My name is Cassie, I'm 22 years old and I live in Utah.
My Dream would to build a Dinosaur costume. I’ve been working on this dream of mine as of recent and wanted to take my first creation to Thanksgiving Point : Museum of Ancient Life, where I volunteer my time at. But what would be awesome is to bump it up to the next level, that is to build a team of those willing to ware different Dinosaur costumes that I would make, and travel around from museum to museum to educate children on respect and discipline to preserve these natural resources.
Recently while volunteering at Thanksgiving Point, a child was so curious about fossils they broke a piece off one of the exhibits. And that fossil can be put back but never replaced. Many cases of this have been known to occur. If we didn’t have the knowledge or respect for these relics of time we wouldn’t know how awesome Dinosaurs where.
If that is not possible the least I would love to do with this dream is to go entertain children that have physical, or mental handicaps or children with cancer. The smiles received and the laughter heard from children that can be blessed with a few moments of happiness in their life when wearing a costume makes all work, time, and frustration building a costume worth while.
And I have proven I have the skills to build awesome costumes. Such as Bower that can be found as an instructable. This costume has brought much joy to many local people and those that have viewed it on the internet, of all ages and nationalities. If I could do that with future costume projects I could die happy.
The thumbnail image is my orginal drawing plan of what I want to make within this year. But with funding I could make more costumes then just a Triceratops. By going to Museums with these costumes it would help out their funding to keep open and draw in crowds. Not only that but would also help fundraisers for organizations such as Charlie's Dinosaur, Angel's Hands Foundation, and many more willing to see these creations at events.
These costumes would be child friendly as much as possible but also have realistic details.
