Paper costume based on the crane character from the Japanese story designs I posted last month.
A couple of photos of the progress, and theatrical shots of the costume being worn (Photos by Isabella Andronos and Michael Scott-Mitchell).
The design is based around the idea of raising the shoulder height of the wearer using a frame structure, so that the bird’s head appears convincing while the wearer’s own head and shoulders are obscured in the collar and chest feathers.
A recent commission from “ark17” on DeviantArt to draw seven characters from Cirque Du Soleil which was long, tiring but immensely satisfying to do!
Top-to-bottom/left-to-right: The Pierrot Clown and The Ballerina from "La Nouba", The Male White Singer also from "La Nouba", The Singer in White from "Alegria", Singer Plume from "Mystere", The Target from "Quidam", and Moon Face from "O".
Many thanks to ark17 for commissioning me and many thanks to the blog vivelecirquedusoleil for providing me with so many reference photos and video clips that I could make sure to get the detail as accurate as possible!
Absolutely gorgeous! I’m glad the blog content was able to help inspire these :)
