Mount Gambier, A...
I designed and sewed these two costumes and the painting in the background for the practical component of my year 12 visual arts course. If you are not familiar with the Tempest storyline and characters, Ariel is a sprite whom is controlled by Prospero, the rightful duke of Milan who also happens to have magic powers. Whenever he is practicing magic, her wears a “magic garment” , which is what the blue, starry coat represents. The production which I designed for was wanting contemporary costumes. My Ariel costume was heavily influenced by belly dancing garments as I felt the actor playing Ariel had this movement quality during rehearsal. The three dark cloaks were designed for the three spirits which appeared numerous times during the play.
The entire process was very fulfilling and I am unbelievably proud of how they turned out!
