Yippie ki-yay yall, were off to the Glitter Rainbow Rodeo!

These pants are perfect for dancing cowboys or Indians! Theyre disco-tastic, super comfortable, and make me feel absolutely awesome. Seriously, you cannot stand still if youre wearing these leggings.

Some people are afraid of tight metallic pants, but Ive always felt like they glossed over parts of my body that Im less comfortable with. From my experiences at Burning Man, I get more attention (from men and women, sexual and just plain awesome) with glittery fabric stretched over my body than when Im completely nude. Which all adds up to say that you dont have to have a perfect body to look perfect in metallic lycra.

I think this is my favorite waistband yet. Its super comfortable and super sexy. Yeehaw!

I used a very stretchy silver lycra for the pants. The fringe is made from 5/8″ strips of foldover elastic, which comes in a million bright colors and has a great flow to it. The ends are all seared to prevent the elastic from fraying at all. The gold strip isnt really functional, but I think it gives attitude to the leggings.

Of course I made everything else in the outfit too (except the amazing pinwheel), but youll have to wait a couple weeks till I have all that posted as well.

There are tons more photos on my blog! http://madebyjulianne.com/?p=3924

Your leggings and YOU look awesome, Juli!  However, Lycra is a privilege (NOT a right) and you are one of the lucky ones that have that privilege.  Me? not so much!!   Cheesy

That waistband is so cool!  And the rainbow-ness of it all, of course.  Yay rainbows! Cheesy
