Pocket Skirt

A whimsical costuming piece for the Arisia speculative fiction convention, 2020. I wanted to create something that others could interact with, so I designed a 6-paneled skirt embellished with pockets made from scrap fabrics. Each pocket contained a small treasure (wands, tiny books, jewelry, etc.) that people could “pick” out of my pockets. I think the adults had more fun with it than the kids!

I also constructed a sturdy hoop skirt (with PVC pipe hoops) and a satin underskirt to support the heavy panels.
