"WE MUST RECYCLE!"
I believe in the transformational power of a fabulous costume!
In helping you look amazing, I hope to help you dust off your sense of fun and whimsy, empowering you to truly enjoy your life.
I am Julie Anderson, the costume designer and builder. I have been designing costumes professionally for fifteen years. My work has appeared in films such as Lucky Luke, and films for children, The Ugly Duckling and Handrew's Library. I designed and built costumes for music videos for Hank Williams, Jr., Pam Tillis and many others. My costumes have also appeared in television programs, such as Lazarus Man. I have designed and built costumes for dozens of theatrical and dance productions, including The Nutcracker Suite, Queen Elizabeth I, Tom Jones, The Tempest and A Christmas Carol. Recent productions include King's Yellow in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and two productions in Branson, Missouri: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Celebrate America!
My mission is to help people remember how to have fun and tap in to a sense of whimsy and wildness. I have designed and taught workshops in mask-making, costume-building, costume transformation and giant puppet head construction, to name a few. I am a regular Artist-in-Residence at the Summer Solstice festival in Santa Barbara, and frequently lend my talents to local and national "good works" and charities.
