Hello lovelies! I have my first hoop gig coming up, (and I couldn't be more excited about it) However, I have been asked to do this very, very last minute. I am racking my brain trying to come up with a performance outfit, and as much as I would like to make my own, time is not on my side with this one and I'm not sure where to go and what to buy. Any suggestions and advice is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance! Much love.
You could always take a few old t shirt an repurpose them, make some quick cuts and tie some knots and bam! sexy hooping outfit! You could just cut the sleeves off trim the neck and back to a scoop put some holes in the back and lace it up with scraps that you cut off for the arms. For a skirt you can find one that fits around your hips well, trim the bottom hem off another shirt and use it a draw string, flip the main shirt upside down and cut the neckhole and arms off cutting straight across, then flip it rightside up again and cut a 1 inch line on each side through the hem and insert the drawstring. You could cut vertical slits in the bottom of the skirt, or cut holes in it and use some scraps for another draw string to lace up parts of it. Sounds crazy, I know but there are lots of quick no sew solutions for repurposing t shirts, check your library ,aybe you can find the generation t or next generation t! some of them are rally cute too!
I have a really easy hoop outfit, for a "rave girl" kind of look. All it is is fuzzy leg warmers (if you've got them, if not you can make them out of towels), soffee shorts under a little black skirt (it's really short, I originally got it for a halloween costume) and a tank top that matches the legs. Throw on some glow stick bracelets and glitter eyeshadow and you've got a party!
