Paper ballet costume . . .

 Wonderful paper costumes
* * * 
I have long been enthralled by ballet & stage costumes
(as a young teen i helped out Birmingham rep theatre & adored it)
I fell in love with Isabelles's re-creation of the 
  costume worn by Vaslav Nijinski in the ballet The Peri .
The original costume was  created by Léon Bakst in 1912.

It's amazing how someone could make paper look so real!

I *love* costumes too, especially period ones. Just think how much fun it would be to rummage through the wardrobe department of say...something like "Phantom of the Opera!" :)
