After two years of bi-annual balls, Sink the Pink are now putting on 4 balls every year. FOUR OF THEM in 2016. You’ll find me by the trail of sequins I’m shedding.
With this being the first ball held in spring, the rehearsal and prep period was much shorter so deadlines were tight. But all those years of Catholic School came in handy since I did the bulk of the construction in the two weeks leading up to last Saturday’s show (whilst still holding down my day job). I’m still a bit shocked at how much I produced.
So welcome to Church of Sink the Pink….we’re sinning in mixed fibres, Leviticus would have a fit.
- 20 tearaway nun frocks and habits. Plus two adorable pink choir boy tearaway frocks and ruffs
2. One Garden of Eden Eve catsuit that had to withstand the death-dropping ways of Raven Mandella. Oof look at the hair!3. Circle skirt Sporty Christ for Glynfamous. I love how happy he looks here. 4. One Leona Lewisham Sister Act (and me in that cat dress again…no time to sew anything) 5. Possibly my absolute favourite piece I’ve made. Feathery Heaven. Or Barbara Cartland, or Fluffy Prawn depending on who you ask. I love it.
6. One of the earliest cat suits I’d ever made given new lease of life in a Bowie number.And one last thing…things
7. Red Sequin dresses for Tainted Love. These were for another show last year and they looked so good, we rolled them out again. Originally, there were 9 tearaway (again, always tearaway!) dresses but I think 5 of these were reused last weekend.
Yeah, I did alright here. I’ve been uploading pics on Instagram but I’ll be dealing with these piece by piece in the next few days on here. Until then, here’s the opening number…
There were so many, many wonderful looks, go search the hashtag #sinkthepink on Instagram, cheer up yourself.
