Brilliant idea. Looking forward to seeing the pics. Win for Madonna. I'm a lifelong fan and have always loved her stage costumes. Have considered doing one of her 'Blonde Ambition' outfits a while back.

This is the necklace and nail polish accesories I picked up cheap on the high street.

cami suspender

The sheer cami suspender was easy to make..basically like a boob tube. I took the shoulder straps off a bra and suspenders off a sbelt. The hard part was matching the scalloped elastic around the hem. In the end I cut off some knicker elastic from some donated knickers. Pic shows carefully removing the elastic.

boots finished

Finished boots with the buttons added. The soles should be painted red but I figured these are going to be re-used for other costumes so I left them.

boots after black shoe dye

Boots after shoe dye. Nice and black. I am really pleased how they turned out. I did buy two packs of shoe dye as I thought one might not be enough since these boots are thigh length and the packaging says will cover a pair of shoes or small boots. But one pack was actually enough. The dye even dyed things like the zipper and elastic. Superb.

Method - I first cleaned off any polish from the grey boots by rubbing down with kitchen paper soked in gentle nail polish remover. Then as per the instructions I used the supplied abrasive sponge with warm water and lightly scrubbed all over. Left to dry. Then I decanted the shoe dye out of its plastic bottle into a glass jar so I could see how much was being used up, and because the plastic bottle looked like it could easliy tip over. The supplied application brush looked rough and stiff so I used one of my art brushes instead. The dye washed out of the brush with water. I def recommend this Dylon shoe dye, certainly changing to black worked fine.

If you are wondering what is stuffed inside the boots for the photo - I made myself these boot fillers a while back, they are usefull if you are trying to paint or dye long boots, they stop them from collapsing. Also can paint all over the boots without handling them - just hold them by the boot fillers. Made from long cardboard tube - empty wrapping paper tube - built out with scrunched newspaper and then wrapped in a layer of wall paper.

Boots - modifying

Thes are my donor boots which I am going to try to mod to look like Madonnas Louboutines. First step is change them from grey to black. Here goes with the Dylon shoe dye..

6th April 2012


This is my sketch breakdown of the different layers in Madonnas costume - As far as I can make out she is wearing a bra top with hot pants, on top of that a sheer cami suspender, on top of that an underwired bra which looks latex or pvc and is halterneck with ring fixings.

Black semi transparent fabric

Fabric for the sheer cami suspender. It is beautifully soft net fabric and has 4 way stretch. (called Powermesh) I used it on my Chicago dress for glad I kept the sellers details. ^^
