Wow that's really awesome! I got to actually see the clothes and wigs in person and am planning to use them for wig making inspiration. ;)

I saw a production of The Country Wife a few years ago that used curled wood shavings to make the wigs. They looked amazing and did a great job of lasting a whole season on stage 6/7 nights. Oh the never ending wonder of human creativity! :)

Forget the wigs, I want that dress and the mans suit!
