Another Serged Fire Costume

This costume consists of an up cycled pair of pants combined with a simple wrap skirt and wrap top to match in bright pink and purple — two of my favorite colors.Serged costume

The pants were simple — cut the seam, serge the purple up the side and then attach the ties. The ties are made from serged purple “leaves” tied in a knot and sewn with a few hand stitches to the top of the purple stripe just below the waist band. I intended this so I could wear the pants without wearing the skirt as well as with the skirt and also to wear with street clothes to make them just a little more funky. I have this long standing fantasy of every outfit I wear (except gym clothes and lingerie) is some sort of funky cool costume. So gradually I’ve been upcycling the pants.

I like theSkirt tie with "leaf" shape tie on the pants a lot with all the “leaves” hanging in a cluster — it’s short enough to work with fire. I’m particularly happy with the vintage broach I attached onto the top to give it a little extra pizazz. The costume worked well — I used it for a few gigs and the photo shoot Love this Vintage Broach! featured in The City Exposed piece as well. it was well worth it, as a simple costume that took under 5 hours to throw together.
