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.(5 votes)
- 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.(3 votes)
