I made this skirt with Andy Jordan, and hand stitched those coins to a spandex base. Claire Aquila and Ananda Keator also helped us, especially at crunch time, right before it had to be picked up. I also had made a big tail fin, which took many hours, though true to form, isn't even depicted in the ad. I made this when I was working with Izquierdo Studios, which does many awesome projects like this.
We also like to try things on sometimes before we send the out, and you can see a picture of my beloved Andy trying on this tail HERE.
