Here are some process photos of the hat I recently posted on my Etsy store, Silly And Sundry.
A cheap dollar store straw hat revived and rescued using silk flowers and a reshaped brim! This garden bonnet works well for any 19th century lady
I’m baaaaack! This tumblr page will become active again in a few weeks, and I’m kicking off it’s revival with my new etsy store! I’ll be posting some crafty things I make during my down time— with some of it being fandom related, just for my glorious tumblr pals. :)
Fun fabric prints!
A lady walking a dog, surrounded by five other dogs. I’d wear that garment.
Over the past few days, I have been having fun learning the fashion program, Marvelous Designer. In it, I crafted a late Victorian Woman.
Oh, but here’s where the real fun begins. I call it, “Victorian Woman Taking None of Your Shit.”
This one is “Show You The Door”
In a similar pose, but different attitude, I call it, “I Fight Super Villains in a Fifty Pound Dress”
Nightmare fuel is a great aesthetic. Sweet dreams, everyone!
Made from carved foam, cheesecloth, and yak hair. Inspired by a middle school teacher of mine, who was accused of harassment a few years after I left for high school. This is one of the first mask I built.
I’ve been busy helping to build Legally Blonde, opening now at Connecticut Repertory Theatre! Costume design by the fantastic Sam Martin, and puppet design by Carianne Hoff!
Plus, I got to tailor that magnificent pink suit. *smiley*
Another wonderful panel at USITT!
Using unconventional materials to make wigs, with costume designer Cheri Vasek from the University of Hawaii.
It truly is amazing what one can do with a shower puff!
That’s one use for cowboy hats.
Thrifting period costumes!
I attended a panel at USITT on thrifting period costumes. Above costumes were created using pieces entirely from Goodwill.
Rose Brand Action Design competition!
I have recently returned from the annual theatrical conference USITT (United States Institute of Theatre Technology) in Fort Worth, Texas. This competition involved draping something in three hours using unknown materials. The fabric wasn’t revealed until the timer began. A very fun challenge!
Disco Ball Dress
Designed by Maureen Freedman for the stage play “Dead Heavy Fantastic”, constructed by myself.
