Cyrano de Bergerac

The gown below was created from this sketching of a 17th Century gown for the play, Cyrano de Bergerac,
set in the 1640s and performed by a group of homeschooled youth in central Texas.
It is the story of a cadet in the French Army, a noted dualist and gifted poet,
who has the distinction of having a rather large nose!



Lack of time prohibited us from completing all the details in the sketch; but it was such a fun project!
















And in the words of Cyrano himself:

'Tis well known, a big nose is indicative
Of a soul affable, and kind, and courteous,
Liberal, brave, just like myself, and such
As you can never dare to dream yourself...'
