Repurpose & Assemble: What Makes A Costume?
Not only can a costume can say a million things including (but not limited to) era, emotion, class and aesthetic, but there are a million ways to address and adorn the physical form. Making a costume from scratch can be costly, that's why Rosie Rimjob finds much to value in the practice of repurposing. Second-hand three piece suites, and prom and wedding dresses are just a few options available that provide us with more than enough fabric to work with at a fraction of the cost of bulk fabrics.
This is a hands on workshop for those of us interested in the practice of making costumes while spending as little money as possible. Rimjob will take you through esteemed methods of repurposing, and explore just how versatile the realm of trashion can be. The practice of repurposing is valuable to all of us, wether you're an experienced seamstress or brand new to the idea of sewing; come prepared for some serious crafting! Find the tackiest, biggest, most overdone article of clothing possible (for under $10), and you'll be set for a crafternoon you'll never forget.
This event will be held at Engine (265 Main St, Biddeford)
