My Zolovka, the Artist

My sister-in-law, a former costume designer for film and TV, is the craziest mad genius, what with the portraits she does of people’s homes using their own memorabilia, and how her talents are put to use at the Russian school and dance recitals. All the children of the Lands should be so lucky as to have a Natalya in the wings.

See more Russian kids’ costumes here, including those made by other parents, most if not all designed by my beloved золовка. Love the Sun and Moon executed by Marina Bagrova! Don’t miss Natalya’s stunning sketches of the costumes as they appeared in her noggin, before their worldly realization, at the end of this version. Quick, before that page changes!

  1. Wow, how beautiful! Is that all one ballet? I didn’t realize The Firebird had such an elaborate story. And is this local or in Russia? You said “the Russian School” but I wasn’t sure. Hope winter is treating you right!
