Hello, and welcome to another blog about DI. Last time in DI I competed in the Fine Arts challenge, and believe it or not, this time I also got the privileges of competing in this category.
During this learning experience, we were put into groups, and in my group was the intelligent Amy, the amazing Indy, the promising Jonny, and the networking Josh. We first came up with our team name – (Insert Team Name Here) – using our coordinated team work intelligence. Then with that we brainstorm for the perfect solution for our challenge which was to Research trickster characters and how they have been portrayed and/or used in literature, theatre, film, and mythology, then we must Create and present a story about a team-created Trickster who attempts to overcome a Tricky Situation. And to make this more interesting, we had to design and create a Costume that uses Technical Methods to go through a Costume Transformation during the Presentation.
for this challenge my group and I decided on a trickster based on a Greek mythological character named Hermes, and a cartoon character Felix the Cat. After deciding on our trickster, we were asked to come up wiht a story that went with the tricker we came up with, the story our team came up with was about a trickster named felix who wakes up early every morning just to play little tricks on people like mismatching their socks, spilling coffee on their feshly cleaned cloths, ect and that what he does for a living. But one day, Felix’s alarm clock dign’t go off, in fact it completely broke. Felix used his time traveling ablity to travel back in time to do his tricks again, but he forgets to check the year bottom. So instead of traveling to 2022 apr 2 he accadently went to 1922 apr 2. during the return, a boy come into the time machine’s range and the boy was taken to 2022 with felix.
then it was the design stage, my team came together and designed the backdrops, props, and costumes. With that came lotsssss of run over of our presentation.
