As you can see this was a very dramatic costume as well as having "theatrical" gestures. The artist also found one part of the bra for sale on ebay.
This is a beaten copper or brass piece with a "jewel" set into the snake's head. (I wonder how the two parts got separated?)
However the artist felt that a glass version would be more dramatic. So we began experimenting to get the shapes right for her. A cast was taken to ensure the pieces would be comfortable. This was used to make a mould for the glass to drape over.

There were other pieces to be prepared for the costume too. You will need to wait for the performance for the whole costume to be revealed. I will add it here when I have the images.
And here is the whole costume:
