BIP passion project
A conceptualization created for the International Thespian Society Nebraska State Convention Costume Design Competition. This competition required the competitor to produce five character renderings based upon a selection of dramatic literature. The competitor was charged with developing an understanding of costume design principles, an understanding of the artistic and practical constraints which impact design, an understanding of the relationship of costume design to a unifying concept, the ability to carry out research into style, period, locale, and genre of the play, and the ability to present and explain design choices.
Components of the competition included: a one-page design statement, thematic examination, historic research, design of a unifying concept, understanding of script limitations, consideration of budgetary constraints, illustration of preliminary sketches, and development of a complete costume plot (showing who wears what, when).
