This project is actually from last summer, but I kept forgetting to share it... But anyway, exams are over so I have no excuse!

Last Summer at my school we put on a performance of a Midsummer Night's Dream, with costumes designed by me and made with the help of a small group of other students (and my mum). It was my last year at school after several years of being the head of costume, so I wanted to go as all out as possible, and after hearing what we were putting on had wheels turning in my head for months about what things were going to look like.

Anyway, onto the pictures:

This is the final sketch for what Titania's dress and wings would look like, although as we started making things obviously got changed:

Titania and Oberon's finished outfits:

You can't see very well from this photo, but her skirt is in three layers like I planned Smiley

Puck and Bottom:

I got inspiration for puck being a satyr from this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310717.0#axzz2VdWYMRbz, but since Puck was being played by two very differently sized people decided that the easiest thing to do would be bandage straight onto the legs

Smaller Fairies, as well as Moth, Cobweb, Mustardseed and Peaseblossom we had 3 extra fairies (pink, blue and green):

Now the wings, these were my favourite parts of the costumes, made from coathangers covered in tights and painted. I hand bent every set of wings, the team of us painted them. We let the people playing Titania and Oberon keep their wings after the show (when I told Titania she nearly cried... I think that's a good thing?)
All of the wings together:

Titania's (my personal favourites):


Before every performance we also doused these ones in fine glitter

The Blue Fairy's:

Thanks for taking the time to look, I hope you liked them Smiley

Very nice, the wings are my favorite part!

They look great! Did you have any problems getting the wings to hold their shape once you stretched the tights over them? I'm making a pair right now and when I pull the tights on they kind of squish the wings so they end up looking a lot thinner.
