The first time I made a spellbuzzed costume, I thought it looked like something from the movie My Own Private Idaho, except for the fact that the costume looked a lot like the one from the show My Own Little Pony.
I couldn’t figure out how to replicate the look, so I just went back to my high school costume designer to ask for help.
“She told me to create a character based on a character from a television show I had seen on my local news,” said Emily Simeone, the costume designer for the Spellbound Acrobatic Troupe.
“I wanted to create something that was a little bit different.”
After months of trial and error, Emily created a character that looked almost identical to the one that would later become the main character of My Own Personal Idaho.
“It’s a really fun costume to create,” she said.
The costume includes a long skirt and thigh high boots, a cape, a hood and a bow tied in a bow.
The costumes are designed for two to four people.
“You’re probably going to need a lot of materials,” said Simeon.
“Some people want to use a lot more than that.
They might use the same material as the ones that you’re going to wear, but they’re going be wearing something different.”
The costumes have a lot going on.
“The costumes come in two different lengths,” said Melissa Mabrey, a costume designer at Spellbound.
The two costumes that Emily created for the group cost about $150. “
When you’re working on your costume, you’ll probably want to add accessories that you wouldn’t normally wear, such as a bow, hat or a scarf.”
The two costumes that Emily created for the group cost about $150.
“Each costume has its own set of instructions and tools, so you can make a costume of any size and be confident you have the right materials and skills to make it work,” said Mabry.
Emily also designed two costumes for the troupe to wear on stage, one of which is made from scratch and the other is a high-quality photo print.
“We wanted to make sure that the photos matched our costumes,” she explained.
“Because of the way the photos are printed, the colors and shapes are different from each other.
So we were able to adjust the color and pattern to make our costumes look like what we wanted them to look like.”
The costume for the high school teacher that Emily designed cost about a thousand dollars.
“There are lots of other costumes that can be created for people who want to wear them,” she added.
“They’re also good for parties or to go out in the street.”
Mabries costume also comes with a few items that are only available to members of the Spellbuzzing Club.
“As a member of the club, we don’t need any of the items that we make,” said Matt Pomeroy, a member who has been a Spellbuff for eight years.
“But if you want to join the club you can get these things that are made by us.
We make a lot.”
The members of Spellbud are members of several organizations including the New York Times Bestselling Authoritarian Review, which supports writers of color.
“One of the reasons we started was because we needed a way to support the people who are writing the best books for us,” said Pomeroys daughter, Danielle Pomeros.
Danielle Pomers book, The Art of Being White, is the best seller of the year.
“All of the things that the book does, like the history of the genre, are written by white people,” she told the Financial Post.
“And we wanted to support them.”
The Costume of the Day That’s right, the Costume of The Day.
This week, Emily Simes costume designer and member of Spellbound, Melissa Mibrey made a costume that looks like the classic character of the Disney classic film.
“Emily wanted to show that she was a black woman making a costume out of her own hair,” said Stephanie Krawetz, who designed the costume for Emily.
“That’s the inspiration behind the costumes.”
Stephanie KRAWETZ is the costume design for Spellbound and Melissa Mabbrey.
She’s a member since 2012.
The spellbound costume is made out of a mixture of cotton and rayon fabric, a stretchy polyester that’s used for various things.
Stephanie also designed a few other costumes for Emily, but the majority of them are made from materials she’s found in her closet.
“My favorite thing about working with Emily is that she’s really a creative person,” said Krawetz.
“Whether it’s creating a costume or making something with her hair, she really likes to create and explore different ways of doing things
