The Taming of the Shrew – Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor as Katerina

As part of the 400th Shakespeare anniversary, the staff at work (public library) dressed as characters from Shakespeare’s plays. The costume I wore is courtesy of Swan Theatre, a local amateur dramatic society. It was a great excuse to dress as Katerina from The Taming of the Shrew. 

I am wearing the same white maxi dress underneath this as the red Jamaica Inn dress. It was a good find on

I went for a messy undone beehive. Big rollers, setting lotion and hairspray! I brushed out the curls but didn’t comb into a flick, separating waves out. If only my hair was a bit longer.
