6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Fun with Tyvek...Costumes as Art! Lots of Pics on: March 11, 2008 08:17:38 AM
Thanks!  It was really fun to make.  The Tarp made a perfect over skirt.  Originally I was going to have her wear a bustle petticoat...but the tarping just poofed out so nicely on its own that there was no need.

8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Fun with Tyvek...Costumes as Art! Lots of Pics on: March 10, 2008 12:30:03 PM
So I got a sweet gig for the Society for Contemporary Art for the Art Institute of Chicago designing/making costumes for four characters performing at the benefit event.  The party was held in the former Carson Pirie Scott building downtown and the theme was 'deconstruction'.  So I designed the costumes for the four characters (Architect, Singer, Painter, Sculptor) using unconventional materials such as tarping, tyvek, thermoplastic, cable ties, memory wire, and sporting equipment and combined those modern elements with fashion elements from the Belle Epoque.  With the help of my two stitchers/crafters Melissa Heischberg and Ilda Marrerro, we created these costumes from scratch adding in a few store bought basics like overalls and trousers. I then painted the pieces and added architectural elements to them. I am quite pleased with the results...
