New Year, New Show, New Start!


 As I write my last blog for 2K13, I can't help but feel so lucky and blessed for getting to work in a field I've always wanted to. With each new opportunity, I get to work with more talented and amazing and creative people. And as you can see in the latest addition, each new job is completely different with new challenges to learn but new opportunities for growth. I can't wait to see what 2K14 has in store for this girl on set!
Building the tutu layer by layer
Ever look underneath a tutu? The construction is intense.
Ok, what girl doesn't love a tutu. I've loved them since I was a young ballerina and I loved them when SJP rocked one on Sex and the City.  This November I got a call from my friend and costume designer Marianne Parker, Costume Director of the Los Angeles City Ballet, to come help with the costumes for the classic Nutcracker Ballet.
There was a lot to accomplish in a small amount of time. Repairs, steaming, mending, fittings, and building costumes from the start were just a few of the things to get done. Besides it being pretty magical to work on ballerina costumes, it was a great experience to work on the theatrical side of production.

My next project, "Boudoir," written and directed by Gina Ronhovde, is about a female photographer battling internal demons. Marianne Parker was the costume designer for this also, and the red lingerie she pulled for this couldn't have looked more beautiful on camera. I worked as the set costumer for this short film, and it was one long, exciting, thriller of a day.
 

I mean, how hot is Deneen?

Alaia at Saks 5th Ave
 When I work as an assistant costumer (or wardrobe PA), most of my day to day involves pick ups and returns at any and every mall/store/boutique in Los Angeles. I always like to take quick shots of inspiring displays I see while I'm putting around Beverly Hills.

 December brought along the good fortune of a new show! No, it's not "Men at Work," but I am working with the same extremely cool costume designer, Pam Chilton. I booked the TNT show "Franklin and Bash," which will start shooting in January. If you haven't been watching, F&B is on their 4th season and stars Mark Paul Gosselaar as Peter Bash (c'mon Zach Morris!) and Breckin Myer as Jared Franklin (Clueless was my fav but he's been in everything) as two comedic lawyers. Here's a tid-bit from the F & B website: Peter has a knack for connecting with jury and judge, while Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets. Despite their bad-boy antics, brash presentation and devil-may-care attitudes, Jared and Peter are good lawyers who are willing to do anything for a client, no matter who the client might be.
 Stay tuned for pics in 2014! We had one pre-shoot day in an auto garage in Culver City. Here's one of many gorgeous rides that will be featured in the new episode. Happy New Year!
