P.S., Inc. & the Greenville Little Theatre Prop Room

Last night Portland Studios & Co. visited the Greenville Little Theatre and the folks there we kind enough to allow us to raid their fantastic prop room and gather all kinds of costumes for refrence.

The real allure of the prop room was the fact that they have everything... like props for The Jungle Book.

And new PS intern, Matt, as the rougish Winnie the Pooh.

Pooh from the Pit.

Actually, the Pooh bear costume was flat-out terrifying. It was missing one of the shiny plastic eyes and the crooked jaw only served to further enhance the effect.

The actual refrence photos we shot later that night are much more tame and much less feral. Top hats and funny coats for Chris Koelle's new project, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." Well, tame, unless you count the fact that in the story an orangutan goes on a killing spree and murders people and shoves a woman up a chimney.

Come to think of it, the actual photo shoot was not less tame or less feral. I think it was more so.
