7 weeks to go…

Your research is completed, you have come up with some concepts (design ideas…)

NEXT: Get yourself a plastic Barbie type doll and start modeling your design ideas on it (as shown by Fifi at our workshop).
Now is the time to collect and test materials and see how you can put them together.
Remember that your costume will need to be sturdy and able to be worn and displayed many times. Your model must be able to move freely in it. It must not be too heavy or large!

We have had many requests for displays of your work, including a planned exhibition at Te Manawa (more on that exciting news later).
