Wicked is over…

My mind is still full of so much, to quote Elphaba, “Did that really just happen?” It was a three week gig, but it felt like three days. I ended up getting two chorus girls - Rebecca Kritzer and Shayla Beck - and two swings - Marissa Lupp and Brenda Hamilton - along the way when one of my girls went in for Nessarose a few times.

Those costumes. Those fucking costumes. I CAN’T with those costumes! From a distance they’re pretty awesome, but up close they are BREATH TAKING! Elphaba’s second act costume

- this one -

is incredible up close. I wanted it so badly. So freaking badly! Needless to say though, I was able to narrow it down to my two favorite costumes. My first one is Glinda’s Emerald City dress.

Sure, it’s pretty simple, but I would wear that in a heartbeat. Of course, I’m paler than Casper the ghost and I’m dish water blonde so the chances of my being able to pull of a pale yellow dress are virtually non-existent. It’s adorable as Hell up close though :)

The second one could be because I worked with it up close and personal :) It’s one of the chorus girls’ costume for the ‘Dancing Through Life’ party scene:

Pictures from backstage are limited at best since this was a job I really didn’t want to fuck up on. Here are some pics for ya’ll

You can’t be a flying monkey without wings (or a harness):

Skin doesn’t hurt either:
