Ombre-dyed pink spandex dress with acrylic paint treatment for The University of Oklahoma's 2018 production of "I Rise," and original work inspired by Maya Angelou and her seminal poem "And Still I Rise."

I designed these costumes, and was responsible for the complete stitching construction and subsequent painting of this dress, as well as for the paint treatment for several more dresses (out of 23 total).
