Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

These Kimris costumes remind me that when we took over the act, Lee & henri gave us a set of White Satin suits that had at least 2" wide Rhinestone banding down the arms and legs. They weighed easily 30 to 35 lbs, one of our riggers jobs was to catch mine when I threw it down after stripping it off. Can you imagine catching 30 lbs. that has fallen 70 ft.
