Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Rogers transforms everyday clothing into magical costumes with simple tools such as scissors, glue guns, and paint. In addition, there are chapters on how to make hats, gloves, armor, and animal heads, as well as other props and accessories from rummage-sale finds and a little imagination. All are accompanied by numbered directions, line drawings, and black-and-white photos, although novice costumers may find some of the directions too brief or obtuse. Still, this is a useful volume for schools and community theaters with little or no budgets for costumes and props. A listing of costume and accessories companies and a handy index subdivided by type of costume, prop, or accessory are appended.-Betty S. Evans, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
