Composer Bust Costumes for the Martha Stewart Show

Invited to be members of the audience for the 2008 Martha Stewart Halloween Special, broadcast LIVE from her New York Studios, myself and my 3 guests had only one requirement: we must come dressed as statuesInitially this requirement might sound easy enough, but if you really think about it, most any figure can be a statue if they remain completely still. This makes it harder to be clear that your costume is a statue without visual clues like monotone coloring, etc… or you are a famous statue, like the “Statue of Liberty”, etc… I knew those costumes would be taken by others in the studio audience for sheer popularity. I have a particular fondess for the sort of creepy bust statues you find in a Disney Haunted Mansion, etc…, so I came up with this original concept for us to be 4 famous composer busts.
Learn how you can be a bust statue here!
Preparing for the appearance, 2 of the eventual 4 composer busts costumes were finished around 4 am, when a song came on that Kevin knew all the words to. This video was completely spontaneous.
