This one was actually not for fun. I was assigned to create costumes for a production of the greek play 'Lysistrata' (a play in which the women go on strike, and refuse to do 'anything' for the men of the city, until they get treated better.... sort of a womens lib local 101) This was the result.

Good show. I designed the set for it in a class in undergrad. As a fellow costume designer, I'd just like to say that this is a very interesting presentation. Rather than using croakies or more traditional figure representations, you chose to put them on fractured statues. Not your nortmal costume design fare, and I think it works really well.2

Thanks Brian. I was hoping to emphisis the ancient greek feel by using one of the art forms associated with that era... it just seemed to make sense to use the fractured statues.

I am hoping that Dennis, the designer reads this and cares to respond to me. I am a lecturer is costume design in the UK and ma working on a publication on costume and am interested in designs for Greek plays, which I have at last found here with Dennis's work.

Pleas e respond if you wuld be interested in allowing possible publiaation of your work with attitional commentary on your design concepts for your work.

Am hoping ot hear from you!!!!!

I like the designs, not that I know anything of costume design. It seems odd that the womens version has more shading on the statue than the dress though. Still, I find them both very appealing.

I'm a theatre student, and I remember reading that play! These are really good design drawings. Do you work in the theatre? I guess I should read your bio before I go asking questions like that. It was insane. Our professor, who is this old guy with a British accent, leaves suddenly in the middle of the lecture about this play and comes back in with this cardboard tube with a punching glove on the end stuffed in his pants, wearing a greek mask. We nearly died.
