The Travelling Theatrical Tour: Costume Department



It's apt that my tour should find its way to Simon Bestwick's blog today as I met up with the dude in Liverpool yesterday evening for another Twisted Tales event (more on that in another post). Today's post is another cautionary tale - The Travelling Theatrical Tour: Costume Department - on what happens to those who find employment in the theatre.

Simon's second novel 'The Faceless' is published next week by Solaris (I shall be haunting the postman until he brings my copy which according to Amazon is on the way). In the meantime, for those who can't wait, you can purchase his short story collection 'A Hazy Shade of Winter' (Ash-Tree Press). I'm reading it at the moment and it is delightfully chilling.

This theater play showcases a different, scary side of the stage; i.e. the costumes department. Its very intriguing since only a few of us truly know about the behind the scene actions in a theater.

It's amazing what creative minds can do with costumes to make a play alive. And it is more awesome that there are writers who make us of their broad imagination to make these costumes alive. I bet you don't need to specifically be in halloween costumes to be scary when we talk about the costumes department.
