Wearable Arts 2017.
This year my group chose to study Diwali it is a Hindu festival celebrated all over the world but mainly in India. The festival is all about celebrating light over darkness (good over evil) and it is also honoring Lakshmi the goddess of fortune and prosperity, it also marks the start of the financial year in India. We chose this festival because the was many candle it seemed bright there was rangoli (dyed rice patterns) and we could tie that into the costume.
To make this we started with a plastic bag for the top and paper for the bottoms we layered each with paper-mache then paint and glitter here and there. to tie the pieces together we plaited pieces of string and looped it through some holes like a shoe lace.
I think that it went fairly well and we put in a good effort what went as expected was probably the top and the string. If I had to change anything it would probably be the style and the materials and we would have started earlier (we started a bit late.)
