Holy tap-dancing elves!
In 2015 we made a bunch of custom elf boots plus some elf SPATS for Ohio production and costume designer Inda Blatch-Geib. She designed the new production, Kris Kringle the Musical, which premiered Friday, December 4th 2015 in Olmsted Falls.
The lead dancer’s wearing elf boots. The rest are SPATS worn over their tap shoes!
Great assistant and good helper elf, Peri C. showing off our hard work!!
A visitor is unexpectedly asked to model some boots in progress-
Definitely as awesome as they sound.
Sometimes all a costume needs are the final detailed additions– in this case, new POCKETS!
Heroically, two pairs of khaki trousers sacrificed themselves to become the new pockets and dropseat we added to Bill’s existing coveralls. Now he is the essence of “Barf” from Mel Brooks’ hilarious Spaceballs film.
Thanks, Bill for having us make your new pockets and for sharing your photos.
May the schwartz be with you!
