About the Book:

Costumes, Accessories, Props, and Stage Illusions Made Easy shows you how to design and make costumes, props, and illusions that you never thought possible.

Transform common people into superheroes, movie stars, knights, witches – whatever illusion you want to create. Creative costuming is all in the details. One garment can take on many totally different looks depending on how you accessorize it. Successful costume designer Barb Rogers haunted thrift shops, rummage sales, and auctions in the hope of finding old clothes that could be converted into costumes. In Costumes, Accessories, Props, and Stage Illusions Made Easy she shows you all the tricks about how you can turn leftover clothing into over 100 costume designs.

The numerous photos and diagrams in Costumes, Accessories, Props, and Stage Illusions Made Easy explain in detail the costuming process of "turning straw into gold." You'll learn how to accessorize your show without starting from scratch. Great costume and accessory ideas covers:

• Full costumes
• Jackets and pants
• Costumes for children
• hats and headpieces
• masks
• collars, cuffs, and capes
• wings
• jewellery
• feet, shoes, and leggings
• and much more

The props section covers:

• armour
• thrones, crowns, and sceptres
• dinnerware
• and more

Finally, you'll love how her simple creativity can allow you to create illusions such as a head on a platter or a person riding a spider! Yes, you can easily do all this and at a minimum expense! Costumes, Accessories, Props, and Stage Illusions Made Easy is "must have" book for your library of costume ideas.
