This is the completed shadow puppet for our lead character of Maria in my upcoming Xibalba film. The story is inspired by the Mexican legend of La Llorona (The Weeping Woman), with backdrops comprised from TTV photos of Chicago. I’m collaborating with Connie Toebe (www.ConnieToebe.com) who is fabricating the puppets. We go into production in May.
Maria’s skirt is made from a vintage corset cover, and the flower decor comes from the same corset. Previously, I collaborated with Connie on “Through the Cobweb Forest” – www.cobwebforest.com
