“Sometimes I get inspired just by garbage,” says Machine Dazzle, the artist/costume designer tapped to create the look of Las Vegas’ new Opium show.
Speaking during a break in the wardrobe shop he’s created behind the Opium stage at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Rose. Rabbit. Lie., Dazzle chats with me about jumpsuits, ear plugs, space theater, and what inspires his designs.
It’s my first piece for The Cosmopolitan’s “52 Stories” site, and you can read it here.
Below is a pic I snapped of the Opium cast when they arrived at The Cosmopolitan in February. That’s Dazzle on the far left, in the gown made of silverware, with the giant petals.
This’ll be an interesting show.
