YouTube channel details!

Riley enjoys video content! (He can't read.) In part inspired by the pandemic forcing theatre and education to navigate streaming/digital delivery otpions, I'm experimenting with a video platform. For the foreseeable future, most of my new how-to and behind-the-scenes costume production content will be videos and streams on my YouTube channel , also called La Bricoleuse. There are also fun things like costume donation unboxings, movie trailers for my classes, and versus vids.  This blog will still feature book reviews, conference reports, and other content where a text article is more appropriate. Join me on YouTube and let me know what you think!
