    Sarah's article on constructing this modern version of a Salome costume is fascinating reading for folks who make their own costumes. The technical problem of the circular appearance of non-circular cups would've been enough to make me sit down and chew my nails!

    I am probably one of the only people in the world that has seen Tanya without her lashes...bwahahahah. That's my big claim to fame. She and I used to dance at Caesar's Palace...ages ago, which was prior to me having 2 babies and becoming a mom.

    Tanya was at the birth of my daughter...and she brought us all matching tierras. Seriously! I have a photo of Tanya, myself, and newborn Sierra (still attached by the cord) all wearing rhinestones. Good lord, I love Tanya!! She is the ultimate.

    Sarah's costumes are absolutely beautiful & unique, so much work. Obviously a labour of love. That Salome one is is one I haven't seen before it is gorgeous.

    I wish she was my best friend - I would beg on bended knee for her to make me something amazing

    I personally don't think any Bella's, Sahars etc come close to Sarah's costumes.

    I don't often see a costume that makes me want to reach for the measuring tape and checkbook, but this is flat out gorgeous! Thanks for posting it!

    I love those gawazee coats! So elegant! Wow.. that olive and peacock blue look gorgeous together as well.

    Sarah Skinner's costumes are just perfection as well. I like the Mata Hari one she did. The set had like 14 different pieces to it. Her research into her costumes is quite inspiring. I found the part where she talked about the bra cups for the Salome costume and making them look circular facinating to read. I would love to make a pearl costume like that.
