Angel Wings 

Angels In America

Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Collaborated with the costume department, stage ops, actors, and other props artisans to develop a mechanism to move the wings. Attended fittings and constructed shoulder straps, taking into account comfort, strength, and flight harness position. Later, helped to modify the back plate and shoulder straps to accommodate different actors wearing the wings.
