Homemade Black Swan Halloween Costume

This was my Black Swan costume for 2011. After I saw the film I wanted to do the costume and also a lot of people started telling me that I look like Natalie Portman. I already had the pointe shoes and tights. I bought a rehearsal tutu online. Then I bought a zipper up corset from Charolette Russe and used black crushed velvet and sewed a top that wrapped over the corset.

Then hot glued black feathers, silver gems, and silver sequins that I darkened with watered down black acrylic paint onto the velvet. I also left a lot of the messy glue on it to give it that melted and evil look. Then I bought a cheap sequin crown and darkened it with watered down black acrylic paint. Painted my hands and used the makeup tutorial from Michelle Phan on YouTube to do my own makeup.

      This looks amazing! Question, could you tell me the specific name/brand of the tutu? There’s so many online I don’t know which to get, but this one looks great. Let me know if you do. Thanks!
