Emotional Baggage Costume Designs

North Salinas High School Theatre

IMG_9294 My students are so incredibly modest. I knew they would churn out some brill designs, and boy, did they ever! Here’s the process we followed:

  3. Pick your favorite character and complete your questionnaire.
  4. Get a body template.
