Lady Marmalade Video - Moulin Rouge:
This costume is based on the Lady Marmalade music video, with the hairstyle based on the MTV Movie Awards performance.
BUSTIER PATTERN: Modified Kwik Sew 3166
BOTTOMS : Black cheer/dance briefs special ordered from a cheerleader uniform company. (Actual bottoms worn in music video are bikini, not brief cut.)
TRIM DETAILS : Black beaded fringe on the bottom of the bustier. The top of bustier has white beaded fringe (I ended up swapping it to pale silver in later years.) Various rhinestone accessories finish off the costume, most of which were found in the downtown Los Angeles fashion district shops. Ebay is another good source for this sort of jewelry. The forehead jewelry is simply a rhinestone necklace. I recreated the garter worn in the music video by making a lace garter and adding red and clear rhinestones to the lace with jewelry craft glue.
WIG: I combined 2 blonde Isabella wigs by Magic Touch by ripping out all of the long wefts from one wig and sewing them into the other. Red highlights added from a red Isabella wig.
