Clockwork costume update

Mini!Reinette is done, and will be given to Elf on Thursday night, so she'll have it in time for Halloween. *bounce*

My stays are assembled and boned. Need to clean house today too, but hopefully will get the edges bound and at least some of the grommets installed today.

Mask has arrived and has had two coats of antique white paint applied. Now it just needs the detailing, the crackle coat, and ties.

Next up: Pocket hoops. For which I might need to order more boning, as I used up most of my supply of good plastic "whalebone" in the stays. I think I may have ordered some bulk spring steel boning along with some precut steel stays a while back, but I'm not sure. Must investigate. And then see if I want to mess with cutting and tipping the steel for this project.

If Farthingales ever went out of business, I would be so screwed. I'm sure you can get this stuff elsewhere, but it's the most convenient one-stop shop I've found.

CT-minus 34 days and counting.
