Theatrical & Dance Costumes

About Theatrical and Dance Costumes

Having been trained for theatrical costumes, I’ve worked for several theater companies, in Colorado and North Carolina. I played a variety of roles, such as the pattern-maker and director of costume construction. Currently, I use the same talents to do private commissions for a variety of events, such as Comicon, costume parties, the Renaissance Fair, and charity fundraisers.

Opera and Ballet

I had a course on classical tutus, at North Carolina School of the Arts. These were designed and create for a dance student. 

I designed and built this Mouse King costume, for Ballet Nouveau Colorado’s production of ‘The Nutcracker’. 

This costume was made for Piedmont Opera’s production of ‘La Boheme’, in 1999. I patterned, draped & constructed it, from Kathryn Grillo’s design. As you can see, there’s a lot going on, visually, with many patterns, plus a dynamic and intricate design. However, a cohesive color scheme brings it all together. 

Coats based on 18th century men’s fashion, for North Carolina Dance Theatre’s ‘Cinderella’ ballet.
