All of the roping and beading on Mufasa’s ‘corset’ is laid out individually and done by hand.

Each Mufasa cape requires 12 yds. of fabric. Each length is cut into narrow strips, which are finished along each long edge, and then reassembled to create his signature striped cape.

At some points during each performance, Mufasa wears different harnesses. To accommodate these changes within the show,  every Mufasa costume has 11 zippers!
