Mama Tits – Mimosas With Mama!
“Mimosas with Mama” is Seattle’s Longest Running and #1 Weekly Drag Brunch. Mama Tits is the host and producer, and Scarlett has been her official costumer since early 2014.
Girl You Know It’s True
Scarlett was hired to costume the West Coast premiere of Girl You Know It’s True, which was produced by the Stay Up Late Show. “When Bixby, a 40-ish playwright, fails to get his work produced he conjures up a radical new identity for himself: an impostor. His stand in – an African American Lesbian in a wheelchair – instantly shoots to fame. Told in tandem with the Milli Vanilli scandal, the sharp comedy explores the true intent behind the act of creation.” The play ran at The Theater off Jackson from late March to early April, 2014.
Vixen Valentine Commissions
