I have 1 month until school starts. I am to begin my second and final year, and we are doing our Major Work which is the biggest project in the entire course. We will be working on it all year as an independent study. This means that we also have to choose our design pretty much when we begin the year. I have been looking at sketches, painting, animations etc and it is such a hard choice... Even though we still have a month it would be nice to have an idea of what kind of costume I would like to make. And I'm so not sure!
It should be a challenge or something that we haven't done before. It should also be something that represents us or the kind of work that we like to do or want to do. I think my problem right now is that I want to do so many different things. I don't think that I have a specific area of costume that I only want to be in, because I am still so interested in all of them.
SO, looking at aaaaaall of the pictures that I have gathered on Pinterest(200) I realized that I had to pick the ones that I keep coming back to and put them somewhere else.
The pairs interests me a lot. Somehow I think the story on the stage and the purpose of the costume is much better and easier to tell when there is two. Not sure if that i true though. I am quite interested in all of them and I know that this is not going to be the last garment that we create!!! These pictures are just all so different and represent their own different area of costume.
I think one thing that I am trying to find in a design is some kind of authenticity. But i still don't know in what form and if I am leaning more to the fantasy kind of costume or the historic or if I maybe want to make dance costumes!! It still helps a lot seeing these pictures without all the other ones on Pinterest even thought one of these might not be the one I choose.
This is just all my messed up thoughts that are probably not going to help me, but anyways, it is what school is for me right now - even though we haven't started yet!!!
