Guys and Dolls

Just got some exciting news this morning! As of today I'll be costuming for a local theater's production of "Guys and Dolls."

Poster for the 1955 film. This film was so gooooooood!
No, Franky and Brando will not be in this particular version, but I am super excited to be involved in such a fun production! With my love of all things vintage you can probably guess that I am very excited to be styling the cast of Guys And Dolls. I think I tried out for a part in the high school's production of this play when I was in the 8th grade. I did not make it in. Perhaps it is was for the best. I was only in Jr. High after all and my face is probably best for working behind the curtain.

So In celebration of my new position here is my favorite song from the whole musical; compliments of the 1992 revival cast of Guys and Dolls. Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat!

I'm not totally sure what the theater's policy on photography is (it's my first day you know), but I hope to be able to share some fun pics with all of you in the coming weeks. I'll force the new old camera into submission if I have to. I'm not above manhandling it.

Oh, and in case you all forgot what I am. Check out this awesome sticker someone gave me. Win.

Thanks everyone! I'm super excited! Most especially because the Director told me last night that she wanted this to be big, bold, and colorful! My favorite words. I'll see if I can't upload some pictures of the massive costume haul she had me take back to the house last night. I filled my car with vintage!
