Nicolet College honors costume designer with exhibitSubmitted: 11/07/2013

RHINELANDER - You go to a play to see and hear a story.

But sometimes the costumes steal the show.

Now you can see some of those show-stealing costumes designed by a local costume designer.

Kay Anderson has been designing costumes for all Nicolet College community productions for the last 18 years.

She's worked on 36 shows and has spent a lot of time making costumes - as much as 30 hours for one outfit.

"I auditioned for a play and got into that cast and after that they found out I could sew. And so that's how it came to the costume designing," says costume designer Kay Anderson.

The most amazing thing is she's a volunteer and hasn't earned a cent for all that work.

But she's happy to do it.

"I think costumes make the character. A lot of times there's something that says something about the character to the audience. And so when you're designing a costume, you think about what that character is and what kind of costume they need to be wearing to be more of that character, to really represent that character to the audience," she explains.

Nicolet College has Anderson's costumes on display in its art gallery in the Learning Resources Center.

You can check them out until November 17th.

WISCONSIN - The DNR will make changes to how people register deer. This year they're starting a program allowing hunters to register deer online or by phone.

Only some hunters will take part in the program. Next year it will be in full effect.

"Right now we're doing a pilot program in 2014, where there's 14,000 people who've been picked to practice this registration. And next year everybody will be able to either register by phone or on the internet. They will still have the opportunity to register at a station as long as there is a telephone or a computer for them," says DNR Conservation Warden Paul Hartrick.
