Description

This was a Burlesque costume made for a Zoo themed show
we wanted to do a white swan but not with a tutu, with feathers.

There was lots of hand sewing involved, the structure underneath is made from drill and poly boning. and all the feathers are sewn on top.

I also made the underbust corset, garter belt and head piece. It was lots of work but it looked amazing on the night.

Material Notes

Goose feathers, drill poly boning steel boning 20/20 wire.
