Anita Rivera: Paper Mâché Ballet Tutu

Anita of Castles Crowns and Cottages comes from a family of very talented paper mâché artists and inspires me in more ways than one. While looking for inspiration for the corset diaries ballet series, I stumbled upon Anita's exquisite paper tutus.

You may have noticed a blog post or two of my own inspired by Anita's writing style. The operative word here is style. You'll find the rich imagery on Castles Crowns and Cottages is full of style and gracefully woven into a tapestry of captivating tales.

I love the soft, feathery quality the hand made papers lend to Anita's tutus which is not too dissimilar from the look I have in mind for our ballet inspired corsets. Can't you just see the piles of fluffy tulle suggested by this piece? Anita is a sweet lady who would welcome your visit if you get the chance.
