The job that the class took on was developing a line of costumes made from recycled cardboard. This cardboard then had to be able to slot together for assembly and taken apart for storage purposes. The costume would be ideal for people who wanted to make an easy costume while not spending much money for children to use under minimal supervision.
I had to design and create a marine themed costume, made completely out of recycled cardboard using slotted construction with a flat pack costume design.
1. Middle school aged child must be able to wear this costume
2. Marine themed
3. Flat pack, slotted construction
1. 100% cardboard, no tape, no glue, no permanent fasteners
2. Should be able to wear as Halloween costume or play costume
