When The Historic Artcraft Theatre showed the classic holiday musical White Christmas, Alena (a lifelong Danny Kaye fan) and Yaexrae enthusiastically replicated the dresses from the famous “Sisters” number and appeared onstage and in the lobby of the theatre for the event.

The dresses were patterned from scratch (inspired by Edith Head’s original designs) and feature full-circle skirts made of satin, organza and chiffon, embellished lace bodices, matching tulle petticoats, and a ridiculous number of sequins.

Fun fact: Due to multiple defective zippers (so far the dress has gone through three), Alena had to be sewn into her dress on the way to the performance.

Alena as Betty Haynes; Yaexrae as Judy Haynes.
