COSTUME & MAKEUP NOTES (MARCH 19)

Stage lighting washes out your face, so accentuate all your facial features using foundation, eyeliner, blush, mascara, eyebrow pencil, and lipstick. You can get a stage make up kit from Amazon for around $22.00. or purchase items at the cosmetic section in stores; they don’t have to be expensive. Your foundation should be 1-2 shades darker than your natural coloring. You may want to purchase a small package of baby wipes to remove makeup as well.

 Orphans

  • Please arrive in your first costume, PJ’s with hair and makeup done.
  • Makeup notes above with additional smudges on your face.
  • Hair should be messy.  Pigtails, braided, buns/updos, etc.  Some could even wear a hat.
  • When you get your nice dresses on, you will clean up your hair and makeup.
Mansion staff
  • Hair-men slicked back.
  • Hair-women neat bun in the back of your head if possible.  I have headpieces for you as well.

COSTUME HOME STRETCH (March 9, 2018)
Starting Monday the 19th you will be rehearsing with all costumes all the time.  Please let me know if you are missing anything, ASAP, including your size.  I will try to get over break and have available for you.
  • younger cast, please bring a paper bag with your name on it to store your costumes that are not hung up.
  • ALL cast, starting again on Monday 3/19, your costumes will be hung on the hanging racks and will be stored in the green room.
  • please remember to wear something like a tank top with shorts underneath your costume to make ease of costume changes.  The main bathrooms will not be available once we have an audience.
 
Hooverville and NYC.  In the south hallway of the auditorium, are costumes you can use.  Plenty of coats, scarves, hats, gloves, etc.  Please ask Kay or Meghan for help, if needed.  Please try to brighten your NYC costumes.  If you are wearing a dark suit, try adding colorful tie, scarf, etc.
Cabinet members
Ladies, I think you are done
Men, please look through the suits in the hallway.  I have added some new ones that may fit.
FDR, I have missed you, hope you are feeling better.  There are somethree-piece suits for you to look at, hanging in hallway/costume area
 
Orphans
I have found distressing costumes by soaking in tea unnecessary.  You can distress by adding patches, seam ripping the collars, wrists, and hems. There are patches available for you to sew onto your costumes in costume area.  Not everyone needs to add patches. Please plan to hang your dresses, and paper bag the rest.  All costumes should remain at the theater.
There are some sweaters you can use too, hanging in costume area.
Mansion staff
Men, your vests and bow ties are coming
Gals, you should have aprons unless you are a cook, they are coming
All ladies, I have headpieces for you, next week
French maids will be done next week as well.  Please remember to purchase a pair of fishnet stockings, except for Will :D.
Again, please let me know if you need help with any missing costume pieces.  I plan to pack up the unused costumes next week, so you have room to hang yours.  Please bring in the costumes I sent home with you and store at the theater, starting Monday 3/19.
The directors have final say on all costumes, even though you may have been cleared by me.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Costume Updates

All cast should start wearing the shoes and or boots they plan to wear in the show for rehearsals.

You should have your core costumes done by Thursday, March 8th.

We can start focusing on accessories: scarves, gloves, overcoats, etc. I will have items available for you to peruse at rehearsal that night. Thursday 3/8, will also be Orphan costume “distressing night”. Please bring in any costumes that need to be distressed. We should have patches available to sew on by then.
