On of my favorite projects this year came after I was hired to be Wardrobe Supervisor for "Mary Poppins" at Starlight Theatre in Kansas City. The Costumes were provided by KC Costume Co. After the show closed KCCC asked me to stay on with them to design the "Scary Toys", a number in "Mary Poppins" cut from the Starlight Production. Here is the "Scottish Doll with a Broken Arm"
The "Country Rag Doll" and "Calico Kitty" and the "Sailor Boy" were all created for the tour package. I designed, pulled fabric, cut, draped and over saw construction on this number. It was nice to have the freedom to design from scratch. The only limitations were the specific character names.
