Message from the Designer
When thinking of designs for Mister E of Imagination: Tales of Edgar Allan Poe I wanted to focus on the overall feeling of the play; which is quite dark. While at the same time keep some of the classic period of which Poe is associated with. I chose a black and white palate to accomplish this and then found pieces in each costume to add red. This was for a bold splash of an accent color and served as symbolism for the tales of death and love that Poe wrote in his lifetime.
Coming from more scenic work and painting, it was interesting going into my first costume design and beginning a whole new process of idea developing. I learned so much with the help of my professors that I will take with me and apply to other designs that I hope to do in the future!
