Interested in designing your own original costume, but not sure where to start? Or have you tried but been unhappy with the results? Join me as I share how I approach designing original concepts as a not-professional-artist-or-fashion-designer. I’ll include tips and solutions for those of us that are still working on our illustration skills, and also explain terms I’ve come across in my research over the years.

For this project I’ll be designing a high fashion version of the Vultpex, the salt-fox from The Last Jedi (2017), but I encourage you to use these methods to create your own designs based on what inspires you, be it rocks, Pokemon or mythological figures. Also if you do use the design-a-long I would love to see what you come up with!
