Exercise 2: Costumes

Begin thinking about what your character will wear.

Exercise 2: Costumes

Before building your character in detail it’s helpful to create a rough costume of what they will look like. Keep in mind you can use your whole body for this costume...
or just a part of your body such as your hand.
Activity: Imagine you need to go to a costume party as your character. What would you wear?
  • Demonstrate how your character moves using a simple costume.
  • Try to create different emotions using your costume (sad, happy, curious, scared...)

    I think my character will wear very shiny dresses and the dress is very long and full of glitter and sparkle.

    My character is Red Riding Hood. I'm pretty sure everyone knows what she wears, but I'm still going to say. She would wear a bright red cape and have a short dress. The dress would be kind of old fashioned, but not fully. It would have a plaited skirt and have a white top. The top would have one of those x things over the chest. She would hold a cute little basket with cakes in it. The basket would be brownish and pale. Since I have to also have the grandma, I'll tell that one, too. Since the wolf steals most of her clothes, the grandma would just have a plain white dress.

    Very flowy, light fabrics that can move with ease. Lots of white, blue and red. Maybe a dress that is ripped and tattered
