Coronavirus turned these costumers into Hollywood's 'mask crusaders'

The cast and crew members of Hollywood are suffering from the coronavirus social distancing mandates, but the costumers among them are contributing to the shortage of masks during the pandemic. It started when costumer Nickolaus Brown rallied 250 designers, sewers, and cutters to make masks on Facebook. When the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Union got involved, they produced 3,500 to 4,000 cloth masks for healthcare providers. Another group, called "Mask Crusaders,” has about 100 members and produces makeshift N95 masks. Both are working to grow their reach, quality, and production.
