Happy Monday, all! This is part 2 of the Big Cats and Lion Tamers costumes for my intermediate/ advance hip hop piece. This particular one will have to be crafted together. The inspiration and basic idea of where the faux fur will be located is on the image below, top left. Joann’s fabrics has about 10 different animal prints in faux fur. I’m thinking a few yards per dancer to wrap around legs, at wrists, around the skirt, and some faux fur to attach to the black headband to create ears. (Will do a tutorial for this! Coming soon.) One thing I’d like all the dancers wearing the cat costume is to have the black top from Forever 21 (in the style deals, only $4.50). I love the back detail, also will need to wear a black spaghetti strap tank underneath. For the skirt, I want something short and A-line (from H & M $17.95). Nothing too fitted, because when we add the faux fur you’ll need to be able to move–faux fur doesn’t stretch at all. Will post more photos as we make the costumes. Keep dancin’
Costume list: black top from F21, black spaghetti strap tank, black A-line skirt, black headband, black socks, and black shoes. *I will pick up fabric.
