  • 1. HONK! PORTFOLIO Hannah Wells
  • 2. Table of Contest Costumes Make-Up Set Painting Advertisement Program Design
  • 3. Costumes For costumes I had to design five different outfits. The costumes that I designed were for Henrietta, Lowbutt, Queenie, Maggie Pie, and the Bullfrog. The costumes had to be fairly simple to give the audience subtle hints about what the character was supposed to be. For example, Queenie was the lazy, domesticated house cat, but we didn’t give her cat ears and a tail. Instead we gave her a tight black dress with a breakaway skirt.

  • 5. Henrietta When I read about Henreitta’s character, I imagined a fifties housewife look. In the sketch that I drew of her, she had a brown, full skirt that was about knee length with lots of frills on the costume. She also had a fancy apron which, again, had lots of frills. Back to Costumes
  • 6. Bullfrog For the Bullfrog’s costume I first imagined Charlie Chaplin with his baggy pants, big clunky shoes, and his bowler hat. Then someone had the suggestion of adding sequins and big swimming googles to his look. I also wanted the colors of his costume to be sort of a swampy greens. Back to Costumes
  • 7. Lowbutt When I was thinking about how I should design Lowbutts dress, I drew a picture of a chicken so that I could incorporate certain traits into her costume. For example, a hen has a very feathery tail which I incorporated into the costume by adding a tutu made of tulle to the underneath of the dress. Lowbutt also had curlers in her hair because she is supposed to be a lazy, domesticated hen, so I thought that it would give her the appearance of being lazy. Back to Costumes
  • 8. Maggie Pie For Maggie Pie’s costume (who is a magpie) she was supposed to look like a tailored reporter. So I found a suit at goodwill and died it purple. I also gave her an old fashioned, feathery hat with a veil. Another thing that I added to her costume was a pair of fishnet tights to giver her the appearance of being sort of snobby. Back to Costumes
  • 9. Queenie The character of Queenie was a domesticated house cat who was very lazy. So at first when I sketched her costume out I thought I would have her wearing sweats, but then I discussed my ideas with the director and she said that she liked my second idea better, which was having Queenie look very snobby. So her costume ended up being a very tight, skimpy black dress with a breakaway skirt. Back to Costumes
  • 10. Basic Make-up Make-Up Alice Limoges The makeup jobs that I did was for Alice Limoges who played one of the ducklings and Jenna Hill who played Henrietta. For Alice I did a Tools basic makeup job with natural we colorings. So I used foundation, used low-lite, high-light, blush, and eyeliner with a touch of lipstick.
  • 11. Make-up: Henrieta The makeup that I used for the character of Henrieta were darker shades of pink This is the bright ...and this is for the blush and a crimson pink blush that I the crimson r e d l i p s t i c k f o r a 5 0 ’s used... lipstick. housewife look. Back to Contents
  • 12. Set Painting Painting the set is what I helped the most with. I helped paint the lily pads, the underwater roll-ins, and the marsh roll-ins. I was in charge of the “Cattail Island” and the Hills.
  • 13. Set Painting: The Hills My first design. With the Hills it was a large process. First the lead set designer had a design for the hills that she and the assistant designers tried. They ended up not liking that idea and put me in charge of the hills. So I came up with a few designs of my own. After I made a drawing of what I wanted My second them to look like, my friends and I design. started painting over the first coat. Finally it was the week of the performance and we still didn’t have the hills done so the lead designer ended up stepping in and creating a new design that was more simple.

  • 15. Advertisement The advertising piece that I worked on was the Honk! sign that we put outside the school. I worked with Taylor Fairfield and Linsey Puls. The first thing that we did in making the sign was to project the poster design onto a piece of wood. We then traced the image with pencil. After that we painted the sign according to what Vanessa Bemis (the designer for the poster) had chosen for colors. Back to Contents
  • 16. Program Design The design that we had for the program was what I submitted for the Honk! poster contest. My design didn’t win for the poster, but it did get to be on the cover of the programs which was also very exciting. The drawing that I created was of Ugly in the middle of a road with all of the other farm animals crowding around, glaring at him. In the back round of the poster was a gray sky that looked as if it were about to rain. Back to Contents
