Xanadu Costumes

Alright, it’s time to start thinking Costumes. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the various types of costumes. I am going to list by character type or specific characters and say what you need to provide and what we have or will make/purchase for a character. Please email me if you have any questions.

Clio/Kira: We will provide both costumes. You will need black jazz shoes.
Sonny Malone: Let’s talk and see what we can figure out.
Danny: A suit. If the costume closet has one that fits we can use that otherwise you will need to provide.

Muses: Please provide a tasteful lyrical dance dress (or something creatively similar) in the color next to your character name. Dresses should not have short skirts. Some examples can be found at the following links. You can order one of these, use one you may have or find one that you like better. Depending on what you find you may need to also wear a leotard/tights. I certainly don’t mind creativity but I don’t want anything too elaborate. The color should be the part that stands out. You will need black jazz shoes
This one’s ok but I would prefer a dress that isn’t a halter Perhaps with a bolero sweater
A print is fine as long as it fits with the theme
Good example
Try to keep the color in the jewel tone range. I want to avoid pastels.
Erato: yellow
Urania: royal blue
Polyhymnia: aqua
Euterpe: pink
Melpomene: purple
Thalia: orange
Terpsichore: white
Calliope: green

Andrew Sisters: I am looking for matching costumes so stay tuned for the final decision.

The Tubes: All black. You can wear anything a bit punk rock as long as there are not logos or prints. Black pants, black skirt, black t-shirt or black tank top (no skinny straps) and a funky printed bandana. I suggest trying thrift shops.

All Greek Gods: We will make bed sheet togas. You will need a white t-shirt for male characters and a white tank top (no skinny straps) for female characters, a white bed sheet and either white pants for male characters or white leggings for female characters. You will also need gold sandals. I will provide accents.

Medusa: A Black bedsheet, black leggings, and black tank top (no skinny straps) I will make your wig and provide accents.
Centaur: White t-shirt and white pants/leggings. I will make your horse legs.
Cyclops: Brown pants and brown long sleeved t-shirt. I will provide the mask.
Hermes: White t-shirt, white pants, white bed sheet. Gold sandals to attach gold wings to. I will find a winged helmet.

Sirens: I am looking for matching dresses for you. I will let you know ASAP if we need to go in another directions. Black Jazz shoes.

Greek Chorus: I want you to be creative and think 80’s. I just ask that you keep the colors in a pastel range. The Greek Chorus should contrast with most of the other characters so you stand out. I have put together a Pinterest board with clothing and color ideas.
