Pierrot, My New Project

Yes, another lovely personage from "Commedia Dell' Arte" This is my favorite! In Italian theater his name is Pedrolino, but I like French  "Pierrot" better. Pierrot is a gentle, dreamy, slightly melancholic character. He is sweet and kind boy, younger brother of silly and hyperactive Arlecchinno.
I thought about creating him for a long time, and finally got to it. My Pierrot is very young, almost a child. Traditionally, this part was played by the youngest actors.

Pierrot is already fully assembled, and I am ready to create his costume.  I intend to follow the tradition of the costume of course, but create my own interpreation.
