SALSEEK: What do you love most about this costume and why?
CRYSTAL: A couple of things! The tail of course is the most fun but the off the shoulder look makes me feel sexy!
JENNIFER: The feathers and tail are what I love most about this costume, along with the color combination. The feathers give it the feel of a performance costume and not just a dress.
