Can we PLEASE take a moment to appreciate the goddamn AMAZING amount of craftsmanship that goes into making pro ballet costumes?
I MEAN …
COME ON PEOPLE!
GENUINELY FUCKING SPECTACULAR!
THE GORGEOUSNESS OF IT ALL!!!
Costume designers are some of the most awesomely skilled people on the planet and I feel like they very rarely get as much admiration as they deserve. Especially in ballet, because a lot of the time at least half the audience doesn’t get the chance to see how intricate and beautiful these pieces truly are. I want to thank the artists who put so much effort into making characters look amazing.
Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
