So this year we have collaborated with Ivy Rayne again for a Competition Costume, with the theme Neon Dream Fairy.
The start of the idea was to make something in bright colours, I ended up using neon Pink, Green and a Blue. The design then continued to have golden leaves crawling all over it, giving it the fairy influence. She liked the idea of a tutu, but they are not the most practical on the pole, so we went for a ruffle of tulle on the bum.
The vines and leaves all had to be hand basted on first and then sewn on, it was a big job but all worth it I believe.
And in the end I decided she had to sparkle while on stage, so more than 500 Swarovski crystals were added on top of that.
The first toile went well, it needed some adjusting but overall okay.
When I started on the real deal I realised what I got myself into with those gold leaves. I am sure in my 20's I wouldn't have had the patience to sit through and hand baste than sew all of those vines and leaves on with a very small zig zag. But now the idea of creating something stunning far out ways the time it takes.
The Crystals took me a while to add and I still think there could have been more added, I had just run out. I had wondered if I should buy more, but luckily there is always a deadline.

We are working on something new already, so bring on 2018 for the next load of costumes.

I have had Bikini Designs for pole dance for a little while now. But I have decided to be a bit more official and actually do it as a part time job now. So I made a 2017 collection and here they are.
I used the names of people I know and people that have inspired me to create these designs. They are available on my Etsy Shop and more images are on my Website.
We have the Ivy Rayne set
Then the Ruby Top and Champayne knickers
The Lucy top and Melinda Shorts with skirt
The Emma Wrap top and the Jean high rise shorts
Then the Doris Monokini
And the last the Madison Monokini
It was a lot of work getting all of these together and making this collection, but if you love doing something it is always worth it.
I can't wait to see people train in these bikini's this year.
lots of love
