Wig Master

Director: Polly Firestone-Walker

Scenic Design: Abbey Hogan

Costume Design: Jacqueline Heimel 

Lighting Design: Jennifer "Z" Zornow

I was in charge of the creation and styling of all wigs for the production, including the creation of 12ft Rapunzel braid.

Rapunzel Braid

This Rapunzel wig had a base short wig with a removable 12ft braid.

I sewed several packs of crepe hair onto a base of twill ribbons. Each strand was 12ft long and rigged to the ceiling so it would not drag as I sewed the hair.

Process of braiding the strands together

I mounted the braid onto a removable clip. This creates the illusion of the braid being "cut" onstage.

The entire braid was covered with hairnets, ribbons, and finally I sewed flowers as the finishing step.

Base wig for when Rapunzel's hair is "cut". The braid piece was then clipped into the base wig.
