St Patricks Day Parade, Belfast 2019

The opportunity to work with Beat Carnival was excellent developmentally. On top of whats shown in these images I altered many other items, a bulk of 25 tabbards and a full leotard (which was not photographed due to a significant mistake in another area of the costume made by a colleague). This all improved my ability of work quickly and efficiently, as well as introducing me to producing a bulk of identical items. The leprechaun, which I designed along side designer Lli Griffiths, was a really successful piece. It reintroduced me to working with plastazote and opened my eyes to the world of dressing hats. The jacket tied in excellently with the hat creating a more 360 degree appeal to the costume and making him further stand out in the crowd: perfect for a street performance.
