You heard us right. Take a look at the fantastic creations of
Christa, aka Zuss, that are not only fantastic apparel from this
humble material, but also the bizarrely beautiful costumes for Romeo and Juliet Drink the Young Wine.
From the press: "Made completely from bicycle and moped innertubes, sometimes
augmented with beads, Zuss’s gothic punk creations transcend the idea of
clothing. Each piece is a unique, handcrafted, highly sculptural piece
of wearable art. Even if you could never imagine yourself donning a
garment that makes Mad Max look tame, it’s worth browsing through their
appropriately-titled “Gallery” just to marvel at the creativity and yes,
beauty of their pieces."
Since our version already features the hero of Gotham, Zuss's designs successfully add another layer of Gothic flavor to our production.
While we're busy recycling Shakespeare with a creative passion, Zuss is busy doing the same for our costumes! :)
