Image depicting the final realised carnival costume for Esu Odara at the Nottingham Carnival parade. The backpack was made separately and then dressed by myself creating my own dip-dye technique, sewing, fabric cutting and painting. The leotard contained LED electronic yarn which lit up separately to the backpack of the costume, invented by NTU and put together by my co-designer Viktorija.
