Coming out of the woods!

This weekend is the last weekend to see Huntsville Community Chorus”s youth production of “Into the Woods”! Earlier in the spring HCCA hired me to design, and style costumes for their production. I was able to pull in UAH student Kaylie Miller to design Little Red Riding Hood, and the Witches cape. Kaylie is an intern at Fig Leaf Costumes, she is mainly a Theatre major and Business admin minor in her Senior year there.

We researched the costumes, color theory, and textures of fabrics for each character to set the visual tone of the play. Once this was done a student costumer Leah Purves, and her assistant Sharon Purves took over the costume construction part. They did a beautiful job organizing, altering, and construction costumes for the cast. It really is a beautiful show.

We were able to see the show last week. Local photographer Jeff White shot the play from head to golden toes. All show photographs below are photographed by him. enjoy the photographs, and costume sketches below, but to get the full effect, go see the show!
