Great work! I bet no one in the audience realized that it wasn't made out of fabric. Though I wonder, how well does the Tyvek move? Is it very stiff? I never get anything from FedEx, so I wouldn't know.  Cheesy

(Psst... this is Rococo, not Baroque.)

Wow, My History of Costume and Decor professor would be pissed at me right now.  Yeah Rococo is right!   but really... its a bastard dress of the 18th Century with no basis in actual historic patterning.  I made it up as I went.

The Tyvek moves like a very heavy satin.  It was chosen for 2 reasons.
1. The designer wanted the actress to look like a paper doll
and
2. a LOT of blood was used in this play, and the dress had to be able to be waterproof.

Seriously, the blood on that stage spread faster than smallpox in a kindergarden.  so stain proofing was VERY important.

I would just like to say I saw this production back in the spring (UGA, right?) and I adored her costume! Of course, I thought the whole show was fantastic, but something about Ophelia's whole look really wowed me. Amazing job!!!

Love this! And I thought making a Tyvek kite in 6th grade was kinda rough...
I respect your patience because I would've cursed myself into oblivion over this!




Well done!

Very cool! I love Tyvek. One of these days, when I learn to sew properly, I want to make a dress entirely out of 3M reflective material. Then, I'll walk down a busy road late at night and see if anyone reports "glowy-me" to the news or the police.  Smiley
