I have enjoyed sewing and creating for many years, I am able to create garments for a wide range of...

My character for this was Odin the Grey bearded God of wisdom the highest and oldest Norse God, The production is for a TV show where Odin would set challenges for the participants amongst the woodland. I created the costume showing Odin in his original form of black cloak and large hood which hangs over his missing eye. The runes believed to have been found by Odin after sacrificing himself and one of his eyes by hanging from the Yggdrasil tree for nine days. The roots of the tree are reflected in the lower part of the costume with textile paints and the runes symbols are sewn into the fur overlay and feathered ends are to represent the ravens which would sit on his shoulders. A pattern magic belt was created to emphasise his magical powers within Norse Mythology.

My character is Eliza Austen inspired from Jane Austen’s letters it was said that Jane used her as inspiration for some of her characters in her books and was referred to as the “outlandish cousin”. This production would be a drama based on stories told through the letters between Eliza and Jane.
I chose to create a Regency gown with silk Spencer jacket focusing on decorative techniques my inspiration was taken from Regency fashion plates of the 19th century. The Rouleaux trim creates a 3 dimensional work of art with hand embroidery and beads to compliment the Spencer and represent her quirky character and delicate features. The silk Spencer embellished with decorative trims is influenced by the military presence of that time.

My character is Luna from the story “The girl who drank the Moon” by Kelly Barnhill, a magical fairy tale about the challenges of growing up. Combining creative pattern cutting and airbrushing techniques, the peak shapes represent the birds that always fly around Luna. The formations around the bodice expresses Luna gaining control of her emotions as she grows. Green was chosen as the main colour living in the natural surrounding of the forest with blue and silver being the colours of her magic which she leaves a trail of where ever she goes.
