CHILDREN OF EDEN: What do I look like as Seth?

Okay, sure...

Here I am as Seth (while holding the Staff of Adam) in the Theatre Guild of Rockingham County's production of Children of Eden:

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you: that is a good part of my Jedi Knight costume! I'm also playing a Storyteller and we needed something to differentiate me when I appear as Seth at the end of Act I. Children of Eden's costumer Kathy Morrison and I were talking about what we could do, and I mentioned that I had a Jedi Knight getup and then... click! I brought it in the next night and she worked over the next few days adding some color to the tabard and waist sash.

That is also the very first time in well over 25 years that I have worn sandals. Most of the time I wear sturdy leather hiking boots, either that or tennis shoes. It kinda goes against my attire philosophy to look like this. Yeah, just one of many personal quirks that most people don't know about. But hey, how many people in antediluvian days wore hiking boots? It kinda reminds me of the line that Kent Brockman once had on The Simpsons: "Authorities say the phony Pope can be recognized by his high-top sneakers and incredibly foul mouth." Anyway, I wanted to be in Children of Eden, so here's my chance and it's a small enough sacrifice :-)

The rest of the time in Act I I'm wearing the same outfit minus the kimono, tabard and sash. There's a blue vest that I put over the tunic in Act II 'cuz that's the more colorful period. Speaking of the tunic: it's hard to walk in that thing! I've a pretty long gait and it's becoming something to trip over. But so far, I haven't fallen (and I'm knocking on wood as I type this).

Maybe more pictures later tonight!

I cater a lot of the time in a bistro apron. I had to get used to it but I like it now. One of the first times I wore it I tripped going up stairs. Break a leg!
