Beautiful, Intricate COSTUME Designs and Materials of Cirque du Soleil | Making-of OVO Wardrobe


This show is inspired
from insects, so we have a ladybug,
scarabs and crickets. The cricket legs make
it look more real, as well as the mitex
that they use. It’s that kind of shiny fabric, so it looks very
similar to the insect, as well as the dragonfly, he has the wings that really
look like the insect. It’s pretty amazing! The costumes are
handmade in Montreal and we custom-make
them for each artist. We are a traveling
wardrobe shop, where we travel with our
own sewing machines, all of our own equipment, all of our backup
equipment that we need, all of our backup costumes, and we take care of all the costumes
that are currently in the show, which involves washing them, getting them back in
the road case for the artist, and making sure that
they are in good repair. The wardrobe workshop travels
with around 14 road cases, with I would say 1,000
costumes pieces, hat pieces and shoes included. The costumes are
amazingly durable. They’re predominantly Lycra;
they are very stretchy. We just throw them in the washing
machine and let them drip dry.
