Artist Designs Costumes By Using Non-Recyclable Materials

Artist, hairdresser, sculptor, and a costume designer Suzanne Jongmans recreates the looks of women, men, and children from the 15th, 16th, and 17th century. Her photographs resemble paintings of old masters such as Rogier Van der Weyden, Rembrandt, and Hans Holbein.

When creating her costumes, the Netherlands-based photographer uses non-recyclable materials like foam and bubble wrap. “Most people throw away foam rubber, but like a child I see the diamond in a stone,” the artist wrote on her personal website.

Jongmans shares her work on her social media accounts, where she has over 9k followers in total. Scroll down and check out some of her designs. Do you have a favorite?
