  • First Pieces

    So this is pretty revolutionary (in my own little world anyway).

    Tomorrow (tonight I guess) is the opening night for Dance/Light here at Carnegie Mellon. It's described as an " extravaganza of dance performance with lighting and costume design". There are 24 dance pieces in the show, and I designed the costumes for #9, We Carry On. I say this is revolutionary, because this is the first event of this nature that I've designed costumes for. Sure I 've designed for Greek Sing in the past, and make costumes all the time. But I'm just really excited to have my name in a program coming out of the School of Drama. 

     

  • Costuming Craze

    It looks like I'll be heading into a costuming frenzy these next few weeks. 

    Not that my life isn't usually a costuming frenzy, but, this will be a bit more extreme

    In January the Carnegie Mellon University Shcool of Drama will be hosting Dance Lights, a collaborative performance between the lighting department, costume department, and student choreographers. I somehow managed to worm myself into costume design classes this year, and was hence allowed to design for one of the performances. I'll be making the costumes for my piece over this holiday break, so that's 5 costumes to make. 

    I also picked up 3 commissions over the fall that I said I would construct over the break as well. 

    One month, 8 costumes? Bring it on. 

    I did go get the swatches today for my commission pieces though. It was a hectic adventure, but my swatch sheets are done.
