Singin' in the Rain



I've loved this costume for years. From this sequence in the movie Singin' in the Rain:

Sadly I don't have Gene Kelly to dance with! ;D

I started beading and sequin-ing in November and carried it around with me everywhere. Most of the armbands are made by me as well, and I dyed the pantyhose (in the movie there's a slight green sheen in close-ups.

The shoes (dyeable bridal shoes) were really hard to find (nobody carries dyeable round-toe pumps!) and extremely painful. Ugh.
