Marilyn Monroe's Bus Stop Showgirl Costume

Finally got to make this amazing outfit! I used a green stretch satin and used pre-strung black sequins hand sewing them into the fish scale pattern, the green is then sewn to a nude bra with black fishnet and finished off with gold fringe, i bough two gold beaded appliques for the hip and added gold rhinestones, legs are finished with elastic and zips up the back, the tulle train is re-moveable as well just like the original costume, I purposefully didn't make all the sequins line up as the original had a used and altered look. I would have put the costume on a dress form but don't have one small enough with legs so a hanger had to do :-)

below pictures of the actual costume and publicity shots of Marilyn herself.
