I have been a big Madonna fan for a long time. I decided to try to make a famous outfit of hers from a plain piece of canvas. I pleated it, then treated like a one piece swimsuit-like piece, then corseted them all together so it laced up on the sides. It snaps on the crotch and used a bra with birthday hats to form the bodice and coned breast area.
I then spray-painted the whole thing gold and made a head set microphone from wreath-making wire and nail polish and then used blonde hair braided and glued to a margarine container to create her famous hairstyle. I’m really happy with the end result of this homemade Madonna costume.
