Springtime at last!

Good evening! I just realized I have not posted since November! I am terrible at this whole blog upkeep thing! Since November, I have costumed The Importance of Being Earnest and Pirates of Penzance at Grace University, and have costumed 12 Angry Jurors at Iowa Western. Our production of Othello at Iowa Western, in which I played Emila, also was chosen to perform at KCACTF, a regional theatre festival. Out of about 225 shows submitted, they chose 6 to perform, and we were one of those 6! So that was pretty cool. My next blog post might just have to be photos from all the shows I have been involved in for the last few months! Currently I am rehearsing for Iowa Western’s Dog Sees God, in which I will be playing CB’s Sister, which is super exciting. The script is absolutely incredible, and deals with very relevant issues that are dear to my heart. But enough about me! Here’s my outfit for today, and I might be slightly premature in my celebration of spring, but I hope not! This is such a fun Easter colored outfit, and it’s super simple to slip into and run around all day. Hope to post again soon! Thanks for reading!

Good morning! I have yet another post today, within a week of my last post! Congrats to me! Yesterday was opening night for Othello, and it went fabulously! Here is a link to an article written about the movement and the purpose of the play. Universal Language of Movement Again, if you are in the area, I urge you to call and reserve a ticket, because it is a unique experience that you will hopefully enjoy! Today I had one class, and we watched Romeo + Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Dane. We got to the balcony scene, and now that I understand Shakespeare language, it is so beautiful! I will definitely have to go back and read Romeo and Juliet again. Anyway, enough rambling, here is my outfit, details under the pictures! Everything I bought today was either on sale or bought secondhand, which is proof that even if you are not flushed with cash, you can create cute outfits from thrift stores. Thanks for reading!

Good morning! This past week has been super crazy here at Iowa Western as we are preparing for our Othello opening on Thursday- tomorrow! I am playing Emelia, and we are doing a modern art take on the show, becoming living statues on stage. It is going to be absolutely fabulous, and for those of you in the area, come see us at 7:30 on Nov 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th, 11th, and 12th! Today I am posting my outfit that I randomly put together this morning. Normally I would not pair a sweater with a fluffy skirt, but I actually super love this look. As long as the sweater isn’t too loose or too thick, so as to loose your shape, this is a lovely way to use a summer skirt, and turn it into a fall outfit. Details under the pics!

Happy Saturday! Today I am having a “home day” and staying on my couch all day trying to get ready for a new busy week. Next Saturday I am attending a 5 year reunion- which seems crazy! I won’t bother everyone with the details of how my life has changed in the last five years, but I can say that I have never felt so good about the direction of my career and my friendships I have gained from it. I am absolutely overwhelmed with theatre right now, but I have never been so happy to be so busy! I just finished working on Elf Jr. at the Chanticleer Theatre, which was a wonderful experience, and I am having rehearsals three days a week for the fabulous show at Iowa Western, and am starting to work on costumes for the Importance of Being Earnest at Grace University. On top of that, I have Princess jobs almost every weekend for the next month, and I have to admit that it is basically the best job ever. : ] But back to the matter of fashion, hopefully soon I’ll be posting some photos from my shows, but here is my outfit from the other day. I felt like being a little edgier for my shift at the Berry and Rye [yet another job], so I wore a romper from Plato’s closet, patterned tights, and my super awesome punk rock boots from Style Encore. Details under the pics!

Good morning! Yet again, I have a post after way too long away from the blog. I’ve decided not to apologize anymore, but I will say I can try harder to post more often! I’ve been working a few jobs this summer, and costumed a show at the Shelterbelt Theatre, which has been a great experience. The show is called Shattering the Glass, and is three one acts written locally about women. This outfit is from a few days ago when my husband and I went down to the Old Market to play Pokemon Go :). Details are underneath!

Stage Makeup

Good morning everyone! Wow, it has been months since I last posted! I am so sorry, but finally school is out for summer, and I will be posting much more often! Today, I don’t have a fashion post (again), but I have a collection of my makeup applications for my Stage Makeup class that I took this semester. The class taught me a lot about the importance of practice and research. I realized that while I enjoy costuming, I am going to have to work a lot to tone my special effects makeup. Well, hopefully I will have some fashion posts soon, but for now, enjoy!
