I just can't stop sketching showgirls! Those Jubilee! ladies have infected my noodle. Don't get it twisted though... I am NOT complaining. I've waxed poetic before about how amazing those over the top Mackie designs are so I'll keep it more brief this time. The Bob Mackie showgirls may be some of his most mind blowing works ever. I've been studying the sketches and photos of the costumes at length. I feel it has inspired me to design without limitations while always maintaining a level of beauty and timeless style.
Here are a few sketches I have done inspired by the Bob Mackie clad ladies of Jubilee! Hope you enjoy!
