Mini Top Hats

  • Designed & Built by Kelly Anne Johns
  • The Merchant by Plaitus 
  • George Mason University 2013

I create these top for THE MERCHANT which I costume designed at George Mason University. They have a buckram base that was hand sewn together with millinery wire used at the brim and top crown to add stability. They were then covered in black fabric and adornments were added to compliment each other. A combination of horse hair and elastic strap was use to secure them to the actors heads
