I can make a positive post. I can!

Thanks to everybody who commiserated on yesterday's wedding ring disappearing act. I'm still bummed today, but not so much with the mopey.

I'm a little behind where I want to be on Seven Out costumes, but not critically so. The only thing I feel bad about is not getting Jenn the mockup of the striptease dress and the modified undies so she could rehearse with them sooner. I was hoping to have them done way before this -- as the choreographer pointed out at rehearsal last night, she's never taken her clothes off in front of people before, and I wanted to minimize the stress on her as much as possible. Alas, here it is almost tech week and she hasn't been able to work with them. Bad, bad costume designer.

I do think she'll be pleased with the real dress when I get it to her (hopefully Sunday for load-in), tho. She's going to look phenomenal, which will hopefully help the stress somewhat. Vogue doesn't have the pattern on their website, so I scanned the view I'm using:



Just the dress, not the stole, but she does have looooong black satin gloves. (Hooray for shops catering to the drag queen market!) The color is actually the same, but hers is a floral brocade. Lining it in black taffeta, and the slit will be higher on her thigh. Having too much fun with the engineering -- boning and buckram and snap tape, oh my! It's pretty solidly constructed, but still has to come off in a few beats of "Fever".

Meanwhile, still need to find a few assorted wardrobe pieces, including the Mob Boss Hat. I'll get there, but I do admit to wishing I didn't have to get it done around 1984 performances, just 'cause it'd be easier.

After next weekend? No new commitments until after the Great House And Moving Process is accomplished. No exceptions.

Your corset is brocade, right? This is the same stuff, but in red. It got discontinued a couple years back, and I cleaned out several JoAnns of every color I could get my hands on. :-)

Hi, Val, this is Krishni. The dress is gorgeous. Would you mind if I added you to my friends page? I just got this journal, and I'm reconnecting with some lost ties.

Krishni! {pounce!hug}

Welcome to the crackhouse. ;-)

Would you mind if I added you to my friends page?

Of course not. I assume I can do the same?

Of course. I'm not very interesting right now, though I may find something good to say soon.
