This thesis project focuses on the design and technology process of the University of Virginia’s production of She Kills Monsters. Through this production, I was able to successfully demonstrate the collaboration of Costume design and technology that has been the core focus of my studies at UVA. I thought about the construction of the costumes first, design second, and allowed the movement and fight choreography to guide me in the design and construction of the costume elements. I also made use of new technologies in the field in order to fabricate elements of the costumes and to communicate the design elements to the shops. The final design was a integrative and visual success that supported the theory of my approach and demonstrated my ability to work both as a costume designer and technologist.
