Jungal Book Bagheera by Mathionn Jungal Book Bagheera by Mathionn
Here is Bagheera, Mowgli's true protector. In Kipling's novel Bagheera is a male and a father figure but here we decided to cast a female and be a mother, just like Akela. She is sleek and smooth, i.e. lots of spandex.

I like the idea of Bagheera being a female, she brings a strong female role and also another mother figure when Mowgli isn't with Raksha or Messua.

Hi! thanks for all the comments! it was really nice of you to take the time to look at them <3 In the play adaptation these costumes were used for, the wolf mother's name was Akela, and the hyenas didn't get individual names :/ Hathi the elephant did have a name though, i remember that (it was a long time ago now oh boy) Kaa in the play was pretty neutral and much less threatening than in the disney movie, and I did have a mowgli painting and i'm not sure why it's not on here at all, i thought i'd had it posted! I can't find the good/edited version of the painting anymore (an assistant messed up the background of it, alas) but here's a link to my other portfolio where it is in all its hideous orange glory if you want ahaha lorrainespringer.wix.com/emily… thanks for lookin'!

haha the script gets a little thin in places but thats where acting comes in! we did a movement based version where we cut a lot of lines in lieu of physical storytelling. its really fun.
