This series of posts is definitely long overdue! For Fringe Week this past year, I was the costume designer for a large live on stage shadow cast production of Jurassic Park. It was a huge undertaking and I designed 35+ costumes! It was alot of fun for me as I had to develop designs to convert the roboticized dinosaurs from the movie into human versions that allowed for flexibility of movement on stage. Note: During the performances, the Raptors were required to do a tango for the entire duration of the kitchen scene with Timmy and Lexi
I've got a ridiculously large amount of pieces that were made for each character so I won't be able to post them all on here. But if you would like to see more, please visit my blog! http://smashworks.blogspot.com/2009/09/long-awaited-epic-blog-post-of-jurassic.html
For the Velociraptors I made a silk screen and then hand screened a 'scale' like pattern on the fabric. I used fleece for the head and extremities and white faux leather for the nails and teeth. The gloves and spats had velcro closures.
I made a matching purple elastic harness for the girls to wear over the black bodysuits.
