Hello all and welcome.  I feel like there may be some new folks joining us tomorrow.  Just read and follow the instructions and you'll know what to bring.

Everyone should read the instructions and come dressed in your first, best option based on the descriptions and bring other options with you so that we can look them over.  Bring all of your clothes in with you when you check in.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CLOTHES IN THE CAR!!!  

Some of you are being asked to play more than one role.  Please read the descriptions for each role and bring options for all the roles that you are playing.  Again, bring everything with you for the day, as we will be making those choices at the beginning of the day.

All school kids please see that there is a general note for all of you first, then a separate note each for the Guys and Girls. Please read everything carefully and follow all instructions to the best of your ability.

COLTON PREP SCHOOL KIDS should come dressed in your choice of a blue, white or yellow long sleeve button down shirt.  Boys should wear either well fitting tan khaki pants or well fitting navy blue pants.  Nothing to big and baggy, please.  Girls should wear either a tan khaki or navy blue, knee length skirt or tan or navy knee length walking shorts.  The following items should also come with you:

COLTON PREP SCHOOL GUYS should all bring a navy blazer & ties to wear with their uniform.  The school colors are blue, yellow and white.  Ties can be these colors, but they do not have to be.  Striped and plaid ties are especially good because the look young and preppy.  In addition to the blazer you may bring other items in the school colors such as hoodies, rugby shirts, cardigan sweaters and V Neck sweaters.  These items do not have to be solid.  They could have stripes, plaids, etc.
Shoes should be closed toe loafers, bucks, boat shoes, lace up shoes, etc. NO ATHLETIC SHOES OR SNEAKERS.

COLTON PREP SCHOOL GIRLS should all bring a navy cardigan.  In addition you may also bring other items in the school colors that will spice up your outfit.  For example; argyle sweaters and sweater vests, yellow cardigans and V Neck pullovers, hoodies in navy, yellow or grey, neck ties or ribbons for your blouse, socks that will match your uniform, etc.
Shoes should be closed toe loafers, bucks, flats, boat shoes, etc.  NO ATHLETIC SHOES OR SNEAKERS.

Please bring your school bag to use as a prop.  It can be a backpack, satchel, book bag or whatever you carry your school books in.  This is a private school so the bags should not look ratty or too worn.  Also, they cannot have large logos or artwork that is recognizable.  If you don't have a bag to bring, don't worry, the Props Dept will lend you one of theirs.

COLTON PREP SCHOOL TEACHERS should all look as good and professional as the students described above.  Women should bring options of long sleeve dress blouses, knee length skirts, cardigans and light weight jackets, knee length dresses and shoes that work with all your options.  Think J Crew, Brooks Bros, Banana Republic, Ralph Lauren & Ann Taylor.
Men should bring options of long sleeve dress shirts, ties, suits sports coats and slacks or khakis.  Think Brooks Bros, J Crew, Banana Republic.  Don't forget the shoes that will work with these clothes.

PARENTS should all wear and bring options of nice casual to include khakis, slacks/skirts, long and short sleeve nice casual tops, cardigans and light weight jackets.  This look is more Country Club.  J Crew, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic.  You are dropping your kids off at a Prep School, after all. :-)  Just keep the look a bit more neutral and not quite as bright as golf clothes.

TRAFFIC MARSHALLS should wear a pair of navy dress slacks (black will do if you don't have navy) and bring a pair of black shoes and black socks.  Also a white undershirt.  The Costume Department will give you a shirt.

SURVEILLANCE VAN DRIVER  should wear and bring options of dark clothing to include:
dark long sleeve button front shirts
dark long sleeve pullover shirts
dark sports coat
dark light weight jacket
jeans and dark pants
black shoes and belt

SOLDIER & SECURITY GUARDS  will be given a uniform by the Costume Dept.  Please bring a white crew neck undershirt and black socks.

CAMERAMAN / SOUND MAN / MEDIA CREW  should wear and bring a mix of dark clothing to include non-ripped dark jeans, dark cargo pants, dark slacks, dark long and short sleeve pull over shirts, dark long and short sleeve button front shirts, dark hoodies, dark vests and light weight jackets and dark sport coats.  These could be black, grey, navy, dark brown, etc.  This is a layered, more casual look.  Don't forget the dark shoes and belts to go with your options.

SECRETARY TYPES  should wear and bring dark business suits, skirts/slacks and long sleeve blouses, basic shoes (nothing that would be worn to a club), conservative, simple jewelry.

Thanks to everyone in advance for reading the blog and bringing all the great stuff.  The more options you are able to bring, the better we can make you all look.  We look forward to seeing you on the set!
