So, I'm now costuming at Miami Children's Theater. Which is a non-for-profit theater, for kids, by kids.

Here was the Willy costume I made. It is sort of a mix of the Gene Wilder and the Depp version although I've always been a Wilder fan. I found a large dark green velvet blazer at a thrift store and altered it and added a striped trim to make it more "Wonka" and so that'd fit our skinny actor. I also made the matching vest and added trim to the hat. In the last scene(Spoiler Alert!), when Charlie wins, he goes off stage and makes a 30 second change into a little Wonka suit. I've got to find those pictures. If I do I'll post'em

Full Shot

FOUND PICTURE! Wonka and Charlie in little Wonka suit


Here are some other costumes, second hand, stock and built.

Gloops

The Salts (I based her after Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl)

The Beaugregards. She blew up with an inflatable suit underneath

The Teavees. Oh, there so skeezy



Enjoy!

They're all very nice indeed. I like making costumes. I wish I could design but I can't draw a decent looking model to save my life. Tongue Nevertheless, kudos to you! Smiley

Thanks Everyone! Such great comments

Working there really is a labor of love. I'll be sad to leave in the fall. I'm going to school next year, for costume design and technology!
