Design Process

Designed, sourced and built, alongside Curtis Smith, the costumes and set for a 1890s-inspired Steampunk world for the characters to live in. Much of the cast of 21 youth performers had two roles, and thus had to allow for quick changes. Many costume pieces were embellished with foam, rivets and resin cast or 3D printed with cogwheels and gears, and LED elements were incorporated into goggles. The set was painted from existing set pieces, a canvas floor, and three commissioned CNC-built cogwheels, all painted to fit in the steampunk world.
