Costume Design and Associated Crafts
I am a Costume Design graduate, based in London. I enjoy both designing and interpretation; however my main interest is interpreting a design into a three-dimensional costume. Finer details transform/ bring to life a costume and its effectiveness of character portrayal; as a result I aspire to work in the film and television industry in the future. There is not one specific era which excites me most, as the work made throughout my degree has ranged from period costume, to modern, to dystopian. As shown through the majority of my work, while at PCA, a developed love for dyeing and printing has also evolved; I would like to explore this more throughout my career.
As a team we were set a live brief to make puppet skins for the actors at Marjon University. Time management was vital for having them ready in time for rehearsals. During their show we worked backstage, applying their puppet makeup and maintaining their costumes ready for the following night. Individually we interpreted an image given from the Theatre Royal. The end result was an 18th century bodice and skirt made to a professional standard, ready to be used in their celebrations of the Mayflower’s anniversary.
