CARNIVAL 2015!!!!




To all of our friends in the Caribbean (Trinidad & Tobago in particular), we wish you a very happy, fun filled Carnival.






Have fun.






Stay safe.



And just in case your dolls want to get into the action... these outfits were borrowed from our posts on making panties, and bra tops.




The second photo borrowed one of the corsets from our "Paper Gladiators" post. I made the bottoms by first cutting a pair of panties out of tulle, then gluing on pieces of a gold doily on top. I cut away the tulle so that only the shape of the doily remains and added gold ribbon to the sides to hold them up.




The inspiration for this bra top came from 1980's designer, David Spada whose jewelry was worn by Grace Jones. This is a single piece of 20 gauge wire wound around each breast. Red ribbon is tied to each side of my bra which ties in the back. A strip of ribbon is added to the middle of the bra then wraps around to the back of the neck.








Some of our girls are in New York right now for fashion week. Others are out in California on Oscar watch. Stay tuned!!!!

    1. Thank you, Billa. I had a good time putting this together! A friend who lives in Trinidad sent me a photo of her in a costume with lots of feathers. That was my inspiration for this year's costumes. Big hugs!!!
