Costume Shop Work with Cinderella In Mind

Boxes, labeled and unlabeled, some with tops missing, holding hundreds of pairs of shoes were yanked from the shelves. Most of the shoes were sorted; some were out of place. Men's loafers, women's ankle boots, oxfords, women's MaryJanes. On and on. Finally, I found containers filled with kitty-heeled shoes and slippers. Pink grosgrain, teal satin, gold leather, silver sparkled, and lavender. These just might prove to be useful!

Blouses with ruffles and bows were hunted. A handful were discovered -- women's blouses that I hope will fit some of the guys. After all, in mid-1700's, men wore ruffles and bows.

Pink, bright green, brown, and silver-gray wigs in tall womanly updo's and manly ponytails. Pearl chokers, burgundy colored beads, rings and things, buttons and bows. Yup. This is the fun stuff that will finish the outfits off.

I hung shirts, sorted tights, located military jackets that will probably be too small anyway. A new vest or two in fabulous silk foulard or paisley were found. I imagined gowns with different skirts, necklines with additional lace, and always new sleeves of elbow length with lace galore.

And I've only just begun. Care to join me next time?
