How the Idea of Creating a New Stage Costume was Born
Etereshop designers have a lot of ideas. Besides we have gone through various fashion shows in order to get fashionabale trends and be inspired by talented and well-known desiners. Often we combine and transform out experience and new ideas into original costumes, like this one. We were inspired to create such a costume by the following interesting designs and fashionable clothes.
From the Sketches to the Final Costume
Designers offered several costume sketches to choose from. Marketers conducted a study, the choice was made in favor of the last sketch.
Look at the render with a 3D model in a black bodysuit with mirror patterns.
So we decided to create an outfit, consisted of several separate elements:
- Black high collar bodysuit with long sleeves.
- Gloves with golden nails or claws.
- The claws with the hanging pendants.
- The stiletto shoes.
- The wide black and gold brimmed hat with chains.
Elements of the future black and golden mirror bodysuit
After some inspiration and brainstorming the ETEREshop designers idea was to create a black turtleneck bodysuit with long sleeves. Black color was chosen as a base color of the costume. It looks great and suits many other additional elements and colors. Golden color of mirrored tiles was a good combining partner for the black base fabric.
Black velour was chosen as the main fabric for the costume. It is beautiful and pleasant to touch.
The Bodysuit layout and golden mirrored tiles cutting
Tailoring the bodysuit consisted of three main stages. The first two stages are the creation of a template with a mirror layout. Actually tailoring body from velour. The third stage is the gluing of mirror tiles to the fabric.
Producing of gloves and claws of the mirror costume
The most accurate and precise thing about making gloves, or rather claws, is to make them look organic, not intimidating, but noticeable. And that the models were comfortable enough to use them.
Producing of the wide brimmed hat with chains
First, we made a mockup of a hat out of cardboard. Hat brim diameter is 56 cm, cylinder height is 8 cm. The girth of the hat is 173 cm.
Chain pitch is 1.5 cm with the chains of different length.We experimented with length a lot. You can make the chains shorter, but place them tighter on the brim. We used the wider pitch option and made the chains longer. Chains should be very thin and light. Thick chains could add weight to a product. And the model woild have a very hard time in such a hat.
Golden Mirror Shoes Manufacturing
To make the shoes, we took the model of over the knee boots. But we need to make the toe more sharp and pointy and shorten the tops. We used eva to point the toe part. Then sewed them with black velour. It was important that the shoes would be tight enough not to fall off.
After that, we applied gold mirror ties and fixed the gold chains.
Accuracy is required at the each stage of work, to ensure that every element of the costume is securely sewn, fastened, and that the mirror tiles are firmly attached to the fabric. In the result we’ve made a very sexy, unusual and seductive stage costume.
