The Magic of Costumes

The Magic of Costumes

Jean Roth, Acting Out Board Member, financial manager¬†and costumer extraordinaire shares some of her behind the scenes photos of the making of Belle’s ball gown.

When asked where she finds inspiration for her creations Jean stated-

“Initially, I derive inspiration for creating costumes from the raw materials. Textiles, colors, textures, ribbons, thread, and even zippers are a few items that spark my creativity. The thought of taking a flat piece of fabric and manipulating it to create a flowing ball gown or period suit is exhilarating.”

“As the process evolves I take motivation from the cast members and the characters they portray. My goal is to help each individual get into character in order to transport the audience to another place and time.”

Magic….aka¬†– hard work!
