As a warm up for my drawing, I like to do a lot of figure sketches. As I have a fondness for burlesque, a lot of my sketches revolve around that theme. Behold, a feathered lady and an aerial hoop artist.
I am going to a cabaret night where the audience is encouraged to dress up according to a theme. The theme we have been given is the circus. Now, I have a somewhat extensive fancy dress wardrobe and I like to be able to wear costumes more than once – so I am updating a bear costume that I already have into a Wonderous Dancing Bear of Rave. For some inspiration I drew some dancing bears to give me an idea of what I’d like my costume to include. I plan to blog some how-to ‘s if ever you find yourself with a need to dress as a dancing bear…
Bear – ears/fur/claws/muzzle
Accessories – tutu/fez
How To ‘s for each of these to follow! I’m looking forward to putting it all together, I can bear-ly wait!
