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