An opportunity to play around with fabric, flowers and feathers!
The North Canterbury Musical Society, wanting a new collection of Edwardian hats for its Costume Hire service, invited members along to a hat-decorating session.
Where to begin, when faced with a room full of trimming, swatches of fabric, old hats and ex stage props?
as well as dainty application.
As these are costume hats, achieving effect overides authentic construction, so hot-glue guns got things done quickly.
Bryony chanelled her inner Pirate in two hours,
And here's one fit for Lady Mondegreen to wear, or as the Wardrobe Mistress said, ' I could see Maggie Smith in that.'
This is a good time for a little shameless promotion of the North Canterbury Musical Society's forthcoming production of
Blood Brothers - in which Bryony plays Linda.
Since the indefinite closure of the Rangiora Town Hall in December, the show has hung in the balance. However, a new venue has been found and Blood Brothers opens for a two week season on 15 March at the Chervier Centre, Rangiora.
