The costume was only about half finished when we did the shoot, so I will be updating with more photos. It started with a black basic corset in pinstripe with gold piping accent and a little 80’s vintage red cropped jacket with red and white detail. I just put her in a little black slip skirt and leggings, a black leather necklace and tophat, and pinned a dangly gold necklace to the bottom of the corset. I made a costume whip out of long strips of black fabric, a spatula handle and electrical tape! It was super long and looked really great for the shots! I suppose for the actual rental, I may cut these down so nobody gets hurt 🙂
I started with 2 navy dresses. Left side was a 40’s rayon thing with mock tneck, so I made it a wide boat neck. The right side one was a nice 60’s era coctail suit. Both were hemmed to a short fun length. I cut the zippers out of the backs of both and added ribbon loops and privacy panels to make them lace up style to fit different sizes for our rental section at the shop. The sleeves were allready 3/4 length, so I left them as is. Then I just decorated and accessorized with red and gold trim and nautical/military pins. Add some little pockets, white belt and white gloves and were done!
