Rich Metiku contortionist artist’s costume

Rich Metiku is a contortionist artist. We designed a jump-suit with white lace and lycra inlays. During the design period we listened carefully to the information she gave us about her act, and in terms of stage dress what could be annoying. We kept in mind what could be attractive for her, and what not.

The most difficult part of the preparation was to find the matching colour of the body net fabrics to her skin tone. As far as we could not find the proper colour, we colour painted white tull to her skin colour.

The dress was set up of white lycra, lace and skin coloured tull. Afterwards blue gradation was painted with airbrush technique, and the dress got the Swarovski rhinestone decoration.
