With "Crimes of the Heart" just about wrapped for costuming (opens Friday, Jan. 16, Little Theatre of Virginia Beach!) I'm looking forward to "Zombie Prom" and "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" next. Although I have overlapped a bit before, this will be the first time I've done two shows at the same time. Should be fun! "Mariner" will be the biggest challenge as the director is looking for abstract ideas in costuming and set and I'm kind of a literal minded gal. So we shall see. He seems to like my idea using puppets so I'm going to run with that for my initial designs.
I also got the go-ahead for a sewing-it-for-love project. A dear young friend mentioned a while ago she would like a replica of Susan's farewell dress from Prince Caspian and we will get started on that this week. It's so pretty--- and so is she. I think the most difficult part will be finding the fabric for the overdress--- a Williamsburg blue with a brown floral-ish pattern. Jacquard or damask, I think, not too heavy, not too light. And not too expensive!
