Abstract

This paper on designing circus performers’ costume, has been written based on a play in which animals costumes are used instead of the real animals in order to protect them. In this paper costume of five main characters has been designed creatively. They are: The Turtle, the about to extinct Salamander, the Ant, the plant and the circus chief. They have been characterized through costume designing. The circus chief character because of his dominant presence has been designed based on the circus games style and the plant character is a symbol of growth while the Ant completely evokes the image of knowledge. Water and fire are the essential elements of the circus therefore, in this descriptive-experimental paper Titanium Silicate and Zirconium have been used in order for the costumes to be both fire and water resistant enough to provide the performers with better comfort.
