Every so often we get to do something really out of the ordinary and this project was one of them. Instead of wondering how to incorporate period detailing or adapting period shapes for modern bodies we get to make sculpture. Well one could argue that all patternmaking, and the subsequent garments are sculptures, since they are the three dimensional result of the two dimensional pattern, but we don't think of clothing often in those terms.
I had a blast creating these costumes for a 2003 production- not all of my team felt the same way, it was more of a "props" type job and required us to invent the construction as we went.
More to come.
