    Hi everyone!

    We are doing She Kills Monsters.  We have a fight choreographer, weapons, and all monsters taken care of EXCEPT Tiamat.  Any leads on sales/rentals/awesome ideas?

    Thanks!
    Matt

    We found  dragon patterns- almost oragammi style on line and constructed 5 dragon heads out of heavy cardboard. Painted and detailed them. Mounted them on poles. So, essentially giant puppets. Very effective cohoreography. Worked great.

    Hi Matt--
    SKM is a fabulous and incredible show! Our best and most controversial show ever!!! I had a parent who tried to get me fired because of it-- it was INCREDIBLE and sooooo very worthwhile!!!! We staged in in April 2019. For Tiamat, we did as Scott Keys mentions, found patterns and created heads from cardboard, then decorated them using the text as our guide. Instead of posting them on poles, our Tiamat was made of the 5 monsters Agnes the AssHatted kills: Kaliope, Lillith, Orcus, Steve, and of course, Tilly. (We color coordinated the costumes of those characters with their Tiamat head.) We wanted to show that Agnes had to "kill" the expectations both good and bad that were keeping her average.   We also had an incredible Beholder costume and the gelatinous cube was fun to make too!!  I have pictures, notes, and costumes for sale if you are interested! Break legs!!!

    Sonoma State University in Northern California has an amazing one that we rented, created by a woman who worked with the Muppets.  It was pretty expensive, and I don't know if it travels, but you should also check out productions in your area to see if there's one nearby.
