This will be an ongoing photo series that focuses on one pivotal aspect of a performance that can help elevate a creative vision into the realization of something truly memorable. From first hand experience, the costumes can be one of the biggest headaches to a performer as they require significant investments of time, creativity and finance. The fitttings, hand stoning, coordinating between sexes, rips/tears, and the money that goes into each individual outfit can be mind numbing, but has the potential for an incredible payoff as it really is the final step that wraps up and accents all the hard work and the myriad of components that went into taking a routine from an idea to artistic actualization on the stage. This post (which I will continue to update) is simply my thank you to all you artists/creatives who have taken that extra step to provide your audiences with the best show possible! Kudos!
