Re-posting some fun moments from this year!
This year I had a rare opportunity to be the costumer for this years high school musical "Legally Blonde". The kids were amazing, hardworking and very receptive to my ideas. I had a ton of fun playing into the old tropes and stereotypes of the characters, which where almost 12 years old. And, figuring out how to make a "Playboy Bunny" costume appropriate for a high school actress. I am sure we got some backlash along the way, but then isn't that what art has always done.

Art Deco is a term used to describe a style of visual arts, whether its architecture, furniture design, paintings, jewelry or clothing. The term was coined in France after World War 1, and in it's heyday represented luxury, glamour and technological progress.
I have always loved art deco paintings for the color, vibrancy and angular lines. Here are a few of my recent favorite art deco inspired artwork, found on pinterest, and you'll see a commonality in the attention to female elegance of the 1920's, flapper era.
