We have quite a few things to share with everyone,
We have been working with two amazing fashion designers. Claire Henry and Sadie Monroe are donating their time to make a physical version of the garment worn by the main character. It is inspired by harmful fashion trends spanning multiple cultures and time. Sadie and Claire put together these two mood boards as one of the first steps toward making the dress:
Currently, they are putting together the muslin for the dress, which is used as a test before using the final fabric. The muslin, along with a new prototype is going to showcase during our next playtesting session: next Thursday Sept. 27 at 916 S Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605 in the Project Room from 5-8pm. If you are in the area and can make it, we would love to see you all there.
For the next prototype we are going to try out some new poses and we also hope to have a rough audience and young woman in the game. As a teaser, here are some of the rough pose silhouettes that we have:
We'd love to see/hear some pose recommendations from you all. Whether its images you find on the internet, or a blocked out picture of yourself. Feel free to tweet us: Amanda & Blair
And last but not least, we'd like to share a piece of art work donated to us by Anthony Sixto. Anthony is a very talented 2D/3D/concept artist that Blair and I have worked with and continue to work with on a variety of projects. Here is his take on A Fitting:
Once again, if you can: Come join us on Thursday September 27th from 5-8pm at 916 S Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605 in the Project Room for our next open playtesting exhibition.
We have 16 days left in the campaign, help us spread the word if you can.
Thank you all for your support.
