A Mid Winter's Dream tale

Titania's crown
I am currently working with The Company of Fools, creating some costumes for their show "Midwinter Dream tale." Here is Titania's crown, ready for  the next fitting.

It's realy put me in the Christmas mood, as folks come to visit my Christmas sale at the studio. The crown uses icicles wired to a frame, then wired again in an artistic way, to hold the icicles upright. then i wove strips of her dress fabric around the icicles, to give a band to the crown. It needs to be lgiht, as this is a very physical comedy!

I have created Titania's costume and sorted out the chorus. I don't wnat to spoil it with too many details!

The show opens at the Great Canadian Theatre Company November 29th, 2012.


  1. This is stunning. I am glad I found your blog through Linkin. May I invite you to visit me: I so appreciate your creativity ... very talented!

  2. The crown is beautiful! I'm sure the production will be a hit. I hope you'll share more pictures of the costumes you made.

  3. The show is going really well. Thanks for your comments. I'll be adding more costume work as the blog rolls...
