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!

It's crunch time over here at John Faas Designs | ActII Costumes. This Friday is the much beloved Dayton Halloween event, Masquerage, and the ever popular Columbus Halloween event, HighBall Halloween! I've had the honor of designing costumes for both this year.

"Flash of mauve, splash of puce. Fool and king, ghoul and goose. Green and black, queen and priest. Trace of rouge, face of beast."

Woah! Sorry about that. Slipped into Phantom mode for a sec. If you're still looking for something to do this week(end), I strongly urge you to check out Masquerage CLICK HERE FOR INFO. It's the best party in town and the perfect way to party for a cause! (you may even run into me there!) Here are a few photos of what I'm working on!
