Coronation of Poppea Costume Photos

As promised, here are the photos that I took between shows of all the red costumes, I also have the school for scandal ones but they will come later.
For this project we each were given an era between 1600 and 1950 and we had to design for the same character, Poppea, within that era. We also had to use red as our only colour, and use sheer fabrics that shows the different layers and constructions underneath.

I am not sure why, but all the photographs look like the contrast has been upped when i uploaded them, they arent normally so dark. But oh well, here they are....

Edinburgh College of Art Costume Show!!

So its been the stressful and hectic week of the costume show, where all our costumes went on display.
Plenty of photographs were taken and i thought i would share a few of them with you all :)

As I love to do hair, I helped some of the girls out with theirs, these are a few examples of the hairstyles i gave them :)

 There was quite a lot of waiting around backstage, but we managed to pass the time and have fun...

 I wore a costume for the show that my friend made, based on the era 1660. Here I am relaxing backstage... I tell you, corsets are not easy to relax in!

And here we are on stage in all our glory, the photographs aren't great but it shows you the general idea

We did 6 shows in two days, as well as three full days of rehearsals before that, so as you can imagine it's been a looon week and I am very nearly asleep as i write this, but it was so much fun and I am already looking forward to next year; which will be my Final Year at ECA and my graduating show!! Scary stuff!

After one of the shows we did a mini photo shoot of all the costumes, the red Poppea dresses and our other Collection for school for scandal, which I will post later as that is a bit much all for one post.

Finshed Cat, and choreography

So we had our final fitting and first choreography session yesterday, so i took some photos to show you all :)

These are just a few photographs of my finished costume  unfortunately I didn't manage to get any full length shots of the model, but these show the majority of the costume :)

The finished shoes, i dyed them and put the bows on myself :)
And now just a few photographs from the choreography session showing a few of my classmates costumes, they were all so good :)
This jacket is a toile de jouy that my friend drew herself, and it depicts scenes from within the play we were designing for.
