Projects Past: Part 2 (Wearable Art '05)

In 2005 my garment for the wearable art awards was inspired by the Papua New Guinean fire dancers and their large animal masks.

This entry was my own interpretation of this design.

The mask (the wearer looked out of the mesh just above the mandibles)

In this pic I am working out the frame for the inspect arms that would be added.

These pictures were taken just before it was completed. The flax grass around the stomach was replaced with longer flax, and a few other tweaks were made.

This picture was taken back stage just after the show and show the finished garment. This entry won it's section, and you can see me holding the trophy i recieved.
