Josi Russell

Josi Russell, founder of the Costume Bazaar in Milford, stands for a portrait with one of her award-winning creations, a sparkling Mardi Gras outfit that won a National Costumers Association award. Russell started the business in 1964 and got into sewing costumes by making suits for department-store Santa Claus' in her living room in New Haven.
