Which tutu do you want?

I've been dithering between Gold Fairy, which bounces nicely and has a matching gold cap, and Princess Florine's striped number. (I doubt anyone could get Lilac to part with her shoes, wands and staffs.)

With this tutu, I would get the added bonus of two male attendants wearing canary-yellow unitards with black fringe around their hips. smile.gif

I had such fun in the audience last night......I think the production is wonderful in its panoply of colour.....alas, I don't have a favourite tutu. The Sapphire Fairy is lovely in the richness of colour and restraint of ornamentation, the Diamond Fairy crown is magnificent.....the Canari Fairy tutu looks like a picnic basket, but truly, the Lilac Fairy second act costume (vaguely Grecian silk chiffon with periwinkle Louis-heeled slippers), complete with accompanying feather-tipped staff is beyond wonderful. I remember when I first saw the earlier Kirov SB with Makhalina in that flowing lilac costume and it was such a beautiful look.....this is fuller, more period, but altogether wonderful, although not a tutu.
Still sorely disappointed in the wedding purple and gold Aurora costume....I don't know if it is the fabric choices or ornamentation (I suspect both) but it resembles something bought from a catalog and tarted up at home for a recital the next afternoon. Sigh. . .
