I had a project that I thought was due on Friday and I didn't start on it, but it was moved up [or would it be down] to tomorrow and I didn't start. It was on Ancient Greece Clothing and I only had 2 hours to do it, considering I had 2 huge exams to study for tomorrow. So with extreme stress, aspirin, and a little ambitious expectations, I made this:

I had to make up a pattern for them, because I couldn't find all my Barbie's clothes somewhere up in my parent's attic.






Thats the female version, the dress is called the ionic peplos and I had to have pins shown because they fastened clothing with pins.




the back^



This is the male version, obviously. Its your basic tunic, but Greek style. The shoes were made from extra corkboard I had.The background is my posterboard I had to create with it.

I think it's elegant and the barbies is even transferable to this century..
I think the sheer fabric is a good subtle choice

I saw the image on the front page and I thought "Damn, that girl has a figure like Barbie's!" Then I realized that it actually was Barbie. Out of curiosity, what's your historical basis for the seam/flare near Barbie's hem? I've never seen that before, but I'd love to use it if I can back it up with research to show to a director.

Thanks for the links. Actually, I'm in the stage business. I'm a theatrical costume designer, though I wouldn't turn down a movie if it was offered to me.  Grin
