Faced a few setbacks with the lighting. Its hard for the LEDs to light up so I had to rewire them again. Furthermore, the pressure sensor’s spoilt on the day itself so I have to edit the threshold for the sensor in my coding on Arduino to zero and make the lights blink together instead.   Initial concept: Light’s supposed… Read more →

Make Up

Make up wise, I’m going for a dramatic look with strong, harsh contouring to highlight the cheekbone and jawline. Disney’s Maleficent truly inspire my make up direction, conjuring up a dark and sombre look for a dystopian feel. The day before: Test run of the make up after rehearsal to see whether it fits the theme. Read more →

And since I… Read more →

Process: Dress

As the dress will sag once filled with water, Galina suggested making a strap to hold it in place. Hence, I used leftover plastic to create a wavy strap that mimics the movement of flowing water. In fact, the other plastic pieces are created by cutting from leftover plastics or by fusing smaller pieces of plastics together. This is in line… Read more →

Prototype: Cones

Fusing plastic for the cones in order to create a waterproof lining and then wrapping it with satin. However, after experimenting with fused plastic, including the types of plastic used and amount of heat exerted on the plastic (which affects how much air bubbles will be trapped inside; more air bubbles give a more crocodile-like skin texture at the expense… Read more →

Concept 1 WIP: Rain Repeller

Recently there has been unpredictable weather patterns in Singapore (some sources claim to be an effect of global warming) and I foresee a more unpredictable pattern in the future. To combat this, an idea came to mind: combining a rain coat with everyday wear. The head cover is inspired by the nautilus shell, but deconstructed to make the different segments of… Read more →
