I got the Moulin Rouge bug and began making the Black Diamond costume from the character Satine. I started with a black bustier and then I glued about 3000 rhinestones on this costume. I sewed the tux and tail and the lapels on then I glued rhinestones onto gloves a top hat and shoes. It was a blast.

Unfortunately I sold it for cheap on Ebay thinking I would never wear it again and to this day all I have are the Halloween photos and memories.

I still have the Moulin Rouge bug and I recently made another showgirl costume with a feather bustle and I put together a costume that looks exactly like the Black Penoir that Nicole Kidman wore in the movie.

Total Spent: $350
