As a costumer, John Faas has sewn for over 20 years, privately. Three years ago he began building recreations of professional theatre costumes as an artistic outlet. You may have seen some of his work being modeled by The Rubi Girls, John has costumed for Stebbins High School (briefly) while his husband was their theatre director. The crowning moment of John’s entire career was having the opportunity to meet his long-time idol, Jerry Herman (composer of Hello, Dolly, Mame, La Cage Aux Folles, Mack and Mabel, and many others) and legendary stage and screen actress, Carol Channing). You can see more of his fabulous designs on this gallery on his website.
Now with COVID-19 cancelling all local productions, Act II Costumes owner John has turned his sewing skills to producing face masks which are especially in demand now that the CDC recommendation suggests that all Americans wear them when out in public.
John’s masks are made from cotton and cotton/poly blends right here in his Dayton studio. These masks will be machine washable and reusable.
You can order your masks by sending $5.35 (for 1 mask) or $12.88 (for 3 masks) via his paypal (paypal.me/JohnFaas). Please include your name and contact information. Once your order is ready, he will let you know. W are taking all precautions due to quarantine guidelines.
PLEASE DO NOT JUST SHOW UP.
Due to quarantine guidelines, he cannot let anyone into the studio, so it is imperative that they know how to contact you so we can get your masks to you efficiently and safely. The studio is located above MJ’s on Jefferson at 24 N. Jefferson St., Dayton, Ohio 45402.
