High contrast & hand beading
The costume workshop which has overrun the apartment has yielded some fabulous results! Tonight we test those results on the dance floor. My spider-inspired high contrast belly dance-esque costume is below. 20 hours of costume making, watching the sun fall and rise… reminds me of the good ol’ F.I.T. term garment days.
My beaded spider motif—most of these beads are from my favorite embellishments shop, Toho Shoji.
Here’s Raffa as a flamboyant Moroccan merchant (it was my vague mood board concept while we were dreaming up the costume, not to be taken extremely literally considering he’s wearing a French navy, etc).
Heeeeeeere we go…!
