Stage outfits

Is there any interest in this? I'm talking mostly about singer outfits through the years, because the boys have been pretty bland/conservative in that area. Well maybe Tuomas' hats and Marko's trousers can be mentioned. ๐Ÿ˜

Anyway, Tarja and Floor have used a limited numbers of stage outfits during each tour, while Anette has (if memory serves) changed outfits more often, but they were in general less elaborate. Let's see if I can dig out some pictures.

Picking this up where I left it...

The outfit Floor wore at Wacken in 2018, and other shows thereafter, was made by Royal Black Couture and Corsetry from Vienna, Austria. From their Instagram on August 5, 2018:

Last Friday a dream came true: @floor_jansen_official of Nightwish rocked the stage at @wackenopenair.official in a bespoke outfit I created for her! It was a really emotional moment, watching the livestream and seeing her enter the stage, wearing the "Guard" outfit. And what a great performance it was!!๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค˜ Thanks so much again for the opportunity, Floor! I couldn't be more happy and proud! Pictures byย @rnr_reporterย and Natalie La. ๐Ÿ™

It's not my favourite stage outfit of hers, but Floor does look great in what appears to be a rather uncomfortable attire -- but what do I know? ๐Ÿ˜

The outfits for the Human Nature photo-shoots and shows were also designed and made by Royal Black Couture and Corsetry. From their Instagram on February 9, 2020:

I'm so proud, happy and grateful that I had the opportunity to create these two bespoke outfits for @floor_jansen_official for the new @nightwish album HVMAN. :||: NATVRE.

Floor gave me a quick briefing with pictures and details of what she wanted, but otherwise I had creative freedom to design something steampunk inspired for her.

Altogether it took about two months to finish these two designs and all accessories.

Thanks a lot for all your positive feedback and lovely comments on this!
It still feels a bit surreal to see my work on CD covers and posters now and I get emotional all over again every time I see a new picture popping up in my feed. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Going back to the Imaginaerum tour, perhaps the first outfit Floor had designed specifically for Nightwish was this one by Scarlette Kara, a Finnish designer. It was first seen at the Imaginaerum movie premiere in Helsinki, November 2012. Prior to this, Floor wore mainly outfits from her ReVamp wardrobe.

It's a shame that my phone's camera is broken, I would have taken a picture of Floor's outfit in that Nevski show last July. She had nothing but the Nevski & The Prospects t-shirt with sleeves cutted and black jeans. She looked so amazing!ย

She certainly did, but I'm sorry to tell you it wasn't Floor, just a Russian impersonator, I thought you would have figured it out by now! That explains why she didn't have the proper show outfit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

While Floor certainly had some amazing costumes over the years, my favourites are some of the less elaborate ones. This one for instance, very simple and classy, still has lots of appeal. Decades tour.

Don't you throw shade at me, bro!ย ๐Ÿ˜†ย just kidding, I like that sense of humourย ๐Ÿ˜ย 

She looks so stunning in every outfit. This is totally out of the topic but I'd love to have a headbanging contest with Floor.ย ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿค˜

Oh you don't know how badass I am. For example, I don't own a hairdryer because as a metalhead, I headbang my hair dry. ๐Ÿ˜„ย But Floor would be a great competitor, whether she's 28 or 41ย ๐Ÿค˜

You are totally badass! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜

Floor's new outfit (Antwerp 2022-11-20) has elements of both previous Human Nature outfits, plus some new cape 'extensions'? Not sure how the fabric wings on her arms should be called.

Edit: And it was confirmed this outfit was also designed and fabricated by Royal Black Couture and Corsetry.
