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!
