|This is the dress Elphaba wears from the very beginning of Act II. The idea behind the design is that she's patched up her old "Wicked Witch" dress during her years on the run from the Gale Force and the Wizard, hence the rags and patches that make up the bodice and sleeves. This look is finished off with a loose cape made from two ragged pieces of sheer fabric.|
Elphaba has much darker makeup in Act II to enhance her cheekbones and eyes, giving her a much more sultry look than in Act I.
I'll be wearing this costume without the pointed hat, as she doesn't wear it in the "No Good Deed" scene.
