There are many different costumes to choose from at the holiday season. Some costumes are inspired from Dr. Seuss books like How the Grinch Stole Christmas or Horton. These books have also been adapted into live-action films and staged during the holiday season. This is a great source of inspiration for holiday costumes for theater-goers. Many Broadway shows feature characters from these books, including Seussical!

Rita Ryack

Rita Ryack, a Ventura County Costume Designer, created the DIY Whoville costumes using the help of elementary students. The goal of the costumes was to look like authentic Whobilation outfits. In order to achieve this goal, she commissioned second-graders from Brookside Elementary School to create the designs. Ryack found inspiration in 1950s cookbooks and collected materials to create the costumes.

In addition to Rita Ryack, the movie’s production team included Don Peterman (director of photography), Michael Corenblith, and David MacMillian (editor, Oscar winner for Apollo 13). The film’s special effects team also created over 300 props, over 1,938 candy canes, and two million square feet of Styrofoam. Ryack also created 443 costumes.

Over 400 pieces were used to create the costumes for the movie. The production team also used foam rubber pieces for the noses of the Whos, giving them a prominent nose and a wide gap between the lip and nose. Many Whos also received fake eyebrows and ears. Rita Ryack’s original costumes are some of her most memorable creations.

Rita Osborne

You’ve found the right place if you’re looking to make a Rita Osborne DIY Costume. Tsypin’s designs combine reality and extreme 3D. In one costume, the Brooklyn Bridge towers over Mary Jane, and the back wall of the Chrysler Building is the city street below. Another view shows the doctor’s laboratory full of huge tubes and bridges.

Anneliese van der Pol

Anneliese van der Pol, the new Belle in the Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast, will start April 3. She will continue playing the role until the show closes on July 29. The musical is directed by Robert Jess Roth and has a book by Linda Woolverton, with a score by Howard Ashman and Alen Menken. The show has received nine Tony Award nominations and one win, for costume design. It opened its doors on April 18, 1994. It also stars Jeanne Lehman and Steve Blanchard.


Raven-Symone is a huge celebrity, but she still has a humble beginning. Lydia Pearman, her mom, is single. She and her dad separated when she was a teenager. Now, she lives with her mom and sister. The actress has dropped a few pounds, so she’s probably worth millions of dollars. In this photo, she’s wearing red satin shorts, a black jacket, and black hooker boots. Her mother is wearing green khakis. A distinguished gentleman, who looks like a man from the sixties, is accompanying her.
