Today I began the initial planning for my costume in order to make it as accurate as possible- as this will save time and fabric. I began by taking the measurements of the two models who will be wearing my costume. Using these measurements I proceeded create my own fabric patterns on large sheets of paper. I tested out my initial patterns by creating a rough of my costume out of paper. This made it more obvious to me that I had taken the right measurements and that my patterns were accurate. Taking my templates I began to create my costume. The jumpsuit I'm creating for my female character is the most complex of the two I therefore used a sewing machine for the majority of this section.
