Each day is a little life...dancing...

Well I don't quite know how it happened, but I've been seconded to make dance costumes.
Not these ones, thank the stars. These were a Spanish ballet costume worn by The Diva last Christmas.
These are for the school dance troupe and are Chinese inspired, not Spanish.
I completed a task to design a Raven inspired costume earlier this year, which appeared daunting at first, but when I broke down the elements, really only consisted of a black leotard, a feather and fabric bustle, a headpiece and gloves. And whilst that might sound LasVegas showgirl, it was anything but.
It actually ended up looking sinister and dark and everything a Raven should be.
I've always avoided making dance costumes, but now that I've done one or two, I see that it's actually a creative outlet like no other. You're not constrained by what's been done before, or how things should be done. You just make it up as you go along.
I like it.
