Design Process

Collaborated with the director to fulfill her vision of a paper-like, unrealistic world, inspired by The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Researched 1920s silhouettes, and stylize and exaggerate different elements in the renderings. Worked from existing 1920s style stock costumes, then added fosshape and felt costume pieces that were easily replaced (velcro) for the various roles each character played (from aprons, to hats, to ties and suspenders). Worked with the director to experiment and determine airbrushing techniques and creme base makeup to create the various exaggerated makeup looks for each cast member.
