Second mockup of Tentacles
I also developed several of the large fish headdresses used in the Under the Sea number. The bases were sculpted with steel wire and then skinned with net and handpainted fabrics.

Costume Designer, Tatiana Noginova, wanted the Eel headdress to undulate as the performer moved across the stage. I built hinges into each of the sections
so that it could articulate left and right.
