FourFourTimes FourFour’s construction worker costumes feature characters of all shapes and sizes and are created by illustrator and writer Lauren Shiflett.
The costumes are designed to be worn as a casual outfit by a construction worker, and also as part of a costume for a fashion event or celebration.
Each costume has a distinct look, but the main focus is on the characters who are wearing the costumes.
“There’s something about this genre that’s not just for women or men, and it’s really interesting to see how different the genders and races of the characters are in this genre,” Shiflet said.
“We wanted to try and capture a different kind of aesthetic and this kind of idea that this is not just a male-only, female-only thing.”
The costumes include outfits for men and women, plus a number of accessories for each.
The clothing includes an all-purpose skirt, a leather jacket and a pair of jeans, but Shiflets said the costume has many more accessories for the male and female characters.
“I wanted to really try and explore the idea of the costumes as a kind of fashion accessory and how the clothing can represent something that’s really important to them, something that they’re proud of,” Shiflesaid.
“When I first got to work on the project, I actually got the idea to make a woman’s costume, but I thought I was going to be a little bit limited by the size of the pants.
So I just went with something that I felt was a little more feminine.
I was thinking about it as, I want to create a costume that’s sort of like a dress, but it’s not too short or too tight, so I could really wear it to a casual event, or as a fashion accessory for a celebration.”
The project is currently a work in progress and the final design is not yet complete, but there is a number design elements in place, including a skirt that has a waistband and a waist belt, and a vest.
“The whole idea of this is that it’s a really simple costume, and the idea is to just let the imagination be your guide, to make the costumes, to try to create something that you can wear to any occasion,” Shiresaid.
The designs include a number that include the characters’ names, as well as the phrase ‘I love you’.
The costumes were designed by Lauren Shifles design studio and the finished pieces will be showcased at the 2017 Fashion Week.
FourFourTimes 4FourTimes’ construction worker attire features characters of both genders.
The costume will be on display at the Fashion Week in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 28.
