This is my hypothetical design for Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s Dream in my costume design class. I set it in the 1920’s America, and my fairies are set in a circus setting that has inspiration from 1920’s toys. I omitted the Mechanicals from this post because I plan to redo them as I was unhappy with some of how the designs turned out. They are all in watercolor.
