Aladdin - City Academy
Here are the costumes I made for the City Academy Christmas Pantomime 2014: Aladdin, written by Pippa O'Brien.
The reason we went for pink with the Genie, is because the song he sings is 'Fabulous, Baby!' from the musical Sister Act. In this song there is a line about being dressed in 'hot shocking pink'.
Also the Genie is a camp character in this version. Since I wanted to keep a bit of original 'Disney Genie' in there, I decided to go with a blue ensemble for act 1, when he is inside the lamp. The pink ensemble appears with a bit of 'panto magic'.
The shoes we used for most of the leads are Indian Khussa slippers or also known as Indian wedding shoes.
I did buy an Indian top because of the heavy embroidery & jewels and remade it for 'Prince Ali'. Also Jazmine's dress is supported with a store bought corset. Other than that I made all costumes from scratch.
On my Instagram you will find a lot of pictures of the making process.
