oliver pictures and review!

i told you about the huge costuming job i just finished up, last week, at the artisan...but i didn't really show you any of the costumes. so here is a quick look at some of my favorite rehearsal/production photos! 

"Costumer Rebecca Roberts did a glorious job dressing the huge variety of street people."

see full review here.

this show was such fun because of all of the mix-matched, low class characters. i loved putting their costumes together. but then the fun, colorful characters had some amazing costumes as well. not going to lie...the artful dodger's costume is my favorite costume EVER.

i loved this opportunity so much...and am so proud of how amazing the show is. if you're anywhere near north texas you should absolutely make a trip out to see this fantastic show. so many cute little boys singing and can you resist it?

oliver...oliver twist!

wow. hey there! life is kind of crazy, huh? 
one of the biggest things i've been working on that i'm excited to share with y' my job as costumer for "oliver!" at the artisan theater. i'm not going to was a massive job...and i still can't believe i agreed to it (but i'm so glad i did). it was such a HUGE learning experience...and i met some incredible people. 

it was my first time driving to the artisan (alone) several times a week (a big deal for me). i got my own key to the costume shop (eep!). i handled everything from taking measurements, purchases, constructions needs (i got a little help with that one), and putting ALL of the costumes together. luckily a couple of my friends (and my awesome mother) pitched in at fittings (otherwise...i would have died), costume parade, and tech week.

such a fun, rewarding, HARD experience. yay for tackling challenges!
i'll share production photos and the review the costumes got soon (so exciting)!
