It took a lot of convincing, but I somehow convinced my boyfriend to be the “white swan” while I was the “black swan”. I started off at a dance wear outlet where I found a deformed leotard with attached skirt for him to wear as well as a plain black leotard for myself. I then attached feathers to both of our costumes to give it a swan-like look.
I found an old sparkly headband laying around that I also attached white feathers to for him to wear. For myself I bought a cheap tiara that I spray painted black. I handmade the tutu that I am wearing using tulle and elastic. I bought cheap slippers for both of us and attached matching ribbon to look like ballet slippers. I got tights for both of us to wear. I did lots of white makeup on my boyfriend and tons of black makeup on my eyes.
Everyone thought our costumes were HYSTERICAL! It was definitely the best costume we ever made, and was pretty easy!
