Repurposed Materials for a Tribal Bra

posted in: Costume & Makeup, costuming | 0

In honor of Cues & Tattoos and all the tribal awesomeness awaiting us, here’s a video showing the process of creating a tribal fusion bra from thrift store finds.

The end result could use a little more finishing details (for the most part, the original bra should not show unless you are wearing a vest or shrug to cover the remaining original fabric), but ultimately I was really inspired by the hard work this crafter put into repurposing thrift store pieces into a unique bra. The beading from an old blouse re-strung into drapes was especially cool. Check it out!
