From 2013 performance of the Nutcracker Ballet by Coasting Along Theatre Society, Sechelt, BC. Imaginative sets painted by Cody Chancellor.

I made these lilac Mirliton costumes in 2012. It's lovely to see them each year as the cast and dancers grow ever more accomplished in their ballet and en pointe work.
