Collaboration with Special Effects Makeup Artist Robyn Westmoreland and Photographer Charlotte Wise
Robyn Westmoreland has commissioned me to design Greek mythology costumes for a film inspired photo-shoot. I will be expected to produce 3 costumes for characters Medusa, Hades and Athena. Robyn’s concept for dress is the contemporary interpretation of Greek mythology and she will be providing professional prosthetics makeup for the shoot surrounding this theme. The costumes should symbolise a modern adaptation however clearly show what character it is for.
Overall I am extremely pleased with all final costumes. I believe I have represented Athena, Hades and Medusa to the best of my ability. The project was challenging, enjoyable and I believe I have learnt a lot from it. From this experience I have furthered my abilities and knowledge in textiles, fabrics, techniques and working as part of a collaborative team to produce a cohesive range of costumes.
