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 robotized dinosaurs from the movie into human versions that allowed for flexibility of movement on stage.

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_09.html

As all the dinosaurs on the Jurassic Park island were female, it only made sense to dress our one male dinosaur cast member as a female. Being as he was also the director, he thought it was a great idea! I don't have alot of photographs for this costume unfortunately, missing a closeup full costume design, harness, and most regretably the neck corset. The neck corset was made of red faux leather to emulate the mouth of the T-Rex with white faux leather teeth along the top. It had a velcro closure at center front and was boned for structure.

The scale of the T-Rex is much larger than that of the other dinosaurs in the movies so I played with the proportions using the collar, and then instead of the hooded type heads on the other dinosaurs, designed a fascinator with only the eyes on it. It was a big hit!

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.
