Costumes, Costumes, EVERYWHERE!

Working with Silk Fabric

Oh lord!  Costume College is just around the corner.  Which means I am jumping both feet in to the sewing storm in preparation.  First up, have to finish the vest for my Steampunk outfit.  And I should have had this outfit done for the Steampunk Convention in March, but time got away from me there, leaving me with a half finished project.  Luckily, the theme of the High Tea at costume college is…STEAMPUNK!  Which means I just need to finish this vest…

Next, I have to figure out how to paint lekku…and me.  I have the pants for my Imperial Assassin, sort of.  Need to shorten the legs a bit, turn them more in to knee pants.  And I have to make the top and half cloak.  And thanks to American Duchess, I also have the shoes!

Also have to make dresses for day wear for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, then decide which will be the outfit for the Friday night social.  I may or may not be in 18th Century that night.  Sort of depends on how the rest of the sewing escapades go.  Whatever I wear, it will be Silk!  It’s exhausting just looking at the list, and one would think that two months is plenty of time.  One would think.

But one is also trying to run a company, start another company, further one’s studies, LEARN ALL THE THINGS!  And help friends, walk ones dogs, spend time with the boyfriend, work a day job, clean the yard…. You guys know how life gets in the way of what you’d rather be doing.  Which is why blog posts with updates will be so very important!  If I have to report here, I might actually stay on track and get all the things done that need to be done.  It’s a thought, at least.

How am I doing? Am I helping? Am I dead wrong? Let me know!
