Costume designer Kate Cusack always puts a theatrical flair into the costumes she creates, but what makes her work different are the clever ways she uses materials. Cusack takes unusual everyday materials and transforms them into something unexpected and dramatic.

It is the costume designer’s fascination with mounds of excess that is expressed so well in these photos. Yards of plastic wrap have been fashioned into mile-high wigs and fantasy period dresses.

The talented designer is also known for her inventive line of jewelry fashioned from zippers. It's the cleverness in Cusack's use of materials that shows the brains behind each design.
