Native American Blackfoot

Native American Blackfoot Cosplay Theatrical 01 Velveteena Leigh
This costume is based upon the story of the Wolf Man from the Native American Blackfoot tribe, based in North America/Southern Canada. After creating 4 separate designs of the main character in each stage of the story, I decided to create the design representing a Native American Medicine Man/Story Teller recanting the tale to his audience. It was a great challenge to work with these fabrics – leather, chamois and fur, and required me to do a lot of research not only into the best way to work with these fabrics, but also into the traditional techniques and patterns that represented the Blackfoot Tribe specifically, as I was keen to treat this project as sensitively as I could. Ultimately I am extremely pleased with the final product.
