Project 2

Working in groups of 2,  select a work (book/novel, film, television show, play, etc.) and select a historical time period to re-imagine the story. Research that time period thoroughly, and each member of your group will design a historically accurate costume for one or two of the characters based on the historical period you’ve selected. Use laptops for references and research.

When presenting your design to the class, be sure to introduce the character/s, show images of the original character’s costume design, discuss the choice you made for the time period, and show examples of the references you used to design the costumes.
