I'm finally finished!!
I have been working for the last three months on the costumes for my community theatre group's production of "The Fantasticks".  I was originally just asked to help plan the costumes but after one meeting, found out that one woman didn't know how to sew and the other woman was going through intensive cancer treatments...so I was on my own!  So, between working part-time, going to grad school full-time, and generally trying to have a life, I've been living on coffee...but I'm done!!
Here's a few pics from a rehearsal the other night...

Bellomy and El Gallo hamming it up
I made everything except the pants (scrub pants from my wedding costumes)

Hucklebee sittin' pretty
This entire outfit was made for this production as well.

My cast!!

Again, made this entire costume as well

Mortimer in his indian outfit (he's a pirate later-don't have a picture though)
Again, all but the pants made for the production

Henry with his tattered doublet
I made the shirt and added stuff to the pants and doublet to make them look worn and tattered without ruining the doublet (it belongs to my personal costume collection, not the company's)...not a great pic though

This is the least of what my costumes go through each night!  The poor guy has bruises from rehearsals...

Alright...soooo ready for time to sleep now that these are done...unfortunatly I have to be at dress rehearsal every night till we open next Thursday!

Thanks for looking!
