LA Opera Costume Sale

This past Saturday, Bubble Punch woke up bright and early (for a weekend, anyway) to join the throng of costume-lovers down at the first ever Los Angeles Opera Sale. There were a slew of unique pieces available to buyers.. . if you had managed to get in line early enough, that is! It was obvious that costume designers from other theater houses were there to poach upon the unwanted goods… and they left with garments by the boatloads! Much to our horror, even though we had arrived early to the event, our place in line was waaaaaaay around the corner of the building.

Check out the madness!

Gloriously long line
