$ 1,167.00 USD
This is luxury costume to be added to your collection. This is a timeless Brazilian samba costume.
*Please note that this costume photos was taken on a dark studio, so the feathers and Lycra in this costume will appear a bit lighter during the day, however when we duplicate a costume not always that specific hue/tone of feathers and Lycra will be available for purchase (***color feather availability in Brazil is very seasonal) so the designer will use the next available hue closest to this original tone. If that happens she will contact us before that is done. Also, some costumes have specific Lycra patterns and it is also seasonal. If we cannot find that type of pattern we will communicate before we proceed.
Please email us if you have any questions about this costume.

Overall the costume will have the same flair and look, close as possible to the wire frame designs, but certain wire frames design and embellishments and pattern/layout could be different.
