Introduction and Intent
- Hello everyone!
I'm Kristi R-C and I found this course through another Yahoo group
relating to theatrical costuming.
I'm interested in the historical aspects of fashion because I never
know what I'll be asked to handle, repair, describe, or reproduce. I
wear three career hats: I teach music and drama at a small Catholic
middle school in north east Wisconsin; I'm an IATSE stagehand working
primarily wardrobe local crew for touring shows as well as helping
for local ballet, music and theatrical productions; and I teach skin
care and makeup application techniques including theatrical makeup.
This course will help with all three of those areas. In the past year
I've worked with costumes ranging from period hats for a high school
production of "Les Miz" and variety of ballet tutus for the
Childnre's Ballet Theatre production of the Nutcracker to Vegas show
girl panniers for "The Producers". In each case, those items were new
to me. Though I feel I've done well in each situation, a structured
overview will increase my confidence in what may come in the future.
