Here are the two costumes I wore in Julian stage company's production of a christmas carol 2010. I played two characters this year. Mrs. Fezziwig and Mrs, Fred. I was the most married lady in the play.
This is the Fezziwig costume before I revised the sleeves. It's bulk is made up of a thrifted bed sheet and a reconned vest plus some ribbon. I decided the sleeves weren't right for the period I was going for so.....
Sorry no pictures of me in costume with the horrendous bee-hive Marie Antoinette wig .
Here is the bonnet I made for Mrs. fred out of the cover of my son's coloring book and some fur remnants I got at yet another thrift store.
And the collar I made to hide my blouses actual collar which was not period correct
And a front and back of the skirt I made for mrs. fred.
Phew! lots of pictures! Thank you for looking at my mess, I had a lot of fun making it and even more fun in the show.
