CHALLENGE 4: 攻擊星座
This is Project CBRunway. You're either in or you're out. Who will be CBR’s next big comic character designer?
Good morning, designers. Welcome back to the runway.
In Chinese astrology the zodiac of twelve animal signs represents twelve different types of personality. The zodiac traditionally begins with the sign of the Rat, and there are many stories about the Origins of the Chinese Zodiac which explain why this is so. In Chinese astrology the animal signs assigned by year represent what others perceive you as being or how you present yourself.
For your next challenge you must design a superhero or supervillain costume based on a sign of the Chinese zodiac.
HOWEVER, a sign may only be chosen once. Each sign has been randomly assigned a number between (1) and (12). Designers will choose their sign by posting their pick of a number between (1) and (12), upon which the sign they've picked will be posted and added to the list below. Numbers may be picked only once, on a first come, first served basis.
You will be judged on originality and creativity, and how well your costume represents the sign you choose without being too literal. Your outfit may consist of natural or synthetic materials.
All submissions should include a written description of the costume, explaining, to the best of your ability, material, functionality, design inspiration, etc. As you are designing a costume you should not provide any type of character biography or origin.
