Adaptive Radiation – Costume Designs

This show is about magic, or rather regaining the magic, that we all lose while struggling against the system and straining to be authentic. The costumes are specifically geared towards representing people of different walks of life while still maintaining a functional/utilitarian view of the needs for some very special effects in this show.
