Romeo and Juliet/Cymbeline Virginia Shakespeare Festival Asst. Designer/Cutter
Director: Steven Breese Costume Design: Patricia M. Wesp Scenic Design: George Hillow Lighting Design: Lynne Hartman Photography: Christianne Bakewell
Both shows were cut using altered and from scratch patterns. Many of the costumes for the Capulet's ball in Romeo and Juliet were created from original patterns as well as altering existing pieces created the year before for All's Well That Ends Well. These ball costumes were inspired by the masque designs of Indego Jones.
The leather doublets and suede tunics for the armies in Cymbeline were customized to each actor from a common pattern created from other reference materials.
