•Choose a costume or character
•Choose an action (connecting with the human being in front of you)
•Present yourself on high place
•Make sure that eyes stand out (outline with black or brown)
•Cover your head (hat, wig etc.)
•Relax (want to use as little energy as possible with the pose)
•Control your breathing (deeply and slowly)
•Shift your position gradually (avoiding cramping or fatigue)
Have a long cape with a cap. The long cape should have a
long dress underneath with a rope attached at the waist.
Having a long t-shirt underneath (preferably Earth colors)
is a good for keeping warm and adding to the 'explorer'
Same cape. Underneath could wear a black shirt with black
hangar pants and brown buckle shoes. Hat similar to a chef
hat, only a little flatter. The black can't steal focus from the
acting and props so that's a plus.
Golden tank top, white sheath blanket over the top. This could
act as something warm to wear and the explorer effect. The
blanket over the shoulder could act as a cape. It could also
represent a higher status in hierarchy.
Could also use pants. Probably the time
period was different, but Vespucci also
wore pants and a jacket for his travels.
Brown pants and jacket, with leather
More royal attire. The small red cape represents
higher status over people. Golden button's could
work, because Vespucci was quite rich. The puffy
sleeves represent that this was in the 1500's.
A puffy hat, just a bit smaller than a chef's hat.
Could paint the face all white with a bit of color on
the cheeks and the lips. The eyes could be painted
black around them to look like they're more in depth.
Black hat and heavy black beard. This could work,
maybe using a normal wig and putting it on the chin.
The mustache could be made with string or marker.
Hat could be piece of cloth sowed together and
feather stuck on top.
Another type of beard could be used, with a split in the
middle. The hair on the side could be used as well instead
of short hair which is invisible under the hat.
The short hair and beard could be black or white. A hat or
longer hair (wig) could have added a nice touch, maybe to
show that he was an explorer. Maybe the eye-brows could be
painted dark so that it would give the face a nice edge.
This one has a dark beard with short hair. The collar gives it a nice
touch. It also shows that this was an old explorer who lived in a
different time period. The eye-brows are nice and dark, so the face
stands out a lot.
