Yesterday Peter Pan learned to fly. So did Tinkerbell, Wendy, John and Michael.
21 days to go: So many things have happened this week already! As you can see in the video above. Monday the light-rig was set. And we got all the pieces of the set onto the stage, ready for: Tuesday and Wednesday the carpenters and technicians got up the flying-system and the complete set. No […]
The big final in the 4 elements project was a couple of weeks ago. Children from several kindergartens were gathered at the Vestnorske theatre-center to celebrate with a big party. So much fun to see all the costumes I made in use!
One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay.

So now it´s full force forward on the Peter Pan costumes! Luckily I am blessed with some absolutely wonderful friends. One of them, Nina helped me all day yesterday […]
