About Costuming

You work in Costumes?!?  That must be so glamorous!  Working backstage at night as a Dresser and assisting Actors with costume changes requires certain responsibilities.  One of those is doing laundry at the end of the night.  Doing other people’s laundry is NOT glamorous.  Ironing someone’s sweaty shirt in between a matinee and evening performance is NOT glamorous.  My work as a Stitcher during the day in the Costume Shop constructing and altering Costumes also follows this protocol.  Pulling costumes for a production from storage is not always a pretty sight–there may be sweat stains and odors, old and torn pieces needing laborious multiple repairs, and costumes that make you wonder, “Who made this?  Who wore this?”  Not to mention various insect culprits like moths and silverfish.  Yeah.  And just about any Stitcher can tell you sewing on sequined knit fabric and using metallic thread is NOT glamorous.  It’s a lot of work and a pain in the ass.”
