Orange County ASG Annual Meeting 10/17/20 10:30 - 12:30
No driving on the freeway. No parking hassle. No uncomfortable shoes. Although our in-person annual meeting has been postponed, we will be having a Zoom meeting with a speaker. Did I mention that it is free? Well, it is. Order take out and enjoy it in your jammies at home. Our speaker and meeting information has arrived.
The very talented Sara Bacon will be presenting via Zoom a presentation entitled, "Adventures in Motion Picture and TV Costuming"
Sara Bacon is a Stitcher in the Motion Picture Costumers Local 705, a later-in-life career that she loves! She explains her progression from tutu maker to Star Wars and Star Trek; as well as her advice if you are looking for a similar career on the sewing side (Custom Made), or wardrobe management (Finished Costumer). You’ll laugh and cry over her stories of repairing wool uniforms permeated with sand, the dog who ran away with a superhero’s elbow, and how a sleeping bag is essential equipment for making a wedding dress.
To get an idea of her work, follow the link below to a an article and 3-minute video done by The LA Weekly online a few years ago. https://www.laweekly.com/gorgeous-ballet-tutus-emerge-from-a-womans-flying-fingers-video/
