Elle – Ready to Wear – Adult S – EUR 470

Suitable for variations from La Esmeralda, La Fille Du Pharaon, Raymonda and Le Corsaire. This costume is one of a kind (only one in stock).

A word from the designer of this costume Elise Nikula:

“I love making tutus for La Esmeralda because the variations are so versatile in their costuming style. The costumes for Esmeralda are always so different, so there is definitely a freedom to do almost anything you want. Especially the color scheme can be basically anything. For this costume, I picked this beautiful emerald green velvet and rich bronze net. It’s a very antique color combination, which I think is beautiful. I also added the brass coins, I feel like they belong to Esmeralda’s signature look. In fact, I also love to sew the coins. When I look at this costume, it takes me to the beautiful Notre Dame church in Paris where the Esmeralda’s story took place.”


The costume includes the tutu, the separate sleeves and the lace headband (pictured on the neck of the mannequin). The tiara and the tambourine are NOT included to the product. If you’re curious, the tiara is from Lilli Ballet Crowns, an Italian ballet headpiece brand.

This tutu is a classical pancake/platter tutu which means the stiff tulle skirt stays up, forming a straight pancake shape. The tutu has eight tulle layers of stiff ballet net. The net is hand-dyed limited edition net received from the Royal Danish Ballet. Due to the hand dyeing method, minor color errors may be found. The layers are hand pleated and the top layer has double pleats. There is a hooping inside the skirt. The tulle layers are tacked together with clear plastic tacks. This keeps the skirt layers in one place when you jump for example. The bodice is made of stretchy velvet and has hooks and eyes in the back (no boning in the bodice). The deep neckline is covered with a mesh insert for modesty and the edge of the neckline has a smooth finish without a visible stitch. The bodice has elastic straps. The panty is made with stretchy lycra. The tutu is decorated with gold lace trims, brass coins and glass crystal embellishments. The coins move along your dancing, creating interest and movement to your performance. There are also brass coins in the arm cuffs and headpiece.
