My inspiration comes, largely, from fantasy. Medieval fantasy and mythology tends to lend to a lot of my design choices while bearing practicality in mind. A background in making costumes for LARP means that I tend to make clothes that will last for years.

The showcase features three costumes from Mozart’s libretto, The Magic Flute. My inspiration came from Slavic mythology, as reflected in the Queen’s outfit particularly. Her skull transitions are purposeful, from the innocence of the deer to her real form, the cunning fox. I wanted it to be a subtle nod to the sides that the Queen shows, and the disguises she uses. Two foxlike skulls are fibreglass, and the two deer are EVA foam.
