Nightmare: Fairytales opens a week from today! I am in the final push of fittings and finishing costume pieces based on those fittings and making duplicates for the actors who rotate in and out of roles and wigs and on and on.

So far, I am super happy with how everything looks, but there is still just so much to do. Luckily, I have two great assistants, Benjamin Stuber Master of Foam, and Sarah Thea Swafford Seamstress Extraordinaire. Here are some photos of works-in-progress with their corresponding sketches.

Hope you can all make it out to the show! And for more photos and progress updates, check out my Tumblr page and Twitter feed.
