NIKOLE "TEHUANA" (CLOSED)


Fri, Nov 27, 2020
M Santos
THIS JOB HAS BEEN COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY AND IS NOW CLOSED
NIKOLE "TEHUANA"

For this entry contest i build a Tehuana costume for Nikole, a Tehuana is a traditional costume from Oaxaca, Mexico.


Tehuana proudly dressed by the "Zapoteca" women who inhabit the Istmo of Tehauntepec, it is one of the best known and admired Mexican regional costumes throughout the world. The Istmo, the narrowest point in Mexico, is a region that brings together Oaxaca, Chiapas, Tabasco and Veracruz. There, throughout history, women have been leaders and protagonists in their environment. They are admired for staying in touch with their roots and customs, capable of mutating according to the occasion, and they have become an emblem of the strong woman who knows how to merge her yesterday with her today, and remain elegantly standing on any occasion.

The Tehuana costume varies in design according to the town where it is worn. It is considered a living costume, because it mutates according to what is required of it, in celebration. It is made up of 2 basic pieces, the huipil and the skirt. Depending on the occasion, it is the embroidery, usually of flowers, and the fabric on which it is embroidered is usually white satin and / or black velvet. 


This was my base photos that how a tehuana costume looks like.

Hey there and welcome to the contest!


Thank you for providing the highly detailed WIPs. Work In Progress is a very important part of this contest, so thanks for that. 

One thing I feel needs to be mentioned though... This is a character design contest, and by your description it seems like your focus will be on the costume. 

I'm not trying to discourage you from continuing, but I just thought I'd mention what the judges will be focusing on. 


Thanks for participating, and have a great rest of your weekend!  :-)

Thanks for your Coment Rick it make all the hard work, worked it, i will keep doing update i not finish yet, but all your feedback is highly appreciated

Foxy 3d It seems that it focuses more on the wardrobe than the character, but I think it is an interesting combination to combine a beautiful face with an impressive suit, but correct me if I am wrong, I have never seen this beautiful woman in this type of suit.


That is something that I love to combine such a historically perfect suit on a person who has had an impressive career seems sublime to me. It's like combining two things that can be aligned correctly, I've also always been a fan of being able to detail a project as much as possible


But your observations are precious to me, and this project is far from being finished I want to go deeper
