For this production, I shepherded 42 kids between the ages of 7 and 14 through the process of creating their own costume designs.  After several exercises and discussions about what the characters were like, I provided them with a list of the costumes we needed and asked them to draw.  I compiled a cohesive costume design from the great ideas they gave me, trying to work in as many different drawings as possible.  Then I made, pulled from thrift stores and altered, or borrowed all the costumes per the children's designs. Unfortunately, my camera died before I could take pictures of the actual production, but my friends and family offered to be models. 

None of the pictures do justice to how much this dress shines.
