Mischievous Puck

I made a sleeve for puck to wear on which ever arm he chooses.  We had some costuming issues with him.  Had to change his outfit at the last second as nothing would fit him.  This was originally planned to go with a different outfit but Puck was to slender to wear the other one.  So now it goes with this one.  I used grommets also it could be taken on and off easily and  it is lined with felt to make it comfortable to wear and not be itchy.    I did some hand embroidery, blanket stitching around the felt leaves at the top to hold the two layers together and to add a little more detail with shades of green to that area.  Also if the wrist band got twisted on the arm the arm could still bend at the elbow and not be uncomfortable.

I had originally planned more feathers but decided they would get damaged so close to the body on a moving part like an arm.  So I saved them for Oberon King of the Faries's crown (which was the hardest thing for me to make).  Yes I am saving that for last as with his wings the second hardest thing I made for this play.

Titania Queen of the Faries

I didn't have much to do with this costume all I had to do was add feathers to the crown.  But it did add a little something to the overall look.  Up-close you can see the band that holds the feathers but from a distance like the audience not noticeable so it should be fine.  I used mono-filament threads so you can't see how it is stitched to the crown.  My oldest daughter is wearing it in the top two photos.

Here is Titania She had her wings already so this is her whole costume minus shoes, hair and makeup.


Here is Peasblossom in Greens and whites.  I was running out of greens and whites at this point in the game I would have liked it to have more flowers.

This is Peasblossom ( once again this was fitting day so they are not in complete costume.  So please ignore the lack of wings and the addition of shoes and socks.

Mustard Seed

Here is Mustard Seed another fairy form A Mid-summer Nights Dream.  This one has a little bee hiding in her bonnet and a few butterflies too.  I didn't get a decent picture of Mustard Seed so I will have to post one at a later date.

This looks weird from this angle but it actually doesn't look flat in the middle in real life the butterfly was turned weird in this picture so I fixed that since.

This is why I have not posted much as of late I have been working on this project for my kids school.  My children's school is putting on a Shakespeare play.  Well actually they put one on every year, this year it is Mid summer nights dream.  I got recruited to make parts of some of the costumes.  So I figured I would show the parts I did till you see all of the pieces I have worked on.  This set is Cob web she is one of the fairies in the play.

This is Cobweb. We had to do a fitting so I snapped some pictures on that day so they are not fully dressing in costume meaning we are missing wings and they still have bits of school attire on but you get the idea.

This one made by my middle daughter

My oldest daughter loves origami.  Over the years I have jumped over many little pieces of folded paper.  In the last 1 1/2 to 2 years the other daughters have started to love origami and kirigami.  Which means more little pieces of paper to jump over.
Two smaller balls made by my oldest daughter

This weekend there big thing they made with little pieces of paper took lots of little pieces.  These are the end results of their work.
