Spring Bomber
04/15/16 Spring has got to be my favorite season of the year. Not only because my birthday falls in April but because of what it signifies – a rebirth from the cold Winter season. Flowers start to bloom as the snow melts, the sun shines brighter as the days get longer, and of course, fresh fashion trends start to emerge. It’s a time of renewal – out with the cold and in with the new. People start to do some Spring cleaning in their homes, including cleaning out the closets full of drab, dull colored Winter clothing.

Thankfully, this time around, there is plenty of work in the city, which is pretty much why it’s deemed “the Hollywood of the North”. So, I found myself diving in the “not so glamorous” film industry in B.C, as a costumer. And I stress”not so glamorous” because everyone, including me always thought it was. If you think 16 hr days in upredictable weather and lugging racks upon racks of clothing is glamorous, then kudos to you. It may actually sound dreadful but I actually love it. The upside to this is the great pay, meeting all sorts of interesting characters from cast and crew; and I get fed well – all day long. With the unpredictable weather, […]
