Last week one of the Creative Directors/Stylists working on MTV's Video Music Awards got in touch with me and asked if it would be possible to work on replicating Red latex suits that look like the original one in Britney Spear's "Opps I did it again" video. Which after looking over the images for awhile I believe the original suit was actually made of vinyl cause I think I saw some stitched seams. The challenge.... they would be on young girls in a dance segment. It's hard to tell in the tiny video but the girls were only 4ft 4in tall, and I had never made anything for anyone that tiny before, PLUS they needed to, of course not have a lot of sex appeal (or the least possible for latex anyways) since the girls were in their teens. So, red catsuits, that fit small ladies, that they can dance in and don't look too sexy, that instead look fun and evoke a Britney vibe. Weeeeellll I like to think that I nailed it. I was breathing a sigh of relief when I got the stuff on the girls and from the first fitting it was perfect so I'd say that's a success! Check out the video HERE and see what you think, it's a pretty sort dance segment, the VMA's I felt were set up a bit strange this year with what seemed like A LOT of talking but only a tiny bit of the actual performances and tributes so I at least trimmed it down by finding a video of just the dance tribute segment!
