i have an image of a character stuck in my mind, in much the same way a song would be stuck. i found an old soccer patch on the floor last night and started imagining what i could possibly do with it, besides throwing it back into the shoebox with the rest of them. i eventually came up with a great costume piece and this as-yet-unnamed character who i imagined would wear it.
the piece is a black hooded sweatshirt with a zipper and pockets on either side. there would be a patch on the front left chest – the patch would have the character’s insignia or clan symbol, etc. on the back would be a bigger version of the insignia (or a more detailed version, not sure yet) that looks to be torn from a t-shirt and crudely sewn on. the final part of the sweatshirt is a feather attached to the right side of the hood. i first imagined it in a native american style, with a leather strap and some beads or arrowheads along with the feather.
i’m still working on who this character might be, but i’m a little excited to see where i can go with it. and i’m pretty sure i’ll make that sweatshirt at some point in the very near future.
