In this costume and makeup design course I hope to develop the ability to be able to design fitting costumes and makeup for a given character. I don't have any experience in designing costumes or makeup, so I hope to develop those skills along the way. Since I've been doing theater for more than half of my life, I have a decent idea of how people develop ideas for costumes that reflect the personality of a character. The extent of my abilities in makeup is basic stage makeup (foundation, blush, eyeliner, mascara, lips), but I can not do anything more complicated than that. I hope to become better at makeup so that I can do more in the future.
