I’ve designed costumes for 3+ decades, from elaborate theatrical pieces to detailed historical recreations. I’ve served as the resident costumer for a Shakepearean theater company, and I’ve created garments and headpieces for weddings, handfastings, and other celebrations. My design motto is “wear things on your head”; I’m sad that headwear has largely dropped from the language of attire. As a person with sensory processing challenges, hats, caps, and other toppers provide helpful proprioceptive feedback. So, I wear things on my head. And I encourage others to do so as well. #wearthingsonyourhead
