Keep Calm and BEDAZZLE!

Thanks to the amazing Emma Hoy, we're coming at you with 5 cool, home-customising ideas for your pole costumes.

 

CRYSTALS

Stick on - it may only last one showcase, but this is the cheapest and easiest way to add a bit of sparkle!  Stick on jewels can be bought online or at your local $2 shop!

Glue - you can glue crystals on yourself, but there is some technique involved in keeping it neat!

Hot fix - you’ll have to get a hot-fix gun (around $20 on Ebay) then you can buy hotfix crystals online - just make sure the size of crystal you’re buying fits the tips on your hot-fix gun.  Warning; this can be highly addictive!

TRIM

Tassels, sequins and beads!  Trims can be bought online, or from Spotlight and Lincraft.  This can be a really inexpensive way to customise your costume. Trims can also be used as improvised jewellery or stuck to a comb to make a matching hair piece!

ATTACH SOMETHING!

This is a really effective way to bling a costume that’s also super easy to reverse - big stitches can be unpicked :D

Make a tail, a belt, a sparkly fabric feature and attach it to a costume you already have and make it as big or small as you like!!

Once the show’s over, just remove the trim and start again!

Here’s a Glamazon costume Em made by sewing some stuffed silver foil fabric onto inexpensive black swimmers - add some stick-on crystals and a belt buckle!!
