After looking through Prof Galina’s book on textures and fabrics, I got inspired and did a sketch of my costume. I really like the look of burnt plastic meshed together so I decided to incorporate that element in my costume design.
On Thursday, I decided to work with the top part of the costume which is made completely out of duct tape. I started out by making strips before joining them together. I started out with coloured tape since I wanted to reserve the black tape for wrapping the whole piece. Prof Galina also showed me how to make cuts to shape the top to fit my body better. After making the cut, I would overlap the piece and pin it before taping it to create a pop-out effect.
Things to do for next week:
- Test out electronics on Monday
- Finish the duct tape top on Monday
- Iron out plastic on Tuesday
