An introduction to both traditional and new techniques of making Costume props and accessories for Stage and Media use. COSTUME ACCESSORIES works through a cross-section of practical projects, with Histories, making instructions, and order-of-works, supported with photographs and drawings throughout. Examples include canes and hats, crowns and lorgnettes, and very much more - all with the object of exercising a wide variety of techniques and approaches to the craft. Methods include: Millinery; leather-work; glove making; metal-work; jewellery work; bead-work; crochet; embroidery; 3D printing; CNC routing; chainmaille. Much of the work may be familiar, such as leather-work - but the book introduces techniques less often seen in theatre, which are now very much more available and practical to use. The changing world of the internet enables us to buy much more - but also the extraordinary (affordable) technology of small CNC machines enables us to make things in new, different ways as well.
