hi there loves.
Thought I would share with you the pictures that were taken of my latest uni assignment.
The brief was to create a costume. no more direction than that, so I went with two of my favouite characters ever (because you cant have one without the other), Puck and Oberon from Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.


Puck. Lots of wool and velvet. Also, never try to use pleather as bias binding. so totally uncooperative. dreads are a mixture of acyrillic yarns, merino wool and alpaca. patterns drafted by me, buttons raided from my granny's button tin.


funny little faun pants were built over an existing pair of jeans. Padding added to the thigh and to the back of the lower leg. fake fur over the top half, calico bandages wrapped around the lower leg and then shellaced (appologies for spelling). Feet (which you cant really see too well here sadly) are papier mache hooves built over a pair of shoes. Fake fur glued around the top.


Puck and Oberon.


Cant really see the jacket too well, but it's a cut away frock coat with six gores in the skirt of the back. drafted the damn thing myself, but content with the result. A lot of mucking around with the fit of the sleeves and shoulders because my stunningly beautiful friend who agreed to model it has shoulders outrageously out of proportion to his waist. Worked though. .. finally. after about six toiles.
jacket is a cotton/nylon blend which I dyed and printed, with rayon velvet and that nasty horrible pleather binding. gah.
necklaces are various chains and a pannel of tie wire.
dreads are a mix of acyrillic yarns, merino wool etc. with copper and brass bits attached around random ends.


isnt he one of the prettiest men ever?

Photos arent by me. by a very talented lass called Kiah McCarthy.
Models are Skipp Christiansen (Puck), and Richard Lakos (Oberon).

I asolutely love those costumes, and the photo's

Just one question? did you braid the dreads into their hair or are they part of a wig/hairpiece.

I never studied 'A Midsummer's' in school so I am not familiar with these characters,
but looking at your amazing outfits makes me want to become familiar with them,
great job!
