Cirque Costumes: Not To Be Confused With Your Underwear

Duo Trapeze Costumes

Dear Danglers, today we will be chatting about a topic near and dear to my heart. Please, I beg you do not confuse your underwear (or yoga pants or nightgown) with a proper costume! If youre billing yourself (or hope to someday) as a professional, but show up at my event in some tired looking orange unitard with a rhinestone bracelet super-glued to the collar, or a bra & panties hand sewn to a flesh-toned unitard, eyebrows will be raised and not in a good way. So what makes a good costume? And what does your choice say about you as a performer? Read on.

Consider This

Different types of shows will of course require different costumes your cousin Janies Sweet 16 Burlesque Extravaganza will look really different from the promotional launch of a new energy bar. For the sake of narrowing the field a bit, lets zero in on cirque-style costumes you might wear for corporate parties, stage shows, and higher budget private events.

Consider the act. What do you need in a costume? For example, for our silks costumes, we prefer 3/4 sleeves, lower backs covered, and legs ending mid-calf; but for trapeze doubles, we need arms and shins completely exposed, with no extra fabric around the middle. (Note: ladies, pay special attention to the neckline one good reach could send your charms flying out of your costume. Awkwaaaaard!)

Consider the look. Your costume should highlight the very best of you (your superty buff shoulders for example) and downplay ahem, what needs downplaying (your less than buff derriere perhaps). And please no panty or thong lines, aint nobody wants to see all that. Consider the audience/client. Is this an upscale cirque-style show? Than dont show up in something resembling lingerie from 1875. If bloomers are an integral part of your act, fine, but generally speaking, you want to blend into the main theme or feel of the show.

Elements Of A Great All-Purpose Costume A Summary

Trio Silks Costumes

Protects your body from burns or abrasion, while leaving essential skin exposed.

Makes your body look smokin hot (but not too sexy, makes the corporate folks nervous)

Projects the image youre aiming for (professional)

Looks expensive and well-designed

Fits in with the show or theme

Has a little pizazz to it rhinestones or something to catch the light. Go bold or go home!

Careful about using lots of black youll be performing against a lot of black backdrops (The Great Floating Head from Brooklyn rides again!)

Preferred Materials moleskin (spandex with a little heft), stretch velvets, sparkly materials (beware of fabrics with loose glitter on them though), etc.

More on this soon I want to see you all looking gooooooooooooood! Whether you sew it yourself or hire someone else to make it for you, a good costume is an investment in your career that cant be glossed over. Now, pack those bloomers away and design something fabulous!
