When you think of fantasy characters, it's easy to equate them with their costume. The infamous red shirts in Star Trek, Dracula's high-collared cape, Little Red Riding Hood's hood, Cinderella's glass slippers. Costume is so important in designing fantasy characters and worlds, that often a costume piece can come to represent an entire story or even franchise. Throughout this class, we will look at historical influence in fashion, some fabulous existing examples of costume design, and how...
- Students will understand how costume affects our perception of a character. - Students will have basic fashion history knowledge in order to draw inspiration for their fantasy designs. - Students will feel confident drawing fantasy costumes.
I've been a costume designer for film for four years, often in the fantasy genre. I've been illustrating fantasy costumes as a hobbyist since high school and have a solid working knowledge of costume construction and costume history.
Students will be creating their own designs in this class and some of that work will need to be done outside of class time. Everyone works at a different pace, so the time spent outside of class will depend on the individual.
You will need - - A good dose of creativity and a ready-to-learn attitude! - Some drawing supplies: a pencil, eraser, and paper, or digital workspace. - Coloring tools. (Whatever you like best; colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic paint, markers, crayons, etc.)
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I feel that a fantasy costume class that doesn't address the very revealing and unrealistic armor often designed for female characters would be incomplete. We will touch on this and discuss why it might be problematic and what it's supposed to tell us about those characters. Please feel free to contact me if you're uncomfortable with this.
