Following the designs of Michael Pavelka this Donkey headdress was made for the character Bottom for an operatic version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Royal College of Music in London. As the performance was set in the underground world of Weimar Berlin, the headdress is made from wire with fake barbs. It is built upon a wicket keepers mask and a neck pice was added to help support the weight.
