About this Costume
Daria is a cheerful and sparkly romantic tutu for Spanish variations, most famous of them of course the beloved Kitri from Don Quixote and the 1930’s ballet Laurencia. This lightweight and flowy costume will make you bloom like a Spanish rose. The beautiful skirt becomes alive in pirouettes and jumps, while the traditionally structured bodice keeps your ballet posture together. The tutu is decorated with sparkly glitter lace which guarantees the ultimate shine on stage!
A Word from the Designer of this Costume Elise Nikula:
“I was inspired to make this costume because I have never done a Kitri act I dress before. I have been dreaming about making this costume for a long time. The color choices for this tutu were obvious, they are very classical colors for the Kitri act I dress. I also picked this sparkly lace as the decoration. As I have never done this costume, I was surprised that it took several days to decorate only the skirt. It was definitely a challenge but I’m in love how the skirt turned out. When I look at this costume, I can definitely see it on stage of any ballet competition and that’s really what I look forward to, to see a picture of a beautiful dancer wearing my very first, original Kitri dress!”
The costume includes the tutu and the separate sleeves. The comb tiara and the rose are NOT included to the product. If you’re curious, both the tiara and the rose are from Lilli Ballet Crowns, an Italian ballet headpiece brand.
