Dr Who: Jabe final design ideas
Foliage based design, again drawing from artworks, photographs, and collections of autumnal leaves.
Chosen design, adapted and modified for practical, and material variations
Dr Who Costume: Jabe
Designs, and Construction process images
Dr Who Costume: Lute
The aim with Lute was to re-create the look of original costume as closely as possible, using the materials available to me.
The colour way was changed from gold to silver, to better suit the fabric that was found for the jacket.
The bottom was made as a pair of Japanese hakama, which i felt would better suit the tabi to be worn, and make it more of a warrior style, in place of a skirt.

Jacket: Cotton with metallic brocade, Tailors canvas, heavily stiffened millinery felt, plastic boning, polyester lining

Dr Who costume: Jabe
With this costume I wanted to re-design the the character. While keeping some of the original costume elements. I felt Jabe held a regal/ diplomatic position, and as she is the Ambassador of the Forest of Cheem , I wanted her dress to reference her origins more than the original design does. She is a strong character but is always elegant.,
