Design Statement

Chinese classical love story of humanity and demons.
The costume which composed of Chinese splash-ink polishing and consisted of simple charm is matched with the stage design. In design vocabulary, it tries to show that the interaction of the scenery and characters. It showed two things on costume design: bleaching and dyeing of life colors and symbols of mark.
Applied the skill of bleaching and dyeing, and matched with the outline of eastern charm to show the characteristic of characters.
It tries to define two worlds of humanity and demon, just like the inside and outside of Aranya Temple.
By using the polishing skills of layer and pile, it is the addition in order to show the unpredictable style of demons' magic. By using the skills of bleaching and fading, it is like the subtraction in order to show the situations that humanity is tempted by demons and loses energy.
