|I revamped my Kraehe original costume to look more like how a real ballet Odile costume would look. I'm convinced that Kraehes black feather edging to her tutu skirt is inspired by the soft feather-like effect of real ballet tutu's which have dagged edges, as in Odile's tutu costume from the ballet Swan Lake. |
So I added some gold lace detailing around the tutu skirt.
I then dagged the tutu net frills, ie cut the points into the net skirts outer edges. Strictly speaking dagging should be done to the net tulle before it is gathered and formed into the skirt (because it is a lot easier to do with the tulle lying flat), but I didn't want to dis-assemble the net frills, so I managed to dag the edges with them in situ.
Feather arm puffs combined with stocking arm gloves (borrowed from Velma Kelly cos) added a bit more style for the arms.
Finally, combined costume with sheer black tights and some patent high heels..because I think the costume looks Fab like this - and it's sort of demi point. ^^
London Expo Oct 2010 - Sat
I loved wearing it at Expo, and got some nice pic requests, which is always good.
Thanks to David who took these Fab pics at Expo and sent them to me.
