Costume Photos

And Robin shall restore amends

I jest for Oberon

And as I am an honest Puck

Gentle lover remedy

Night and silence, who is there?

I am that merry wanderer of the night

What hempen homespuns have we swaggering here?

Sometimes lurk I in a gossips bowl

How now, spirit?

By fountain clear

Lord, what fools these mortals be!

Description
Thou speak'st aright;
I am that merry wanderer of the night.
I jest to Oberon and make him smile
(Act ii., Scene i.)

This is an original design of one of my most favourite Shakespeare characters ever. Since I first learned about MSND, I alwayed wanted to play Puck-I even auditioned twice for the part (and failed).
Is it odd that I dont see Puck as a male character? I've always imagined Puck to be androdgynous (spelling 8D), or even quite feminine, so thats the kind of thing I'm going for here I guess.

I found an old Link costume in my wardrobe and felt bad about leaving it to gather dust, so armed with the green velvet tunic and a sketch, I turned it into a hobgoblin'a attire~ I personally love the wig c: I saw it in a hairdressers window and knew it was perfect for what I wanted to do (Mum bought it me as a going-back-to-uni gift).
I'm practising at make-up and binding with this so apologies if both arent that great. I'm doing my best though so thats what really matters ^^

What a lovely interpretation! Puck is my favourite from Midsummer. Your background and poses are perfect for it!

Practise practise~ (Posted 6th September 2010)

While the costume part is finished (complete with purple flower) I'm still trying out different ways of doin the make-up for when I do a shoot of this.
Still practicing with binding. With varying success XD
