2016 USITT Ohio Valley Section

Award of Recognition
2016 OISTAT World Costume Festival

This costume piece was created for the 2016 OISTAT World Costume Festival via an Ohio University Grad Costume Crafts class. I designed and created the Bobcat Skull Headdress in collaboration with my group, Glamour Bigfoot. Our inspiration words were "Primal, Brown, Metallic, and Grounded". I am the one modeling the piece.

The Ezekiel Award was for my work on the headdress. The OISTAT Award was for the entire ensemble.
