Making Irma

A few weeks ago I shared the beginnings of this term's work. Here is my costume for the character of Irma, from 'The Madwoman of Chaillot', starting to resemble my original design! Hooray!

Our group concept is to use inspiration from French patisseries in our costume and make up designs. Primarily I have drawn from patisserie textures, for example the whipped cream topping is conveyed through white embroidery and the soft raspberries are recreated in handmade bubbly shibori silk. Together with a sweet, sugary and fruity colour scheme, this creates a sensory and tactile costume that is utterly delicious!
