Sets and Costume for the Ohio State Lottery Costume. The image on the right is one of the mock up I made first. It only hade 5 points and the director thought this may not be enough. So with only 5 days to build the cactus I had to re-mock up the costume with 8 points. The good news is I had figured out the pattern and technique already to build the thing. Let us say, however, that although I did finish the project on time and was the hit of the set (the clients were extremely happy), it was a very short time in which to achieve this project. A word to the wise, at least two weks is required to make a costume such as this. I knew this but decided to take it on as they really needed it to make the commercial, and the commercial dates were already set.
