Sunday August 25th was a day full of make up appointments, costume fittings and photographs! This was our day to do photographs of Clara & her best friends and all the Queens for our marketing and PR for season. Make up is individually designed by Chanel Molleo our make up artist. Chanel matches each Queens make up with the color of their tutu. For example: The Sugarplum Fairy has eye shadow of Plum, The China Queens tutu is bring pink so her eye shadow was a vibrant hot pink to match her tutu…the make up was bright and colorful just like the Land of Sweets in the Nutcracker….
Mark Szatkowski from Modern Pictures has been photographing Claras, and Nutcracker Queens for almost 20 years. The day started at 9:30 and and the last photograph was taken at 5:30 pm. It was the first day we saw all the 2019 Queens and Clara in their full costumes. There were even a few tears when the mothers saw their daughters for the first time in full make up and their professional tutus.
