Pantomime.






For the last month or so Panto has pretty much taken over my life in the best possible sense as it's something I utterly love doing! I'll class myself as wardrobe assistant but I basically help out all over, from dressing the cast as believe me these costumes are heavy and not at all easy to get on, to altering and fixing costumes to. I also get asked my input or thoughts on how it looks from the stage. I'm lucky enough to help one of the loveliest ladies I know she's called Diane and it's always a pleasure to see her and help her out!

I snapped these pictures during one of the shows, while my dressing room was empty. Unfortunately I didn't make any of these costumes but one day I'd love to try my hand at making something for the stage. Another thing panto has made me do is love glitter, sparkles and anything diamante! If my 15 year old self could see me now she'd be horrified! (at 15 I generally hated colour, wore alot of black and liked to think I was a massive emo, and I wasn't.)

By the way the Pantomime was Sleeping Beauty and we had some rather wonderful music in it including tracks from Olly Murs, LMFAO and even had the dame doing Gangnam Style... the most disturbing thing I've ever seen to this day!

    1. The panto was in my hometown in Cheshire, I'm guessing gangnam style was a popular choice for ost pantos this year ;)

  2. I volunteered at my theatre for the pantomime too! Although I can't say my experience was anything like I hoped and felt rather secluded as I was doing the spotlights up in a tiny room at the very top of the theatre so didn't get to talk to anyone or join in on any of the action. Glad your experience sounds much better than mine was!

    1. I've probably been helping with wardrobe for the last five years. So I'm part of the team now and help with choices/decisions :) but my brother does backstage, my mum is on stage and my dad does front of house! :)
