Challenge Six - Contestant 10
For this challenge I was inspired by S&M and the straitjacket. Outfit consists of yellow shantung silk corset style bodysuit with black mesh detail lined in white cotton with a zipper closure. For the bottom half of the outfit I wanted a hybrid of boots and pants so I made tight fitting chaps/leggings in a black rubberized stretch fabric with racing stripe detail down the side in solid pink and reptile print leather, lined in flesh colored stretch tulle. The boot/pants are attached to the belt harness that is made in the same leather as the racing stripe. The harness features grommet and buckle details at the neck and waist. The bolero is made in a stretch tulle with polka dot detail and is styled after a straitjacket with extra long sleeves and attched wrist cuffs and tying straps, body is lined in white organza sleeves are unlined. The accessories like the wrist cuffs and harness seemed to naturally integrate themselves into the outfit black mesh gauntlets and a blue jeweled leather armband complete the look. I was unable to turn the boot leggings completely inside out as the rubber kept sticking to itself and I didn't want to damage them.
