Costumes, Headpieces & Props Galore!

I recently had the fortune to tour one of the largest costume warehouses in North America. Just imagine, aisle after aisle of costumes, props, masks & headpieces!!

The Stratford Festival (in Ontario, Canada) houses their collection in what looks like an aircraft hangar from the outside!


Inside, it seemed just as huge:


And then all the goodies inside! 


 Costumes, of course!

 
And masks!



Headpieces!

More headpieces!



Props & backdrops!


I loved the backdrops!


Especially, since most of them were finished using papier-mache!!





There even was faux food.


That looked pretty realistic!


Good thing it was time for lunch shortly after that.
But seriously, it was amazing to get this behind-the-scenes view of the Stratford Festival!
If you ever get the chance to take in a performance at the Festival or see some of the behind-the-scenes tours, don't hesitate!!
