Black and White Party

251 250                     “Awww Someone give Edward a hand”!!

I lined the black rubber and pvc suit with silk to be a little more comfortable, however the scissor hands, which were part metal were show stopping when it came to picking up drinks from the bar!

The ‘Vegas’ black and white satin showgirl outfit was trimmed in black feathers and ostrich plumes.

Feeling pretty ‘Two Faced’!

I used latex to build up the disfiguration and matched the hairpieces to achieve symmetry.


‘Poison Ivy’

I gilded the 1,200 ivy leaves on this bodice.  The ruby jewellery was encrusted with Swarovski diamonds and the look was completed with gold eye brow prosthetics. Gorgeous.
