Vintage: Using Vintage Pieces to Create Style or Character

This 1920s beaded bodice was lined to preserve it.  

Bodice is an original Victorian piece that was hand decorated with original beaded trims from the period, taken from an old antique cape from the 19th C.

The beauty of the shape and texture is that the beads will pick up light, the shape will be a distorted type of figure for the actor, lending a sense of the macabre, the character, who is a prostitute, wore this bodice with hose, high boots and modern dress pieces mixed up with it.

The Opening Photo was taken in Venice, Italy in 2005 by the artist.
