I love making costumes. They are challenging, but they are a fun distraction from production and administration. These are some pics from a costume I made about 6 months ago for Valerie Laplante-Bilodeau, also known as Inertie. She is one of the worlds top Cyr Wheel performers and she was looking for a new version of her classic costume. She had been performing in a whitish-grey flowy pant and halter top combo. We decided to stay with the grey, but add blues and golds and lots of hand sewn svarovski crystals.
These were my materials before I started:
I wanted to use really fancy materials for this one, so I chose some actual designer materials to start off: Dolce Gabbana and Dior and Gucci textiles. Ostrich feathers and Svarovski crystals.
My goal was to make her something sexy, comfortable, textured and fabulous! I also made the headpiece with handsewn petals, lace and feathers.
