Every year in Austin we have an awesome Carnaval event modeled after the one in Rio, but it's done with Austin flare. It's at in indoor amphitheater and they bring in bands and dancers from all over the place and it's so much fun! A lot of people start making costumes months in advance, and I'm no exception. This year I did molded and painted leather masks for myself, my hubby, my friend, and her g/f. I made my costume and also did my friend's costume. I made the pants, cape, mask, and corset that she's wearing. For mine I made the skirt (looks much cooler in better light), the leather and feathers back-piece, the leather and buckled arm bands, and   Her costume was supposed to have pasties with it was well but she chickened out last minute and went covered. Unfortunately the camera battery that showed charged when we checked it was actually very close to dead, so we only got a few unremarkable pictures.

All of us together:

My makeup and cool feather extensions:

Thanks! It's really not as brave as it looks. About 1/3 to 1/2 of the people there are just as scantily clad if not more. One of the most popular "costumes" is body paint and a thong.

You made both those corsets?  Lovely!  The one you're wearing could easily be worn for a steampunk look too.  Wonderful job
