The cloak is made from very rough felt, and is a simple rectangular construction that can be draped backwards or forwards across the shoulders. I have used the rabbit fur that I bought from eBay to bulk up the shoulders and to give a regal, impressive effect to the costume.
My name is Siobhan O'Dwyer, and I am a third year BA (Hons) Technical Arts and Special Effects student at Wimbledon College of Art.
This blog documents my journey towards creating a lifesize realistic waxwork of Boudica, Queen of the Iceni Tribe in the early first century AD.
Here you will find both my research processes and practical processes throughout the year, as well as numerous gallery and museum visits, as well as some conceptual art and general thoughts.
If you have any enquiries or questions regarding my work, feel free to email me. Happy reading!
