Since the last post of some of my costume drawings, the Faust opera has been played in Paris. Here is an image and a video – I hope to get more good quality photos later.
In the meantime I have been working on more plays – drawing hundreds of costumes based on design instructions by Yan Tax. Time to show some more of them.
These below are for “Katia Kabanova“. The opera plays in Russia at the end of the 19th century (1860 in the original play, and 1890 in this version) – with more historically accurate designs. Never thought I would ever get interested in fashion… but researching this was fun. One excellent resource for costumes is the blog of the FIDM Cotume Museum. Full of high quality photos and detailed historical descriptions. So I tried to stay as accurate as possible, even on the details.
