Die Verwandlung (the Metamorphosis) is a play by Franz Kafka in which Gregore, a travelling salesman transforms into a beetle. read it, it's unusual but very good. for a while i dabbled in costume design, here is my costume for Gregore. all the knitting was done by hand (and took bloody ages):
here are some photos of a dress i made entirely out of paper (napkins, doilies, pick and mix bags and cupcake cases). i found this really challenging as paper is really hard to work with as pins rip it...in fact EVERYTHING rips it.
i really wish this dress was functional. what do you think?
