Loam - Terrariums

These terrariums were made for Loam, a eco-comedy about plants taking over the human world.

Olivia Jameson, designed three terrariums to be used as set pieces. Using her designs – and the frames made by the props department – I used a mixture of fake plants to create the small magical arrangements seen inside.

Troilus and Cressida - Snake Mascot

This snake puppet was made as part of a mascot costume for an American high school-inspired adapatation of Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida.

Designed by Tish Mantripp, the snake was made from beautiful Lycra fabric, and is intended to be worn as a harness under a suit.

I absolutely love working backstage. It was something I had never done before arriving at BOVTS and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Madi Barncoat, BA Costume Student
