I just finished a production of Peter Pan as the costume and set designer. We had 58 people in the cast and somehow they all went on stage in a costume (although it was a pretty near thing at the end!).
I have to say that the costumes of this show are some of my favorite that I've created. I thought I'd share some. My Peter concept was distressed since there's no one there to take care of him so I did a fabric with a great leaf like print under his main tunic and razored the fabric...as well as sewed seams with a leather cord for extra texture.
My favorite thing to work on was the fairies. I made each set of wings to a custom size for the actor and they are made to work without elastic. I took a screenshot of each of the fairies wings from the movie so the veining is accurate for the character. I found a great stretchy glitter netting and did the veining with fabric paint. They moved great on stage! Each of the dresses I used parts of at least two different patterns to get the dress I was going for.
And another of my favorites was creating the head for Nana. I had almost run out of time so I made it in two nights...but it came out pretty good anyway
and a view of the inside
Hook is definitely one of my favorite costumes but although I designed it, I farmed out the sewing and construction. The hat was originally an ugly halloween pimp hat that I had someone cover with the brocade fabric from the vest (which is really a curtain...lol) and the shoes are cheap Walmart women's ankle boots that I cut down and added a buckle by cutting links off of an ugly cheap bracelet and mouting on elastic.
