10am Sunday, April 29th2012. Location: Abracadabra SuperStore in New York City. A professional backstage team came together for a 10-costume event. I had the pleasure of casting, producing and supervising this event. Makeup was meticulously themed for each model and wigs replaced their true hair.
Dressers came together like worker-bees, matching the models to the look-descriptions on the backstage model cards. From station to station I went, answering questions and making sure my backstage team received proper care.
Each model was escorted to the photography room, where five camera lenses zoomed in for a series of shots that will ultimately make it to the merchandise floor as a product label cover for Abracadabra designs.
Each costume represented an iconic or popular figure: Angel, Catwoman, Cleoprata, Goddess, Marie Antoinette, Mermaid, Nurse, Princess, Senorita and Witch.
The best part of the event, aside from participating in a joint effort, was establishing new friendships and keeping in touch with current friends.
(All costumes listed are available for rent with exclusive accessory and makeup offers). Inquire Within: Abracadabra SuperStore, 19 West 21st Street (Between: 5-6th Avenue) New York, NY 10010. (212) 627-5194.
