Participants choose to make a costume in one of four categories: historical, ethnic/cultural, theatrical, or special interest. Goals include understanding clothing and its significance, and applying new knowledge to planning and making a costume. Projects are evaluated on the Seven Clues to a Total Look and on fit, construction, design, accessories, authenticity, and knowledge of the costume’s history. This advanced project is for teens and may be repeated, however, a different category of “costumes” must be selected. © 1995.
