Chinese Lion

I have designed and handcrafted this Prop Costume for the annual Lunar New Year's Lion Dance at My Neighbours the Dumplings Restaurant. It was built following the traditional techniques: curly cane armature and Papier-maché. The body is created simply by the fabrication of a decorated drape and two trousers to be worn by the dancers.
