Willy Wonka Costumes

I can’t even believe it’s taken me this long to post about Willy Wonka! Well, to be fair to myself, I’ve been waiting for our photographer to give me the photos he took. I guess his slacking teaches me that I should just take my own photos when I can, but oh well.  This show […]

No-Sew Bird Wings

For my production of Once On This Island I had 4 tiny little girls to dress as tropical birds. The problem I always find with bird costumes is that they’re usually out of our budget or just not cute at all. This year was no different. I really needed something they could throw on and […]
