AN ELIZABETHAN LOOK

It took three hardy women to lift this 80-pound costume onto the mannequin for the "Curtain Call" theatrical design exhibit at New York's Lincoln Center in 2009. And it came with four pages of instructions. The costume was designed by Linda Cho and based on Hilliard's famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth I. The costume was worn by a man in "Passion Play," done at Arena Stage in Washington, DC.
