Archived Snip: Independant Radar, grunge and sequins

Scans from an old Independent Radar magazine from a Saturday Independent
- dunno the date but I can say with a bit of certainty that is it from this year.  
The above costume is really fascinating just because of the abundance of blue glittering sequins.
They catch the light really well, making the costume look more and more intricate and
expensive or couture like.
Then there is the mask made from a kind of net that is also lined with sequins.
The face made highlights the unconventional use of sequins over the facial features.     
 In the above and below images, the singer is dressed in different textures, including feathered,
which beside the grungy and splattered background makes everything look raw and edgy.
