In the fall of 2009, I volunteered to BU's Calliope Project that I would be willing to make costumes for them for their mainstage show, Titus Andronicus. The drama is one of Shakespeare's earliest, bloodiest, and lesser-known shows. I had only an inkling of what I was getting into.
This was my first experience in designing and fabricating costumes more or less wholesale for an entire production with a decent size cast. Also the first time working in a theater setting where I was accountable to the vision of a director other than myself. I could not have done it alone, however, and I first met and worked with the lady otherwise known as "B" as my co-costumer for this show.
