I am a freelance Costumier and have recently graduated from University, I interpret characters from texts and scripts and create my designs. This project includes the characters; Sabriel and Chlorr of the Mask from the book series “The Old Kingdom” written by Garth Nix, this is a fantasy story including epic battles and magic duels. Sabriel is your typical hero, and her costume is intended to represent a heroin in a none sexualised manner that is typical of a woman in fantasy. Chlorr of the Mask is a creature of death who is fighting a constant battle to remain in life, the bars surrounding her act as extra barriers never truly allowing her to have control over her body and movements. To produce these costumes, I used a range of techniques including corsetry, quilting, prop making and leather work. They are specifically made to fit the actor and the performance requirements.
Laurie was in the top 5 artists selected for the Young Cumbrian Artist of the Year 2017.
