Burlesque Showgirl Outfits

If you’re a lover of the traditional burlesque showgirl outfits, like above, then this is the Youtube tutorial for you. After the popularity of the Burlesque movie and the art form’s revival since the early 90s, this style is growing in popularity. Though, they’re not in everyone’s price range. If you’re thrifty, have some time and no feather allergy then why not give making your own a whirl.

This Youtube tutorial explains how to make a headdress and a feathery tail for your corset/dress. You’re warned that this is a messy process but the outcome looks as good as the professionals. Polish off that sewing machine and let us know how it goes.

Complete the look with elbow-length gloves and a lil bling. Then if you’re going full throttle, try burlesquing your own high heels, pasties and nipple tassels. And voila! Showgirl a-go-go!
