What can I tell you about this outfit (also featured on Marry The Night cover) I haven’t done back in October when I shared with you everything I knew and could possibly find out about it?
Designed, sculpted and molded by Leeroy New, the entire production process of one Muscle Dress can take from 6 to 8 days, depending on the exact size of the piece.
First he sculpts it in clay, then molds it in silicone. After having made the silicone mold, Leeroy uses another kind of silicone (similar to the one some of the Batman suits and other super heros’ prosthetic armors are made of) to cast the mold with.
In-House Atelier modified the black Muscle Dress creating the 3-piece ensemble including top, shorts and shades Gaga rocked in the video with a pair of Christian Louboutin thigh-high boots.
Below the latest version of Leeroy’s Muscle Dress. You can see them all plus almost every sculpture, out-of-this-world installation or wearable piece of art he’s ever created on Strycatcher.
