4 element costumes in use

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

The big final in the 4 elements project was a couple of weeks ago. Children from several kindergartens were gathered at the Vestnorske theatre-center to celebrate with a big party. So much fun to see all the costumes I made in use!

Hook´s hooks

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Did you think Hook only had one hook?!? Oh, no! He has several hooks, each with it´s own  purpose. Two of them are presented here. Made by sawing off the stem of plastic glasses, drilling a hole at the bottom/top. Glueing on the “tool” of desire, in this case a salad-fork in brass and a “whipper” […]

How to sew an emblem

Monday, November 28th, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I […]

The pirate-flag

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

For Hook´s ship we need a proper pirate flag! I know they are for sale, printed pirate-flags very cheaply. But I didn´t want a pre-fabricated dime-a-dozen black-and-white pirate flag. I wanted a handmade one, in softer colors, with softer edges. So I used a meter of plain, black cotton Then I made myself a “brush” […]

Accessories for warriors and diplomats

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

It´s the accessories that makes the outfit. At least to a certain degree. Peter Pan includes a number of characters, and as designer I am lucky enough to play around with how they will look. The pirates, for instance, are from all corners of the world. For one of them I made this leather shoulder-armor. […]

streaming the opera

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Saturday was the world premiere of Ghost Particles, an opera created in 20 countries all over the world. Coordinating the pre-recorded films and not the least all the live-streamings take a quick hand and a cool head. Luckily we were in good hands at TV Haugaland! Tor Håkon got us all smoothly through the delays […]

Today is the world premiere! At 1:30 PM GMT the Global Science Opera “Ghost Particles” will be a reality!! Above is the trailer for the opera. Below is the poster with original artwork by Michael Hoch, a particle-physisits working at Cern I was lucky enough to meet in August. I´ll be in the studio today, […]

The peachy nightgown

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Wendy´s dress for the Peter Pan show is in the making. I wanted to move away from the white, and the pale blue is already used by Disney. So I thought I´d use peach, a warm color for a warm character. 4 meters of crepe de chine silk and a roll of peach-colored lace later… […]

Pajamas!

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Pajama-day! In Peter Pan, both of Wendy´s brothers, John and Michael are wearing pajamas a the play. They are woken up and then fly off to Neverland. In order to make their pajamas a bit special, I choose fabric that might tell something about who they are and what they´re interested in. So I visited […]
