Princess Kate and Baby George Illusion Costume
I made a larger than life version of Kate Middelton’s head and then built the costume around me as baby George. The reactions of people seeing a 9ft royal princess in heels made it all worthwhile (I got some size 12 heels).
The hardest part was figuring out how to make the maternity dress to fit me standing up and also support the foam-core head behind. I ended up wearing a slimline back and strapping the Kate body around my shoulders. I topped it off with some royal costume jewelry including a crown for Prince George, and the late Diana’s sapphire ring.
This costume always turns heads, people firstly don’t know where to look and then it dawns on them the totality of the costume. Lots of surprise and awe from it, and the larger than life scale knocks people out. I was photographed all night and in the morning my feet were killing me!
