Today is the day that I handed in my dissertation (3 days before deadline may I add*smug face*). Two and a half years ago, when I started uni, I was dreading having to even write a 2000 word essay, so you could not possibly imagine how I felt having to write a 5000 word dissertation! (I know that’s not a lot compared to most but it is a lot for me). But I did it… I BLOODY DID IT!!!!!
Another brief that i have is a work related project, this will be a live project at Preston Hall, a victorian themed museum that has a working street. I have been asked to make a costume for ether a working person for one of the shops or a person passing through. This costume must be historically accurate and of a professional standard because it will hopefully be used on key days during the summer and used for a photo shoot, so will be seen by the public.
There were many types of costumes to chose from such as a toy maker, blacksmith, police officer, tea lady and many more. Because i am making a Mrs. Lovett costume for my personal project i have decided to make a barber costume for this one. This will mean that they will look great together when fished and shown in the end of year show.
I am yet to find a image that i am happy with for the barber costume, so i have decided to mix a few images together to create a costume that i like, and is still historically accurate. This will consist of a white winged collar shirt, waistcoat and high waisted trousers.
