Anyone else feel like throughout the whole year, you have a bunch of ideas for your halloween costume, but you forget them all by mid-October? Is it just me?
To help me out, I took a trip to the costume atelier of the Opera de Montreal! I mean, it's definitely the best spot for inspiration. Every costume ever made by the OdM is hidden in the basement of Place des Arts...
Good thing I had some help from GeneviÃ¨ve Fortin! Or else I never would have found the perfect princess costume! This gorgeous (and heavy!) gown is from the 1998 production of La Cenerentola by Rossini. Can I get an Amen?
And the detailing that goes into each costume is insane!
What to wear to Zerlina and Masetto's engagement party!
I also stuck around for a fitting of Don Giovanni! John Giffen, who will be singing in the chorus of Opera de Montreal's next production, was nice enough to pose all mafioso!
We are also totally digging our opera friends who dressed up for Halloween!
Apparently, this is what I do best : Just trying on opera costumes for kicks and modelling them around. #thelife
And if all else fails, there are always Snapchat filters to help you out!
I am passionate about opera. I choose to see the best in the things around me. I make the most out of every situation. I am an enthusiast. I don't pretend to be a critic, and I certainly am no snob. These are my thoughts, highly influenced by too many high note vibrations and good wine.
