I have been wanting to do something like this for some time.... inspired by an old vaudeville dance act where one side is dressed as a bride, the other side dresses as a groom. 1940's Burlesque dancer Zorita took this act to a new level, turning it into a strip-tease (blog.playfulpromises.com/storage/zorita_halfhalf3.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1335870083202).

My costume can also be stripped down piece by piece, as the jacket connects to the shirt, the shirt connects to the corset, and the skirt/trousers can be removed to show the stunning corset underneath!

I explained this idea to corsetiere Boom Boom Baby, and she created something even BETTER than I imagined!
