The ballet was this weekend and the costumes were fun.
The king is wearing his fuzzy, sparkly vest and is fastening the cape/shower curtain around his neck.
This is the evil sister and her "reflection". I made the skirts. The top layer is a black satin train with narrow red bias tape for edging. I love creating costumes and seeing the results.
The king is played by an Astoria Coast Guardsman, Mark Newkirk, who also appears in "Coast Guard Alaska" reality show.
