His Mechanical Heart by TormentedArtifacts His Mechanical Heart by TormentedArtifacts
Part of a set of costume accessories I've created for Seattle Shakespeare Company's steampunk-flavored production of The Tempest, (see here [link] for info on the production itself) in this case, the entire chest/waist harness setup.

This piece is an original creation for the character of Prospero- mixed media- original leather pieces (the kidney and heart backings) the brass scrap art device on the kidney plate, and the polymer resin heart, with mixed media accents. I'm really happy with how this one turned out, and if nothing else, it's definitely going to be an inspiration on a forthcoming piece.

Oh, no worries- this was me working on someone else's very general concept to begin with as it was. And I certainly don't mind other people getting inspired by similar stuff.

It's an awesome piece, I love steampunk. However, since you're going for a mechanical heart, it should sit a little lower on the person wearing it, to be anatomicly correct and all. The heart is located roughly behind and slightly to the right of the left nipple. Just a little pointer for when you use it in the play. I would totally go if it weren't a 17 hour drive for me to get to seattle..

Actually the concept was as a backup heart- as in life support gear, not a replacement for the existing organic bits. Believe me, as a former EMT, I'm fairly familiar with just where the heart resides at in the human body.

Besides that, when the hell does anatomical literalism and theatre have to synch up perfectly?

That said, though, glad you liked the concept at the very least.

Oh yes. All the designs for this show were a blast to do. Though the annoying part is, the one piece I had the most fun putting together is the one they're not using.

I really like the triple-lock belt especially. A truly stunning piece.

what a super concept!
is the hospital gown-looking undergarment part of the costume?

Yes, it is- no I have no idea why- I only got brought in for the accessory creation work- I didn't get to see any of what went on for the rest of the costuming concept.
