Agent Costume custom made costumes made it into “Party of the Week” section of the Sunday Herald Sun. Awesome!
I made the silver skirt, space age booties and fingerless silver gloves sported by Chissy Bray from We Go Bang Bang, pictured here with a gorgeous bumble bee.
And I made the amazing Air hostess and satin lined suitcase filled with all sorts of air-travel no-no’s worn by the Party Queen and host herself, Tiffany Farrington.
The air hostess dress, hat and suitcase was constructed slowly after several weeks. Tiffany, is an incredibly creative woman who knows how to put a great idea together and build on it.
She basically came to me with her idea already thought through. All she needed was a person with the technical know-how and time to put it together.
I drew some illustrations to double check I was getting what she was putting down and she sent reference photos and images whenever required to illustrate her ideas.
We had fittings, we had fabric sample checks, colour checks, all to make sure the design was progressing as desired.
It is a great pleasure to work with someone who knows what they want and sticks with it! There was no dithering around saying “maybe this,” “maybe that,” no major decision changing or dramas as to what’s going to look best, it was a pretty steady progression right from the initial discussion to the final outcome, and she was always on hand when I needed to navigate potential barricades or hurdles.
And at the end, it was strange saying goodbye to the suitcase! After the weeks of cutting holes, spray painting, hacking the insides and re lining it all, padding it and making it comfortable, it was strange to realise it was suddenly complete, and ready to party!
And what do you know? There it is in the Sunday Herald Sun! Very exciting for me.
