Costume Couture


As a drama teacher and a lover of all things couture, when it comes to dressing up in costumes, I am in my element! I adore acting, performing, teaching, directing, presenting... anything that puts myself or my students in the limelight and I treat my style in the exact same way.
 I always like my outfits to be audience worthy, even if no-one shall ever see them but the mirror. 
I take every opportunity to get dressed up in costume as it gives me the chance to push fashion boundaries to the limits and wear clothing, make-up and styles that I could never and would never carry off in everyday life! 
Here is a short selection of a few of my favourite costumes over the last few years! 
You may not even recognize me in some of the pictures!
