Why I chose to be Hamilton
I quickly fell in love with Hamilton after being introduced to the soundtrack in early 2016. About a month later I saw the research potential of what was happening. That's when I started watching videos and reading articles and seeing photos about and of the show. I was fascinated by the costumes. Being me, I immediately started wondering what it would take to make some of them. I knew it was going to take a lot of work and some luck to get good shots of the costumes.
This is the first outfit we see Hamilton in that sets him apart from the crowd. I would be stupid not to do it. Also, it's a great coat! I figured if I was already going to be working on the vest and have the leggings and boots, why not go for the coat?
