Based on 14 years of research and experiment with plastics and various non-traditional materials, this book supplies information to designers and interpreters on specialized techniques for use in costumes for theatre, film and TV.

This reference delivers many exciting new choices to designers and craftspeople, with the bonus of improved safety, maintenance, comfort for the wearer and visual effects for the audience. The author has worked and lectured in costume for many years; she was Professor of Costume Design at the University of California, Los Angeles; and her research has taken her throughout Europe and Asia..
