A television series like Once Upon A Time employs dozens of people to 'make the magic happen' but it's fun to go behind the scenes and see what the set really looks like...


Remember now, although the shops and buildings look as if we could move right in, that the structures themselves are not insulated and usually have no heat or plumbing hook-ups, unless the space doubles as a cast change-room or bathroom; the buildings are beautiful little shells. The decoration, sign painting and dressing for the sets take so many hours, you wouldn't believe. They look wonderful, eh? Let's take another little tour and see a few costumes up close ...

... you may remember Costume Designer Eduardo Castro and his tour of the Costume Department ...

The shop and storage areas are amazing, aren't they? I'd love to go through it myself; but I'd also love to speak with the costumers, the stitchers, beaders, dyers and painters who created these wonderful costumes - wouldn't you?
