Birmingham Revealed: Lou Wooster

Costume Design & Construction



This was a fun one. I'd recently had the opportunity to work with Ellise Mayor in Ghost Writer for Birmingham Festival Theater, when she was commissioned to write and perform a one-woman-show for the Birmingham Revealed series at Vulcan Park and Museum. My "day job" is at Vulcan, so the stars aligned and I was comissioned to design and create her costume. The catch? Create a 1908 gown worthy of a nortorious madam in mourning for her sister, out of three 1980's prom and bridesmaids dresses. Challenge accepted! Pattern designed, drafted and constructed by MarciAgnes.
