Costuming Workshop!



We are having a costuming workshop this Sunday, March 12 in Chamberlin Hall, Room 2104 at 12:00 p.m.

Work on costumes you can wear at practice or for the spring show if you still need to work on them!

We will provide the materials you need to make hipscarves, but if you wish to make a top, you will need to provide your own base (i.e. a bra, one size up from your normal cup size).
