THE VICTORIAN FREAK SHOW

This is a series of  costumes for original characters; a group of freak show performers from the late 1870s. Each performer has a background story and inner struggles. My aim was to create designs which are a “second skin” for the characters. In other words, it was important for me to design clothes that look glamorous, but at the same time expose the characters’ day-to-day challenges and difficulties.

The designs refer to the historical silhouette, but take liberties that help one understand the characters better. 

Most of my inspiration for the designs came from English 1870's undergarments, music halls and travelling fairs.
