Water Stealers is an interactive DVD-Film project by Kade Mendelowitz, being produced by Theatre UAF for launch May 1, 2004. I have been designing and making some of the costumes for this low budget space opera (pilots & aliens) using mainly stuff we have lying around our Dept.
Top class alien, who is getting lots of water.(Made from reused suit from The Bacchae) Mid Level Alien, getting some water.(Made from reused suit from The Bacchae)Low level alien pilot, dying from lack of water.
These tests showed us that no pattern of paint would make the faces sufficiently “plant-looking” for video, so my costume shop manager Lorraine Pettit devised latex leaves that could be glued to the face to make the features more alien.
