Last year, I had the pleasure of sewing a bit of set for the wonderful people who are Sink the Pink London. I’m pretty sure you’ve seen my 6-foot vagina already but here’s the link if you are yet to see it.
This year, on June 21st, Sink the Pink (STP) are holding a Summer Ball and I’m making about 18 costumes for their dancers. I’m simultaneously crapping myself in trepidation and excited beyond reason.
As you can see, it’s pretty bloody sparkly. STP’s up-coming ball is a slightly new direction for the club but inevitable given how much it’s grown. If you’re familiar with Paris is Burning, it’s that kind of ball. But with a very STP angle. It’ll be at the Troxy, a huge, beautiful venue which can hold 3,000. 3,000 people, you can see why I’m slightly nervous. My part in this is to make outfits for 6 dancers in 3 different numbers. I’m going to hold off posting the full costumes til they’re done and in the proper context (make up, hair, etc) but here’s a sneak preview.
Category is . . . .Goddess.
It took a bit of planning and messing about with fabric but I’m just about done.
Second category is . . . Club Kid Couture.
Still in early stages but I’ve got the concept sorted.
Third category is . . . .
Nowhere near complete. Or started. But these are the notes I took from a meeting.
With luck, I’ll have enough time to finish a ribbon dress as well! I’m having a blast making this stuff, there’s nothing else I’d rather do.
