COSTUME DRAMA 2015

This year, I participated in the Asheville Community Theater's "Costume Drama" fundraiser fashion show. My category was "Christmas in July." I felt like I had something to say about Christmas in July, so I joined in.

This was an alternative material challenge - everything made was made from "xmas stuff." My dress was made from wrapping paper and vintage light reflectors. The hat was woven with ribbon.

After the show, a passionate audience member stopped me to thank me for "telling the truth about Christmas." You are welcome...lol!! He also mentioned that during my video interview, the woman next to him gasped "Keep Christ in Christmas"!! I choose to take that as a compliment.
