Mercury Theatre, Colchester 2019
Costumes designed by David Shields
This year was a particularly big panto job for me, as double the dames meant double the number of costumes to make! I built all costumes for the Ugly Stepsisters Kylie and Miley, played by Antony Stuart-Hicks and Dale Superville, including a full fatsuit for Dale. Wigs were created by Lucinda Cawdron. In addition, I also made Cinderella's transformation ballgown, which was an interesting challenge, and a first foray for me into quick change techniques.
