Making It WorkWish me luck! I will be at ArtLab this weekend to help anyone who shows up with stuff to in the infamous words of Tim Gunn: "Make it Work!"
As a costume designer whose first costume ever was in the first or second grade a concoction I cooked up inspired by my Grandfather's copy of Mode in Costume. I remember having a difficult time deciding between Medieval hennins, Elizabethan pointy stomachers and all that jewelery or Victorian hoop skirts.
Because I found several hula hoops, my brother's belts and a bunch of my mother's old curtains Victorian won out. I traipsed all over the neighborhood in the get up with my Mom's strategic addition of a floor length red velvet cape trimed with a fur collar from one of her coats. Thanks Mom!
I hope I get to help kids feel as fabulous as I did that night!
