"But shall you on your knowledge find this way."

Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.


I'm a theatre nerd. I just started school for my MFA in scenic (and hopefully costume) design. So this is my professional blog. Or more of a blog with my profession on it. Where I am, what I'm doing, what shows I'm working on, inspiration and the amazing people I meet. I'm sure you'll see some of my work on here too. I feel it will be a fairly exciting ride. What I often say, this is my real life as opposed to what goes on in my head.

Some progress photos.  I’ve decided for the final Carnival I’m going to use elements throughout the story as inspiration for the costumes - you can see three at the top.  The shark is for Lester, being the man that he is (and there’s a reference in his song); the middle is a reference to Green Flash at Sunset, and the third is a nod to the Planter’s Punch rum drinks they constantly have throughout the novel (and god the way it is described I want one sooooooooooo bad but I don’t even know what’s in it).  They’ll all make a lot more sense once colored in and scanned straight-on, so you can see what I’m seeing in my head :)

You’ve seen some lineart of the other ones that are colored; and I’ll explain the rest later.  Very tired.  Got a good 15+ new designs penciled and inked but not colored yet.  And about half of them swatched.

And I just really think the snake man is freakin’ awesome.  He’s one of my favorites, next to the scarlet macaw-inspired costume (not shown) and what Sheila’s main costume is going to be (the one lineart right next to the snake man).

Iconic Film Costumes

Scarlett O’ Hara’s Curtain Dress designed by Walter Plunkett for Gone With the Wind

The color of the dress presented Plunkett with several problems. It had to suit the color of Vivien Leigh’s eyes and it had to conform to Technicolor specifications. Furthermore, it had to look as if it were made from the draperies at Tara. So the dress was aged as if the sun had faded the material.

Also known as the Drapery Dress and the Portieres Dress, the dress has a moss green velvet overskirt that parts in the front to reveal a chartreuse velvet underskirt. It has fitted sleeves with a semi-cape on the left shoulder and a drapery cord belt.

THE BEST QUICK CHANGE EVER

Fun fact: 3 different people (including Sara/thatreveuse) have asked me how this quick change happens….I have my theories, but it will be the first question I would ask anyone involved with the show.
