Elphaba - Wicked
2007 - 2010
Originally this costume started as an exercise as part of my costume construction course, to drape a bodice on the stand. I chose to use a Victorian bodice design that would be appropriate for a Wicked Witch, mainly to give the work a second life once the exercise was completed. However, due to unforseen circumstances, I ended up converting the exercise into the full semester's project, including detailed research into the musical Wicked, and making a full replica of Elphaba's bodice.
The skirt was made at a later date, after graduation, to complete the costume.
