Headpiece created for The Queen of Hearts in
Alice's Adventures Underground
Directed and Written by: Les Enfants Terribles
Performed at: The Vaults
Designed by: Samuel Wyer
I was commissioned to create a headpiece for The Queen of Hearts for Les Enfants Terribles's adaptions of Lewis Caroll's famous novel. It was to be worn by 5 different performers and withstand many performances over a 6 month period. It had to be light, durable and have a strong visual impact.

Here are some photos of the construction and making process. Several prototypes were made in order to get the exact shape and fit. Once the base was completed there was a lot of hand stitching and fabric manipulation to get the Headpiece just right.
