Halloween Costumes – The Moon, Doug Jaeger, and The Sun,  Kristin Sloan.

For halloween 2013 we got inspired by Georges Méliès,  who was a French illusionist and filmmaker famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema. He is most famous for his film A Trip to the Moon from 1902 and the Impossible Voyage from 1904.  So for costumes we decide to go as the Sun and the Moon. We used cotton stuffing from pillows and some wire to make cloud structures on our shoulders, with print outs spray mounted to foam core, complete with face make-up and a 3d printed rocket that was attached to my eye.
