For Oct. 3rd’s Rush Hour, I need to come up with quick-change Shakespeare costumes for both campuses. I’ve decided to go with an oversized “pirate” shirt, you know, puffy sleeves, simple neckline… very loose, black knee-length pants, a big low-slung belt and a fun Shakespeare-ish hat. Here’s the pattern I chose for the shirt. I found fabric for $1.50/yard at my fave discount store “Wally-World”. Woot the fact that it is October and cheap fabric is readily available for Halloween!
I liked this design alot! I even tested it out sewing it in pink and purple cammo material… which of course I will use for my “V” character later in the season. Adding in a pink “Hanna Montana” fedora. Yes, I’ll post pics later.
I also need to make some human-sized computer costumes. Aaaand, with some slight modifications, we’ll re-use the purple Captain Individuality” costumes for a new character… “Captain Moxy!”
This shirt SO reminds me of the “Puffy Shirt” episode from Jerry Seinfeld!
Stay tuned for updates and pics as the project progresses.
