SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS

Project

Shaping the parade with laser cut acrylic costumes. We were approached by the wonderful crew at Housewives On Fire to create some spectacular outfits for the 2015 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Process

When creating the exceptional 1.2m x .6m butterfly wings, we wanted to find a material that was both strong and flexible enough to withstand the movement over the large surface area. We settled on a 3mm plywood which was then sprayed with gold glitter for added fabulousness.

Result

Over 3,000 individually laser cut pieces came together to form the outfits for the 100 people on the float. The acrylic was painted gold and heat moulded by HoF to fit snugly around the bodies of the parade-goers. Happy Mardi Gras Sydney!
