You put your fishnets on one leg at a time, right? And then you reach for the top hat? So will our talented actors, thanks to “Buy Some Knickers for A Floozy,“ our Kickstarter project that’s just gone live. We’re asking for pledges to fund our costume budget for Under the Poppy onstage, coming to the Chrysler Theatre at the Detroit Opera House in early 2011. The costumes will be a wonderful amalgam of Victorian, punk, Romantic, gothic style, as created by award-winning designer Monika Essen.
Kickstarter is a fun platform to use – you can tell we had a good time making that video – and our premiums are meant to be fun, too: everything from scratch’n’sniff cards to signed prints of the gorgeous costume sketches to a signed copy of Under the Poppy. So if you want to have a share in the good times, come on over to Kickstarter and pledge $10, $25, or go wild and buy a whole costume for $500. It’s like playing dress-up with real live people!
