Hannah K. Davis replied to Steven's discussion Costume pockets for wireless mic packs in the group Wardrobe and Dressers
"I agree, coming from a wardrobe perspective, mic belts are easier to use, and if you're worried about the elastic loosening, add more velcro or multiple bar rows. They are easier to access, and much easier to clean. But please make them out of…"

Richard T. Young replied to Steven's discussion Audience Recording Preformances

BAM Creative Arts replied to Steven's discussion Using Valuable Antiques as Props? in the group Scenery and Props
