Costumy things

I finally got into storage to pull costumes for Man of La Mancha yesterday and got everything hung up and ready to sort through for the actors. Yay! I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere on this show now. Looking forward to getting the materials for making the ever exciting Knight of Mirrors! More on that when I start on it.

Glorious mess unloaded from the car.

All hung up in a much too small area, but it's what I've got.

Ooh, shiny!

In the meantime, I have a costume crisis. I'm still really in the beginning/mid stages of Artemisia, but I also really want to make the Cyber King's (Mercy Hartigan) gown from Dr. Who.

And here she is all cyber-ified
Apparently I'm into making villainesses at the moment? Hmm. Anyways, I have a slight apprehension about the black out contacts, mainly because I already wear contacts so I can see. Eye problems. But otherwise, gorgeous gown, cool head piece, creepy cyber-minions, what's not to love?

We'll see when/if I ever get around to it.

New project

So... It's been a long time. Anyone still there? If you are I have some new projects coming up, namely a new show that I'm working on! I mean new for me, it's a classic, not a new show. Anywho, I am designing costumes for Man of La Mancha at the Seattle Musical Theatre and very soon will be all in on my building phase. Just ordered some exciting materials this morning! I will hopefully get around to posting photos of that when the time comes.

In old news, I feel bad because I never posted any photos from my last show Don Juan in Chicago, so I'll put in a couple here. Photo credit for these to Michael Brunk of
