Stock UAF costumes, & bits of clothing from my closet I hoped to recycle | History of Fashion Design

Stock UAF costumes, & bits of clothing from my closet I hoped to recycle

Stock Costumes & Fabric I hoped to incorporate into the show: I was working on designing and making this show for less money than it would take to rent a very low grade version of the show.  This is not due to my evil Dept. Chair (I AM the Dept. Chair) but due to the reality of our total show budgets for the year all having to be generated from ticket sales in our small town market.  Being without the usual subsidized budget of many universities, we often shift our designs to avant garde themes that make the costumes/sets cheaper, but Liaisons, we all agree needs to look very “real” and very rich…but on the smallest budget possible.  So I raided every part of my basement, the UAF stock, Value Village, etc. to find existing textiles that might be used to make this rich look for less money.  I took lots of those fabrics one buys with the idea “I’ll make something for me later” and never actually sews, and sacrificed them to the Liaisons gods. I also hoarded decorative vests in stock for years by buying them whenever they were cheap at thrift stores.  The reason I took photos of all this stuff was #1, to be able to view them at home while I was drawing my renderings and so plan things better, and #2 to show these fabrics and costumes in their unmodified form so viewers can compare them in before and after states.  I’ve left up images of the textiles I gathered even when in many cases they weren’t used, so you can see how the whole process of pulling and selecting worked out.
