Cup Cake Costumes

CUP CAKE COSTUME Cup Cake Costume In June 2020I started these costumes, the first ones for the production. I created 5 cup cake costumes for Priscilla Queen of the Desert. There is a scene which 5 dancing cupcakes and other green costumes feature. For these costumes I used a commercially available kids costume as the basis of my design but changed the patty pan so it was 3D. I used mint green lame and brown taffeta from DK Fabrics in South Australia, tinsel mesh, glitter tulle, green net and trace'n'toile from Spotlight for construction.  Finished Costume Priscilla Queen of the Desert Amateur theatre production September 2021.  Murray Bridge Players and Singers Photo by Jason McCullough  Concept drawing done on Pret-a-template The director of this production had bought a child's cupcake costume as a sample of what was needed.
