      If you edgr it with milinery wire,  snd sometimes one down the  middle, ypu can shape them and give them some floaty lift.

      I would probably do it with several large petal shapes, in sheer chiffon, overlapping one another.  My favorite hoop/stiffening/etc for something like this is guitar string in the hem.   It gives it a bounce that that makes it move almost on its own.

            Hi everyone!


      I want to create a costume that looks like I'm under water. What can I use to hold my skirt up to look like it's floating? I haven't made the skirt yet so I can use any material. I was thinking of finding the lightest weight fabric I could that's not transparent then laying it on a shallow cage made out of chicken wire? I thought about a hoop skirt but I don't think that will give me the structure I'm looking for. Ideas? 


      This is what I'm creating - http://platoisboring.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/screen-shot-2012-10-29-at-09-19-41.png


      I'm even going to have fish on wires. :) I miiiiight make the turtle out of foam and use it as a parasol... maybe.




      Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we are here we might as well dance!
