So, yeah, back to costumes. No matter what people say, they're fun. They're super fun. Like 4 year-old sneaking into grandma's closet and putting on a fashion show fun. Why is it that dressing-up like an eighty year-old woman or a technology-shunning cult member struggling through his toast obsession is oh-so entertaining? The answer to that, dear Reader, is simple. Because you get to pretend you're someone you're not. For a moment, matching pastels and black pants are a-ok. You get to be a ridiculous mess and then shed your Jehovah Witness-esque frock and return to the real world. As a writer, costumes give the goofy little world that was once but a figment of my imagination life. And that's cool. Really cool. Seeing a world you've worked so hard to collaboratively develop with your super talented cast and crew suddenly come to life is awesome. It's why theatre's just a little magical. So, yeah, I'm going to be stoked about these costumes. I don't care what you say. Unless it's a big thanks to Barbara Mason because she's incredible.
