Katy Perry dresses
Katy Perry wears latex lightning outfit on BBC show “Let’s Dance for Sport Relief”
This past week I got the awesome latex design opportunity to create a custom latex catsuit for Katy Perry with lightning as the oufits theme. I’ll need to scan and post my design sketch at some point as well to show you the original concept that I worked out with her amazing stylist Johnny Wujek but for now here’s some screen shots of the real thing. Since Katy’s dance routine for the show is so rigorous you can’t really catch the whole of the latex outfit for very long but she’s wearing lightning trimmed latex gloves, latex elbow pads, a latex lightning belt, black high waisted briefs and the piece that makes the outfit what it is, the latex lightning catsuit. Figuring out a way to create the lightning effect in a manner that would look good on camera, work in latex, and compliment her figure all while within a very limited time frame was a bit of a challenge but I was super happy with the end results, I love the lightning’s “movement” on camera mixed with the lasers.
I also had the pleasure of working on latex shorts for the boys to wear during her performance. Unfortunately the dark lighting for the lasers tends to make it a bit hard to catch but you can kinda peep them in this shot and the video.

Schick Quattro for Women on tour with Katy Perry
Over the summer I had the great honor of working with a team of talented people at marketing firm “Amplitude” on their campaign for “Schick Quattro for Women” razors. They were going to be the main tour sponsor of Katy Perry’s world tour and wanted something unique to help the girls that would be touring stand out in a crowd. After a few talks we decided that putting the signature Schick wording on a halter dress would not only be fun and unique but also allow for the girls to be able to work long hours without much discomfort. Some skirts were also made for the additional girls that came to help out at each new location to assist. Each letter on the dresses was meticulously cut in a different font, different sizing, etc, along with the Schick logo. It was a super consuming project but one well worth the effort. The girls job was to get people to try out their photo booth, (some of the pictures you see here) which was super fun I might add, so they wanted to catch people’s attention and excite them into coming over to talk. I had the pleasure of getting to go to the Los Angeles part of the tour, so much fun! Was great to see the reaction from people that had never seen, nor heard of latex before! Schick also produced a video of the “making of” the dresses, which you can view on Youtube HERE!
