Yesterday, I finally saw the musical of the Lion King, specifically the UK Tour. It was beyond exciting to watch for perhaps an ‘impressive’ reason. The costumes.
Or, rather, seeing costumes that I helped to make.
Scar cage, hyena tails, the leaves of one of the plants, bits for grass-hats…
I kept seeing more and more things. It was quite a while ago when I had a hand in making them and had forgotten about a few things, but just… omg. Seeing them all again was just amazing.
If anyone has seen any of the UK tour and has a programme, have a look for ‘Leigh Cranston’ under the costume list. That’s ‘me’ (ie. the guy I was working for).
