I've just started my Higher School Certificate (HSC) course, Design And Technology of year 12 - anyone who understands Australian Education in NSW will know that this is a huge deal. I'm required to create something... anything, really. I've chose to design a real life outfit for Nozdormu, the Keeper of Time from the MMORP World of Warcraft; I know, I've probably bitten off more than I can chew, but here are some screen shots of what the outfit will look like... I have the shoulder worked out, so I don't have to worry about that part and the hair isn't an issue as I can get long brown hair wigs and style them without hassle. As for the rest of the costume I'm really at square -1. I was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on where to start in making this animate costume come to life? I have until July next year to make it and a $450 budget to keep under. Any information people can give me on methods of sketching and constructing templates and material to use is incredible appreciated and their assistance will be documented in my Project Design Portfolio. Yay. I want the material to look decent, and the final product to make the markers look at it and say, "Wow. That's amazing." It also has to be wearable (obviously) as I'll be using it for Cosplay. Thank you.
