Oberon and Puck costume sketch

Oberon and Puck costume sketch for The Dream designed by David Walker (1977). 

The Dream features magical characters such as Puck, a mischievous sprite, and Oberon, King of Fairyland. Walker’s costume designs highlighted their mythical personalities through shimmering sequins, ethereal gauze and a nature-inspired colour palette.
