Lagooned 2008

Here is my best costume. I kept hounding the actor to see what she was going to wear. finally I realized that she was having trouble so I racked my brain to think of something that would work. I finally went through my closet and looked for a dress that I really wasn't wearing anymore. I grabbed that and then though of my biking tights that had the cool jungle print. I brought them in and through the dress on Audrey. I again grabbed my trusty shears and while they were getting notes I slashed the bottom of it while she turned on the stage. It came out pretty cool. I had already made the headress and wristlets and anklets out of rafia and the collar. I macramaed those. I had gotten the color from the outreach and they were the only two colors available. They turned out to be exactly the same colors of her costume and that Puck painted the set with. I love serendipity.

I also love that she wore her glasses :)

I found the cool bat at Goodwill too. I think it is some kind of souvenier from Mexico, but it looked very cool

Here is a picture of the set with the tiki in a spot it did not occupy during the play. We just moved it out for the newpaper picture

I like this picture of our captain and miss buford
