Practically Immortal

Costume Design & Construction



Written and produced for the inagural Tallulah Bankhead Tribute in Jasper, AL, Practically Immortal is a one-"woman"-show written by Mel Christian, and performed by Chuck Duck. To help bring Tallulah to life, I designed, patterned and created a blue silk bias cut dress, based on a dress that Mel had fallen in love with. In the end, I had to agree. She was perfect.
