From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Incog-neato!
Oscar-winner Eiki Oshioka — designer of the wild costumes for Cirque du Soleil's "Verekai" — creates another kind of show that must go on.

Quote:
As costume designer for the new Cirque du Soleil show Varekai, in Philadelphia through Oct. 20, the Oscar-winning, Tony-nominated artist takes the circus' penchant for the eye-popping to a whole new level.

There are outrageous animals (are they lizards? birds?) and a squad of otherwordly characters with horns, light bulbs or brilliantly colored knobs on their heads. She puts a troupe of youthful Chinese acrobats into weirdly bulbous blue suits, and outfits a team of high-flying Russians in costumes that appear to be aflame.
MORE...

When you get to the newspaper article - look at the designer's picture and you will see 'more photos' click on that to see the truly extraordinary costumes.

I love this designer. So creative.

She won the Oscar for Coppola's "Dracula" if you want to view some of her excellent work without buying a ticket to Verekai. I particularly love the red armor worn by the title character in the flashback scenes.
