Costumes from the Burlesque Hall of Fame

There were several gorgeous costumes which had been worn by burlesque legends on display at the Burlesque Bazaar that was part of the weekend's events. Here are a few snaps! If you click on any of these pictures, you'll be taken to my flickr photostream where there are several more shots and more details.

I was always told the Blaze Starr gown was from the movie Blaze, worn by Lolita Davidovich. Is it really Blaze Starr's???
You may be right, Rick. I guess I'll just have to watch the movie again and see!!! Oh, how I suffer to improve my work...

Can anyone tell me what type of fabric those triangle bras are beaded on? And are the straps elastic, or cord? I'd like to try to create a similar style of top for a new costume.
