ARMOUR SUIT FOR GREASEBALL
Show: Starlight Express
Set Designer: John Napier
Costume: Parsons-Meares, Ltd.
Size: 7' x 2'6" x 22'
The Greaseball costume from Starlight Express was inspired by early diesel and
electric railroad engines. All these items were first sculpted in clay or other media from
detailed research and then vacuum-formed in Kydex. Costume Armour worked in conjunction with Parsons-Meares
costume shop on this project. Notice the extraordinary detail incorporated into these pieces while keeping them lightweight and safe to wear.
