St Marys CBS, Enniscorthy
The idea for our outfit was to create a post-apocalyptic warrior and survivor’s outfit. This was something that we wanted to do to highlight the fact that our world is in trouble because of global warming due to the amount of waste that we are throwing away every day. Our outfit is entirely made of scrap and found material such as various types of metals, nuts and bolts. The ‘junk’ that we found in different scrapyards could easily be recycled but we found it just laying there. We feel that the rusted and aged look represents what parts of our dying planet is beginning to look like.
