We love costume shopping! This afternoon, a few of us headed over to Talize where we discovered 'the new power of thrift'. Talize is a second-hand store that just so happens to be a handy-dandy place to find some perfect costumes! We hunted through the colored-coded racks of clothing and found some pretty strange things...such as a pair of shorts that had a bum on the backside of them and some sort of scarf that had a tiger head attached to it....interesting. Oh yeah, and if anyone is looking for a wig, Talize has some nice ones that will cover up the bald spot appearing on your head quite nicely.

 

 For this production, we're going for a mystical and magical look with our costumes to really emphasize the importance magic plays in the plot.  The more eccentric a costume is, the better! Luckily, we managed to find this pretty, shimmering, silver dress that-with a little bit of touch up here and there- will be perfectly enchanting as Titania's dress! For Oberon, we found these sparkly, light blue pants (that I think belonged to a girl dressing as Jasmine for Halloween at one point) and they are amazing!! We won't put a picture up because we want it to be a surprise for the show! ;) 

 

We hope you all enjoyed the lovely sunny afternoon we had today! Hopefully 'the sun will come out tomorrow' too! (good for you if you got my Annie reference!)
