NEW ITEM! I can now make tahitian costumes of other natural materials (shells, feathers, tapa, you name it!)
This is a bra made of Tapa, headpiece made of shells/foam flowers; bra made of tapa; necklace made of shells; hip hei made of raffia, fabric, shells, and burlap; and a white pareo. This was for the Da Island Way Winter Dance Showcase 2011.
this is the costume in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-V_POJX0ic&feature=player_embedded
More examples will be in soon.
Please feel free to contact me any time!
(PLEASE READ: THIS IS NOT MY ORIGINAL DESIGN, IT IS A COSTUME I MADE WHILE DANCING WITH THE GROUP DA ISLAND WAY. I CAN MAKE A COSTUME SIMILAR BUT NOT EXACTLY THE SAME BECAUSE IT IS NOT MY ORIGINAL DESIGN. THANKS)
