Alice's Talking Flowers

For my next act I've decided to create the most amazing flower costume yet. After designing PIPPIN last year, I have a garage full of unused fake flowers that were bought to make gorgeous burlesque costumes for the production but were never used. The sexy rendition of "White Rabbit" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals creates the best narrative for an onstage performance by one of Alice's talking flowers. The costume will consist of a large head piece, flower covered bodice and skirt - very eastern influence with a belly dancing touch. The piece-de-resistance will be that the skirt unravels into a flower garland to show the bits all audience members want to see - a c-string underneath! This is the furthest I've ever gone, and I'm feeling quite comfortable about it because I'll have full body paint done by the amazing Nick Plummer (MUA). Nick and I have been friends for years and have worked together closely on many productions (including PIPPIN) as costume designer and assistant. With the costume by Missing James and the make-up by Nick Plummer, I don't think Alice's flowers will have ever looked so good!
