I've seen Saffron's work, and it is beautiful. (Sue Blane apparently thought so too at the Transylvania 99 convention.) She has a BA (Honors) in costume and worked in the costume department of the Birmingham Rep. Theatre, with the staff who made the costumes for the Silver Jubilee Tour. As of March 2003 she is working as a Costume Mistress on a BBC1 soap opera. She does costumes from the film and from the current UK tour. Costumes she made won best Frank and best Columbia (Show-accurate) at Transylvania 99, and best Magenta (maid's dress) and Space at the 25th Anniversary.
