Brand new custom Kambriel stagewear for Amanda Palmer! These were made especially for the upcoming New Year’s Eve show at Terminal 5 in NYC (with dearly beloved special guests Neil Gaiman and John Cameron Mitchell) wherein the entire “Purple Rain” album is going to be performed live to wrap up 2012 & ring in 2013. In honour of the performance’s muse, I wanted to create a neo-romantic decadent, yet structural look Prince himself would approve of. The jacket design was drafted by hand just this past week & originally made from an intense fuschia brocade which I then layered with four different tones of dark purple, glittering gold & violet paints to achieve a deeper, multi-dimensional shimmering effect. Here’s hoping it sparkles under the lights of the stage!
If you attend the show ~ keep your eyes peeled and you might also catch sight of a sheer, metallic purple kimono I made for Amanda, as well as a raspberry beret. ;)
