Why I chose to make this costume:
During my planning for the Fashion Show I thought of having a matching Angel with the Pink Bubblegum Angel come on the Runway. I had some unused baby blue pleather and left-over white fur and decided to give it a go.
How I made this costume:
I made the two-colored dress with an open back and lacing. After fitting it to the model, Mandy, I sewed a fat fur trim on the bottom hem and made matching fur cuffs and boot covers. The shoulder flaps clasp at the base of the neck in the back.
To really compliment the Pink Angel, I also had to make wings. Eventhough the design was different this time, this pair also have fiberoptic layers between the feathers, powered by the same color-changing source. To complete the costume, I installed blinking blue live-wire in the wrist cuffs, and made some cute blue/white ears for the wig.
My thoughts on this costume:
Mandy totally looked the part in the costume, and received many compliments on the outfit. Nessa, who looked so fantastic in it, was literally mobbed at AX for photos.
