The Circ du Soleil costume designers, body painters and set creators deserve a special nod. Contortionists are kinda freaky, watching some chick tie herself into a pretzel could potentially be rather creepy, but the brilliance of Circ is through costuming they transform the performers into other worldly artworks, the results are memerizingly beautiful. The bright colors and often animal or elemental themed decorations encourage the audience to suspend disbelief and get on board for a surreal mind blowing performance.
Also take a tip from them in searching for models, gymnasts and dancers can make anything look good.
