Fall has finally arrived, and with it comes our next costume project! Stivers School for the Arts is presenting HARVEY next weekend, and John Faas Designs/Act II Costumes is dressing this incredible troupe of young actors!

Harvey, a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Mary Chase, is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey -- a pooka, who is a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. The show takes place in the 1940's so expect to find fantastic costumes on the stage! Come out and support young artists and check out HARVEY on October 11th & 12th! Tickets are $5 for students, $10 adults ! 1313 EAST FIFTH STREET DAYTON, OH 45402

It's the week of Thanksgiving which means the following: An enormous bird is in the fridge thawing, meal prep begins in 24 hours, and I'm happily in my shop sewing! Why am I sewing you ask? It's because one of Dayton's most glamorously & fun holiday traditions is just around the corner!

On November 24th, The Rubi Girls will take to the stage for their annual fundraising performance, 'The Show Must Go On!' Funds raised at this one-of-a-kind event is filtered directly into HIV/AIDS & LGBT charities, while also battling the stigma of HIV & AIDS. I'm proud to be designing and building costumes being worn at this amazing event. Take a peek at one of my sketches and an in-progress build!

I hope you and your friend & family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

A bit of lace, a skirt of velvet, and Mrs. White will look amazing next weekend when Stivers performs

CLUE On Stage. It's been such a rewarding experience building looks for such an iconic show. Plus, these kids are really stepping up their game and putting together an excellent performance! I hope you enjoy flipping through the photos as much as I've enjoyed working on the costumes for the show (I went ahead and threw in a few more photos of the cast and everything I've been building for the show) <3 Tonight, Stivers School for the Arts theatre department opens CLUE: On Stage! Break a leg, everyone!
