I work in a costume shop, and we’d often get asked if we had a Kylie Minogue Showgirl costume and we had to say no. This being Melbourne, the city of Our Kylie’s birth, I thought we really should have one on offer.
I built it up over an existing corset I bought from an underwear shop. I used strands of plastic pre-threaded beads, feather boas, masses of tulle and an antique brooch for embellishment. I’m about to start work on the headdress.
Purple stretch velveteen with silver stars, grosgrain ribbon, feather boas, plastic beads, antique brooch, tulle.
Kylie’s stylist is William Baker, so credit must go to him!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
