Today was my first day as costumer for the University theatre department! The way everything worked out is that I am the head costumer and my friend Angela is the assistant costumer. It's going to be so much fun! Today while we were going through and trying to do some organizing and just get a general feel for what was there we kept getting distracted by every exiting and cool thing. To us it was like Christmas, birthday, and 20 good garage sales all mixed into one :) We kept saying "we're having way to much fun. I can't believe we're getting paid for this!"
It's kind of hard to explain what the costume shop is like, so I took some pictures...it's really hard to take pictures in a very crowded storage area. There is two separate rooms, one where the sewing and everything takes place which also houses the notions, fabric, small accessories, the extra machines for costuming class, and so much more. The second room has 4 giant racks of clothes, an enormous amount of hats and shoes, tons of boxes of various clothing and accessories, and even more clothes hanging from the ceiling. There is another gigantic room of the costume shop that is stuffed to the brim with props...but I don't really have much to do with that. Anyway, here's the best pics I could get.
