For Oceanic she created four outfits – an octopus dress, a jellyfish dress with blue lights around the edge of it, a sea anemone dress and a coral on a rock dress. This was set to the music of The Foals 'Big,big love' (click on link below to listen to this)

|Maryanne modelling the Déjà vu costume
For Déjà vu she created four identical costumes based on an ephemeral version of the existentialist movies
‘The Matrix’and ‘Sucker Punch’. The green computer matrix writing on the girls legs along with the reappearance of the black cat on each costume inspires the ‘Wait, haven’t we see this costume before?’ question over and over again. The white rabbit appears in both the headpieces and as a tattoo on the left shoulder as per the film inviting the audience to follow the costume down the rabbit hole of déjà vu. This was appropriately set to the music ‘White Rabbit’ from the movie ‘Sucker Punch’(click on link below to listen to this music). The finishing touch to the costumes was created by giving the models an eerily surreal quality by using white contact lenses.

Next year both Torsten and Savannah will be entering CAD so I'm looking forward to months of creative work infusing the house!
