The Crown of Isis

This picture was taken after 6 weeks in rehearsal/performance. It held up pretty well!

I thought everyone would like to see what I made this September. Among other things: a headdress for our Antony & Cleopatra!

Sorry about the blurriness, but the back was my favorite.

It’s constructed on a covered foss-shape base. The folded, golden pieces are thermagauze, a thin thermaplastic that molds and bends with heat. The thermagauze is covered in a textured spray paint, gilded with (faux) gold leaf., and then slightly painted into to add depth and age.

An in-progress pic. Before the “wings” were added to the front and sides.

The roughest of drafts. A very in-progress mock up made with a thicker thermaplastic, oaktag and brown paper. Believe it or not, this wasn’t even the very first attempt!
