Once again Designer Rich Hamson created a magical costume plot that contained fun challenges for a costume craftsperson. The Centaur structure began with heat-bending plastic rods for general shape, covered by foam and fabrics. The hind legs were made to move along with the actor's legs. The Medusa headdress had snakes of jointed wood, which moved as the actor's head moved. The Cyclops costume was wearing an altered, re-purposed guard uniform that was created originally for Jesus Christ Superstar at The Chanhassen. Recycling and reusing items, such as the Cyclops costume, makes these challenges even more interesting.
Our disco-ball girls wore plastic globe-like forms that were covered in sequined squares. Their headdresses were jeweled hoods with motorized, revolving mini-flashlights on top. Huge sequined earrings, sequin covered shoes and silver leggings completed the look.
