Make-up Box Prototype
April 18, 2012 § Leave a comment
The Optimist make up still makes me feel like a superhero, but a secret one. I found that even when I forgot I was wearing it, people looked at me more, and I felt as though they expected me to be the sort of person that interacts with strangers. It made it easier to behave that way, since the social boundaries shifted. Realistically, other people could wear superhero make up better than yellow capes in public. They can relate to the idea better if they can imagine doing it. So, I made a make up box and make up guide for The Optimist make up.
I thought that a thick card prototype might work but the net kept falling apart. So I modelled in foamboard.
Here I was trying make up configurations.
I knew I wanted a ribbon to make the lid steady, but I wasn’t sure how to do it.
This bit was tricky, the first time I tried to put on the snakeprint film it didn’t align right so I had to redo it, which took another hour or so. The grooves are covered in fabric tape.
