2 years ago I made a vampire costume with a top hat that had a fun Burlesque feel to it.
I used a black romper from Forever 21 as the base and then added the rest. And same with the top hat.
Last year I ordered a bunch of belly dancing stuff to make a gypsy costume.
But this year I am really excited! I am going to be the Black Swan and my friend is going to be the White Swan! I just started woring on the costumes but here is what I've got so far.
I bought a french corset camisole and pulled out the boning and have sewn on some feathers... I have a lot more to go but so far I think it's a pretty good start!
In this pic the black tutu had not been finished but I completed it last night.
I'll keep you posted!
