Caucasian Chalk Circle Costumes
- Hi Folks:
First let me apologize for the cross-posting as some of you may get this
more than once.
Secondly, after lurking on these groups for a while, I finally have a
I am designing costumes for Bertolt Brecht's Caucasian Chalk Circle in New
York City, and have a very limited budget...it's rather, shall we say,
challenging. I was wondering if anyone has any advice, resources, etc., that they
could point me towards for renting costumes for a show set in the Russian
mountains just after World War II. There will be lots of peasants (their small
costume shop's stock has a few things from a production of Fiddler a few years
ago) as well as military gear and uniforms (Cossacks, even), and we'll need
lots of boots (rather like riding boots, but made of softer leather than
typical modern American riding boots) and lots of big furry hats, and lots of
coats. I have no crew, and only one friend/volunteer with a sewing a machine.
I'm told they usually rent from TDF's Costume Collection, but they are
closed for a month and we'll need to find other sources.
Anyone have any ideas?
Many THANKS in advance for any help.

- hi,good luck wih the play.my suggestions:try for
sponssor.this is hard i know.but you can apply to some
fashion creators so they make a good impression
helping art.or some rich company or bank helping them
with taxes.other way might be second hand stores.you
can provide there almost ready costumes and aplicate
the specific elements for the costumes.as buttons,furs
or streaps.some you don t need to sew,just color like
graffiti or sth. like this.and my last suggestion ,but
you depend to the director on this.as it s well known
that brecht releid his play to the solomonic laws,move
the action in those times.then you ll need just
colorful sheet.voals and sand on the stage.have fun
and good luck once again.
