Bird of Paradise Costume

This morning The Animator's Wife joined the rest of the Suburban Gypsies in a promo on Fox 5 for this weekend's performance at Arts Alive. The Fox 5 promo can be viewed here, and here's a look at their most recent performance.

This costume was inspired by the peacock, The Animator's Wife's favorite bird. Careful consideration was given to the stitch patterns so that it  would look as feathery as possible.

There's actually some hidden shaping in the bust to give this just the perfect fit, and it closes in the back with three delicate buttons.

I think everyone thinks of peacocks when they think of pineapples, so of course that was the stitch pattern of choice for the skirt.

I'll post an update with photos from the performance next week, but the pattern is available now on Ravelry and Etsy.
