Hi all... am pondering a lyrical number and saw that several of you had dancers who did competitions with this song.  I saw a lovely grey lyrical costume, but also thought that perhaps a tattered dress or old school uniform might work as well?

 

Can you give me your thoughts?

Thanks x

***** sorry, I just realised I put this in the wrong category!  Admin, can you please help me move it?  Thank you *****

I imagined a baby doll type dress, no flash or bling, perhaps a little pattern with a flowing skirt. School uniform never seemed to fit for me with this song. I think a straight forward lyrical costume might seem insensitive to the message sent by the artist's original video concept. With a little creativity I would try for a convertible costume, one that with a snap revealed another more brilliant fabric indicating the transition from the pain suffered here to the liberation of becoming an angel.

Noel, I like the idea of the convertible costume.  I agree about a flashy lyrical outfit being the wrong message... it just doesn't seem to fit the song.  The one I found was more plain but I just didn't know if it would work.

 

The school uniform dress I was envisioning is like what I see over here (UK).  In the spring, girls often wear a lighter, seersucker cotton dress rather than their heavier uniforms, and I thought perhaps a haggard version might work (worn at the seams, not brand new).  Like this:

I think that one might hide her lines without massive altering.

Something like this?

We had a soloist do this dance a couple of years ago and she had a worn tan color dress over top of a white dress with a kind of wings that she pulled out and attached to her hands.  It was very pretty and fit the sing perfectly.

Hi there. We have a soloist at our studio doing a dance to this song this season. She wears a grey dress that is tattered and torn slightly ( no major holes). Her hair is in a low pony. Goo luck!

I really like the idea of a convertible costume - I'm trying to think of how I could design it so it would have a top layer convert or remove so it actually comes off without a hitch.

Perhaps something that drapes up from the bottom to the center with a simple velcro attachment; swept up from each side to the middle? It would have to be an A line type shape

Or similarly drapes from one side to the opposite shoulder.
