As I told my family, I was not exactly the bride of God this time. The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard. Please note the costumes, because they’re mine. I managed to pull/alter almost everything in the show. The white tennis dress (it’s pretty awesome when you can actually see it clearly) was made from a circle skirt. I only used $20 of my $50 budget; I did buy the fabric and other materials for my dress with my personal money. (I’m in the middle, in the red.) If I’m going to make myself a dress, I may as well keep it. Right?
I have no idea why I’m glaring in this one, but it’s pretty accurate representation of what I’d normally look like when being displayed in evening dress. The things we do for theatre…
Thanks to Kelsey for the awesome photos!!
As for my current projects, I am costuming a short piece called Aria Da Capo. There are two harlequinade-style costumes, which are kind of ridiculous but also fun. I’m making them from scratch, so it’s going to be a busy week.
I am also Assistant Directing a production of Return to the Forbidden Planet, which is pretty awesome. I normally don’t like musical theatre, but some of the rock musicals have something to them. This particular show has the critical added bonus of being entirely constructed of stolen/vandalized Shakespeare between the songs. Really, that’s why I’m there.
It’s a busy quarter.
