Carnival Costume

Carnival DesignCarnival CostumeCarnival Costume Closeup

This Costume was designed by Colin Spalding who I met at the UK Centre of Carnival Arts. I learnt a lot from looking at completed costumes of his as well as his work in progress. I made a backpack style frame and a headdress. From these I could attatch fibreglass reinforced plastic rods and feathers. Working on this project inspired me to travel to Cuba where I could attend a real Caribbean carnival.
