Blind Mag- Tao of Mag
Additional info from Alex Kavanagh:
“There seems to be a lot of interest in the Tao of Mag dress, here are some images.
It has a lot of draping, which can be forgiving for bad sewing or less than perfect bodies.
There is a front panel of feathers under a deep v neck that is asymmetrical but due to Sarah’s dance it rode up on her arms so you can’t really tell. It was really tight around the arm, I wouldn’t make it that tight (it made big red marks on Sarah).
The slit is quite high. The bottom of the skirt portion of the dress was sewn shut, making it like the bottom of a sleeping bag, with the hole for the legs actually coming out the side (creating the interesting draping of the skirt). It’s hard to explain!!
As you can see, the fabric is stunning, I think you’d have to look at upholstery fabrics to get something as dramatic.
The accessories are the long black leather gloves held up by the leather cuffs with chains, the boots (same as Chromaggia) have extra cuffs on them as well.
The fans we used were cheap paper fans with a floral pattern, we spray painted them gold on one side and black on the other.
