I’m working myself silly on a fantastic costuming gig for Movement Lab dance studio in Toronto. I’ve known the director Ann-Marie Williams through the dance community for years, our paths crossed as students and professionals dancing and administrating our favourite art form! So when she asked me to do all the decorating pieces for the basic tutus and bodysuits she had for her show I jumped at the opportunity.
No frilly, nauseating princessy-ness here, no ma’am! All the pieces are being made from felt, glorious felt! Wherever possible, the pieces (like the gold fish above) will be attached to a brooch pin or a barrette or a headband so that they can also be used afterward, separate from the costume.
I’m off to a good start and will have some finished pieces to share next week. Now back to the machine with me!
