                     WEARABLE ARTS 

For the past  term we have been working on wearable arts.  If you don't  know what wearable arts is, its when you make a costume out of random things you can find around the place. We got to work in groups so I worked with Jacob and rikki-lee. We had  a few  problems coming up with the idea but we eventually got it and started making the costume and I think it turned out pretty good.  We made it out of mainly an old singlet and newspaper. 
Here is the finished costume.  (oh yeah its a dress for Rikki-lee)
