Stage Players: Samantha C. Jones
A short profile of costume designer Samantha C. Jones.
- I've always loved clothes.
It's always been a huge portion of my life.
And I am sneaky enough to try and connive a way
to do it for the rest of it.
I'm Samantha C. Jones, and I'm a costume designer.
I love a surprise.
I'm here for a surprise each and every time.
Jessie Mueller before she was famous.
There was a costume change I did a long time ago,
very quick change.
She had to get ready for like a date.
And I was like, if you can do this, it will be really funny.
These are some costumes we'll be using
for "Into the Breeches."
- Flown in from France!
- A collection of rentals,
vintage shop things, some thrifting.
Thrifting at 6:00 a.m. at a Unique Thrift is not easy.
It's not for the faint of heart.
Couple of things we have are from Kohl's,
and they just work.
You can really make yourself here
in the kinda like do your own thing,
become the artist you wanna be, choose your own pathway,
which sounds like a series of Instagram inspirational posts,
but it's still true. (laughing)
