Dollar Store Showpony costuming workshop

The second of a 2-part workshop! Class 1 meets on Tuesday, June 11th

A unique and fabulous costume doesn’t need to cost a bundle - you can use materials and objects from your local dollar & discount stores to create truly one-of-a-kind standout pieces! In this two-session workshop dollar-store denizen Nasty Canasta will teach you how to combine discount-aisle finds with the craft and sewing supplies already in your stash to build and embellish stageworthy costume pieces … or a crowd-stopping outfit for this year’s Mermaid Parade!

In class one you’ll learn the theory of innovative costuming on a modest budget, including what to shop for and how to use it. Class two is a hands-on, step-by-step how-to on building the base for and embellishing your own original fancy-ass showpony headdress.
