Fashion: Wizard of Oz Reimagined

The Dublin-based team "Harmless Creatures" (Sadhbh Doherty and Clare Geraghty) created these reimagined costumes for the cast of the classic children’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

This collection of costumes is our personal project and a labour of love. They were brought to life between different jobs and projects we were working on and are the result of much planning, many late nights and an awful lot of grid systems. Each costume took over 40 hours to create using unusual materials and techniques that you won’t see every day of the week.


The Scarecrow is made from rows and rows of hay, the Tin Man is made from hand shredded card and the Lion is made from 20cm strips of VHS tape. All are assembled like a suit of armour, protection against a world where everyone else has the brains, the heart or the courage.
