The Velvet Sky Produced by Theatre Vertigo, 2013. (Portland) All photos ©2013 Gary Norman Demon/Policeman This character appears suddenly, in dream fashion. To facilitate the dreamlike quick change, I chose to attach the mask with the hat. The Sandman I built on images in the text to make a raptor-like visage for the Sandman. The entire look and movement of the character was workshopped by the actor, costume designer, director and myself.
