Dracula – student theatre

2 years ago, during my university time, I joined the student theatre group as shared costume designer.

That years play was “Dracula” – a humorus story about the infamous transylvanian count and his “friends”.

The first step as the costumer desiger was to do some research of the original story.

vlad_tepes_big-x01Using this well known portrait from the 15th century, of the “original” Dracula – Count Dracul, as inspiration.

12I drew a design sketch, and got to work.

Unfortanly I had already moved back to my old town when the play premiered, so I never got the chanse to help finish or even watch it. But I’m still pretty proud of the result.
