This is me posing with a couple Medici guys...It was a project I did several years ago for a UCLA graduates' thesis project. She contacted me to create the wardrobe for several life size wax figures she was using in a museum installation about the Medici family of Renaissance Italy. The figures were litaerlly wax heads and hands on wire and newspaper armatures. I then padded out the bodies, added or styled hair, researched the dress of the period, shopped fabrics and accessories, patterned and constructed the clothing(including hats and shoes). There was a total of 4 adults and 1 child, and 4 busts that needed hats.
