DESIGN COSTUMES FOR PLAYCRAFT LIVE

In this video SeaPeeKay meets Katrina Lindsay who designed the costumes for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child before inviting you to have a go at designing costumes yourself.

THE CHALLENGE

We want you to help design the costumes for characters Liam and Maddie from our new play by TimeRiders author Alex Scarrow. Here’s a little bit about them to help you get started:

Liam O’Connor

16 Years old. Brown Hair. He’s Irish with some freckles. Strong Brow. Funny, caring and very well mannered. Takes great care of his appearance. Born 1896. Was on the Titanic.

Maddie

Long Brown Hair. American. Glasses. Feisty. Nerdy, Control Freak. Prim but likes to be a bit crazy sometimes to let others think she’s cool. Team Leader and Computer Hacker. Born 1992.

COSTUME DESIGNS

You can create your costume designs any way that you want. Here’s some suggestons:

  • Draw a costume on paper and share it on Instagram
  • Create a real costume and share photos or videos on Facebook or YouTube
  • Use an online skin designer, such as the ones listed on this page, and share the skin image on Twitter

We’ll share the best on Playcraft Live’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube channel, and if they’re really awesome, we’ll show the whole world at the end of the live performance on 14 October!
