Gigi Vanilla at Girlesque

I was lucky enough to get to make two costumes this year for the Girlesque Expo in Toronto.  One of these costumes was for the stunning and talented Gigi Vanilla.  Gigi came to me with a beautiful vintage photo of a dancer and a pink colour scheme.  From that I created a chiffon dirndl skirt, covered and decorated a bra top and made matching one-finger gloves and a g-string.  I love the bits of pink lace on the bra and waistband, it adds beautiful texture to the outfit and the sparkle which was partly an applique and partly hand sewn gives it a real showgirl feel.  Gigi did a wonderful job at the Girlesque Expo and really brought this costume to life.  Check out the video at the bottom of this post!
