Ella - Anime Costume Making

To someone who has used a sewing machine less than ten times in a lifetime, the words “adrenaline” and “sewing” may not seem to go hand in hand. But when asked about her favorite part of her senior project, Ella immediately began describing the rush she gets from her work. “Yes, it is tedious to create a character in physical form when they have never gotten past two dimensions, but the time and effort poured into every little detail just makes the end product all the more exciting.” Throughout the whole process, Ella is excited to wear the outfits she has been designing and sewing.  She is thrilled to be able to commit to an entire year to designing, making and finally donning an entirely new persona that she created herself from scratch.
