D'Angelo resides in Poultney and operates her business there-the Uncanny Adventures in Comic Costume Creations.
Since childhood, she has been inspired by the lure of costumes.
D'Angelo graduated with a bachelor's degree in fashion merchandising and design from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She also attended one year at Dutchess County Community College.
"Marist is a college with an exclusive and extensive (fashion) program, where one can do internships with famous designers. I got to do mine with Donna Karan," she said.
Currently, D'Angelo is working on a project on a display for the California State Fair. "It's like a Hollywood theme. My booth goes on tour for a year," she said.
Check It Out: "The Tempest" will be performed July 30-31, Aug. 1, and Aug. 6-8. For more details, call Kitty Galante at 802-287-4270.
