Design Statement

· Dark & Strange
· Funny & Cute
· Obviously Fake
This is a story of black comedy which is talking about a group of strange people living in a strange town. In the town are full of scandals and gossips which can hurt or even kill someone. We can see that dark and strange are full of this town. But on the other hand, the characters in the play enjoy their gossip life very much. They look very energetic, happy, funny and cute. All characters show their distorted personality obviously which we can see from their characters’ name, lines, acting style, action and movement.
· Gothic fashion
· Mix and match with some colorful elements
· Make Up & Headpiece
Gothic fashion is a clothing style marked by conspicuously dark, mysterious, exotic, and complex features. According to the gothic fashion, black and grey is the main colour tone of the costume. But this still is a funny and happy comedy, therefore, I will try to mix with some colourful elements. Mainly I will use the make up and headpiece to create a strange and funny town style and the atmosphere for the story. All characters’ personality can be seen obviously from their outlook, make up and the obviously fake headpiece.
