Demoiselles D'Avignon Picasso Halloween Costume

Hello there and long time no see again. Quickie post of last year's (2015) Picasso Halloween Costume.     (To see my 2014 effort, click here...as I entered a national contest and probably don't have the rights to my own photos anymore....)

Anyway Had been wanting to do this Picasso costume for a few years now.   I got  Gretchen on board to collaborate with me, and we recruited 4 friends to wear costumes to flesh us out so we'd have the whole painting represented, along with our Picasso in stripes.

Gretchen and I wore cardboard costumes.

The rest of the girls wore painted vintage slips and nighties, along with hand held masks.

(detail from my costume; grommeted cardboard for a corseted torso)

(More photos I still have to dig up show my mask-under-my mask, and details of my feet slippers.)
