Black Swan is a psychological thriller created by Andres Heinz and directed by Darren Aronofsky in 2010. Black Swan story is based around ballet production of Swan Lake. Nina, a dedicated ballerina is a perfect fit for the role of virtuous and frangible White Swan, while the same can be said for Lily, who is best suited for the role of an iniquitous and passionate Black Swan. Nina’s mind slowly becomes unraveled by the pressures of the role, losing her grip on reality and delving deeper into the depths of unknown darkness.
For the Black Swan costume, I will include both the black and white versions of this costume. I will also include any accessories that are needed to bring the Black Swan costumes to live. I will leave links to the items below along with information on each item.
Black swan costume expensive version
For the Black swan costume, I thought I would include this outfit I found on Etsy. I did not purchase this, but it is such a beautiful costume it would be a shame not to mention it. The black swan costume is made from various materials including tulle, satin, jewels and feathers. The costume is made to order so the seller will require your measurements. The price might discourage people from buying but those who do purchase, I believe you are getting a high-quality black swan costume.
Black swan costume cheaper alternative
For the more affordable black swan costume, I found on eBay. This is considerably cheaper than the black swan costume above. The quality is very nice for the price with some nice detail on the costume. Overall a great alternative for those who can’t afford the expensive black swan costume above.
Black swan crown
The black swan crown, I found on Etsy. This isn’t a black swan crown but it was as close to the real thing that I could find. This is a very light crown that you would hardly know it’s on. It is made from the hands found it clocks with Swarovski crystals in the centre. The crown, in my opinion, adds that little bit extra to the black swan costume and makes it really stand out.
Black swan style shoes
For the shoes, I went with a pair I found on Etsy. These are hand made shoes, that are constructed from various materials such as satin, beads, leather and acrylic paint.

I have included this makeup tutorial as it was the one I used and she does a fantastic job in guiding you trough the steps involved.
White swan costume
For the white swan costume, I found a version on eBay. I went for the black swan costume so I didn’t purchase this but I thought I would include it in case you were interested. It is not the replica version of the white swan costume used in the film but its the best I could find and it looks good if you ask me.

White swan shoes
To finish off the white swan costume look, I found a beautiful white swan ballet shoe. This is the same seller from which I purchased the black shoes and the black shoes were fantastic so I have no doubt these will be great as well.
