As a costume designer, Anderson has approached this project
considering the innate character/shape of the dinosaur and
relating it to interesting and unique qualities of Pittsburgh.
She believes the presentation of these dinosaurs is inherently
theatrical, therefore they should catch the eye of the audience/population,
amuse them and give them something to think about. In addition
to film, television and stage work, Anderson has often done
mascots and fantasy costumes. She claims that painting dinosaurs
is very similar, and easier since the model doesn't fidget
bright presentation includes painting and 3D pieces. The hat,
wig bow, and boot tops are vinyl, the wig is brown rope glued
on in strands, the trim metallic silver braid, all topped
off with buttons. T. rex would have also looked lovely
in this outfit, based on the Washington portrait!
