When I think of big events in our harbor, I recall the Flight of the Snowbirds, Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, the Ancient Mariners Hobie Cat regatta and now Paddle for Privates. If I was going to use one word to describe this event, it would be "genius. " That word also holds true for founder Mandy McDonnell. I had a chance to talk with her over the phone this week and go over Saturday's Paddle for Privates costume paddle and learn a little more about this amazing person. Mandy grew up here in Newport Beach and went through the junior program at Lido Isle Yacht Club.

The owners of Muttropolis, the pet boutique at Fashion Island, have bad news for pets this month: chocolate and most other forms of Halloween candy aren’t good for cats or dogs, and trick-or-treaters would do well to keep their bounty out of reach. Otherwise, Muttropolis is hoping to let animals in on the fun this Halloween. The store’s Howl-o-ween Boo-tique features a number of costumes for pets, including Spider-Man hoodies, butterfly harnesses, pirates, devils and more.

Have you ever been to a Halloween costume party where nobody dresses up? Well, this ain’t one of them. Organizers of Un4seen Productions’ annual Halloween Yacht Party in Newport Harbor said one of the best, most surprising things they saw at last year’s party was just how many people got into the Halloween theme. “I can think of maybe 10 people I saw not wearing a costume. Out of maybe 400,” said Ryan Doll of Un4seen Productions. “I was blown away.

Jocelyn Cartwright has no desire to be onstage. She's too shy to be comfortable under a spotlight. Plus, there's the question of training. The Montello, Wisc., resident doesn't need to be on the front line hearing applause, though. As head of wardrobe for Troika Entertainment, her domain is backstage. Making sure the actors are in costume in time for their cues stimulates joy, she said, adding, "I'm helping them get to where they need to be. " Cartwright, 34, will travel from San Diego to Costa Mesa with the cast of "Sister Act" for a stop at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts from Aug. 6 to 18. The religion-based story is a spinoff on the similarly named 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg.

If you step into the costume storage room in UC Irvine's Contemporary Arts Center, you may think you've stumbled into the dry cleaners. The room, which became fully operational last spring as part of the building's renovation, stocks nearly 7,000 costumes on a massive ceiling rack. Punch a few digits into a computer at the bottom, and a formal gown, military camouflage or something more outlandish will hum right down. The collection represents years of painstaking craft at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, which uses its own in-house team to create costumes for drama, music and dance productions.

Actress Lynn Milgrim will step onto the main stage at South Coast Repertory on Friday night as Mrs. Carrie Watts. To inhabit the role of the protagonist in Horton Foote's "A Trip to Bountiful," Milgrim will don an old-fashioned lavender cotton dress. The play is about a middle-aged Texas woman traveling on a bus in the 1950s in search of her hometown in the American heartland. "A Trip to Bountiful" is a work of fiction, but the dress has a true story to tell that the SCR production won't reveal to audiences as it previews throughout the week and officially opens on Oct. 28. To help the actress bring Foote's story to life, at least five pairs of female hands formed an assembly line that designed and made the dress under a tight deadline.

Just four days after tickets to the Newport Beach Film Festival went on sale, the oft slow-moving "walking undead" proved to be among the festival's fastest-moving ticket buyers. A horde of fans dressed as zombies are expected to descend on the Starlight Triangle Square Cinemas on April 29 for the sold-out world premiere of comedy horror film "DeadHeads," said the film's co-director and co-writer Brett Pierce on Wednesday. "We're setting it up as a kind of a slogan that zombies are people, too," Pierce said of contacting a group in San Diego that organizes mass "zombie walks" to amp up the excitement of the night.

I've never associated South Coast Plaza with Halloween. Christmas, sure. Mother's Day, indeed. Birthdays, of course. But Fright Night, not so much. That was, of course, until I became a father and friends insisted that I take my daughter to Pumpkins and Pancakes, a fall fundraiser in its 19th year at the shopping center. The event is perfect for kids, they said, and the cause is a good one. Pumpkins and Pancakes benefits CASA, the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County, which serves abused, abandoned and neglected foster teens.
