After only having had two weeks to design, buy the fabric/supplies, and sew this to completion, IT IS FINISHED.
This is my final project for my Theatre Costuming 101 class (my first class in my actual major!!). We were asked to take the classic PLAY of Sleeping Beauty (not the Disney film!!) and design all the costumes in it (one for each character). They all had to be colorful, since it's a children's play. But the catch- was that they had to be historically accurate to one time period/civilization. We had to pick out of a hat, and I got the AZTECS. We were then asked to take one of the costumes we designed and MAKE it to wear ourselves and give our final presentation.
This is my version of Sleeping Beauty, done Aztec style!! (Yes, I just HAD to choose the princess. XD)
I chose complementary colors for all the costumes, but I wanted the princess and the prince to stand out the most, so they're literally in the most eye blinding ones. I'm standing outside in these photos on an overcast day, so you can imagine how bright it'll be in direct sunlight or stage lights!
The whole costume is handmade, from the buttons all the way to the gold jewelry. The brown is leather that's been hand dyed, all based off of a pair of sandals I already owned. The gold has all been sprayed on so it all matched, but it's all still handmade. All the patterns used to make this costume were handmade by me as well (I make all my own patterns). If anyone would like these patterns, I have no qualms with sharing my knowledge!~/
Anyways, ENJOY!!! I hope I get an A!!! P.S. For those of you who go "WTF" because you KNOW I have super short hair- YES, that is a WIG. We theatre majors have so many on us they're falling from the eaves, ya know?
