So this week's assignment is to make two different mood boards, both inspired by a specific historical figures.
We were suppose to choose someone from over 100 years ago, I was torn between three characters.
- Aimee Crocker
- The Little Mermaid
In the end, I think the wild and reckless Princess of Sacramento, Aimee Crocker, will be the best figure for this project. The gold and railroad heiress lived in the Victorian era and played by no one's rules. She wore pants, sported tattoos and a love for Buddha, married five times (once to a prince), collected snakes, traveled the world, and never regretted a minute of it.
The first mood board we're to create is the true-to-history costume, what the character would actually wear. The second board is our modern interpretation.
Here are my two mood boards made on polyvore.com.
If you were charged with designing clothes for a historical figure, both accurate historical representations and a modern revamp, who would you choose?
