Nicolet College honors costume designer with exhibitSubmitted: 11/07/2013
Story By Lauren Stephenson


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.

LINCOLN COUNTY - WARNING: Some of the above video is disturbing

The DOJ released video taken from the squad car footage, police scanner traffic, and a 911 call that helps explain what happened that night.
