Costume Workshop at State Thespian Conference

Blog

I just wanted to put up some photos from the costuming workshop Ellie von Radics and I led at Oregon State Thespian Conference a couple of weeks ago.

Ellie focused on age make-up, making our lovely model Maya Zundel look like a crotchety old lady. Meanwhile, I accomplished the amazing feat of putting all of Camille Pejcha’s hair (which nearly reaches the back of her knees when she stands) into pin curls, a wig cap, and a wig.

And after:

The entire thing lasted around 40 minutes, and it went really well. We went over types of wigs, make-up, hair pins, costume and wig maintenance, and more. The audience seemed to be engaged and I hope that they left knowing more about the world of theatre costumes.
