Sample text

However, I never forget that costume design is always the main subject to express. My theory is that characteristic bodies with interesting and perhaps exaggerated features can make the costumes even more interesting, eye-catching, elegant, practical, and meaningful. I often use abstract stick figures to establish the poses for my costume designs (see Figures 1-30 and 1-31). I work without live models, from my own imagination. I use tapered boxes or irregular shapes, sticks, and little circles to indicate the basic bone structure of the figures.

Costume designers should create suitable body frames for characters that will accent garments for that period and produce believable characters that will enhance the costume design. Head-to-toe figures in three-quarter-view poses are usually the best for presenting expressive costumes because they show front, side, and partial-back views. Figures 1-61 through 1-69 are interpretations of my understanding of historical periods. They are based upon historical sources and references to frescoes, paintings, and sculptures.

Each time period in fashion holds its own appreciation of the beautiful. Women wore corsets throughout the centuries to flatten or accentuate the breasts, cinch waists, or pad shoulders; today, women get breast implants for a pair of full, large breasts. Trends affect men as well. In the past, men wore corsets, cinched their waists, and padded their shoulders, chests, and calves to achieve aesthetic standards; today, men go to gyms to exercise and gain muscle mass to meet today’s standard of beauty—a muscular and healthy appearance.
