theater arts

This year our Russian school play has gone by in a blur... but I promised pictures, so here they are. Very few full costumes actually came to life in my studio. I mostly made parts of costumes.
a hat here
some painted tights there
the evolution of a party dress here
A few scenes from the play... several of the months with the heroine of the story; step mother and step sister; the bratty queen; snowflakes; and winter, scaring everyone..

Natalya, the costumes and scenery are amazing. The fabrics alone are gorgeous and the kids look like they are having fun. Thanks for sharing the photos. I look forward to this every year.

I knew it, I knew it! Costumes for the school show... Is this the story "Двенадцать месяцев" Самуила Маршака? I know it and like it.
It seems to have been again a feast of colours, music and a lot of joy! The costumes are wonderful! I especially like the tree.:) Are you contented?

I always enjoy looking at he costumes that you work on each year. I am helping to costume Hello Dolly for my daughter's high school this year.

Beautiful costumes, as always! Who got to wear the cool painted tights?

These costumes are truly remarkable, even if you did only pieces of them--who wouldn't want to wear such tights?

I also love the fiber shots, and nature pix.
