And I’m not sure what, exactly, to talk about.
I like costumes. I like to make costumes. And it hurts me a little inside when someone who should know better does a terrible job on a costume. Case in point: “As You Like It” last night. Rosalind’s first dress was heinous. I’m sorry, but it was. In a play where everyone else was wearing clothes from the 1780’s, she was wearing a dress from the 1580’s. This would be like me wearing my empire dress to a party here in Lincoln, or some guy wearing a tricorn around for fun today. It does not work. Plus, the colors were horrible, and the style was terribly unflattering on this girl. I felt so sorry for her, but what can one do? The rest of the costumes in that play were AWESOME, especially for “Mosieur Le Beau” and “Touchstone”.
In other news, I made a Roman dress a few weeks ago, based off of Gladiator. Pictures below.
