'The Thong Dress' was one of the most memorable costumes from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. The pink, orange and black mini-dress is made of rubber thongs, and was worn by Hugo Weaving (Anthony 'Tick' Belrose, AKA Mitzi Del Bra). 

This mod-inspired costume consists of an arrangement of thongs and clever colour choice, and features Chanel gold-linked chain detailing. Due to a tight budget, costume designer Tim Chappel called on his mother’s staff discount at Target to buy the materials for a total sum of $7.00!

This item includes the dress, a matching pair of platform thongs and a matching handbag with gold chain.
