With hours of hand-sewing and creative crafting, Carolina’s graduate costume production students are working their way onto a platform even bigger than the stage.
The Washington, D.C.-based Museum of Science Fiction was in its early developmental stages when subcommittee chair Steve Dreyer was tasked with finding precise costume replicas from famous science-fiction feature films and television shows. Dreyer and the museum found what they needed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“We want the best and we want experts in the field to develop these things,“ Dreyer said. “When I found the faculty at UNC and saw their qualifications and what they brought to it… it was a win-win.”
