*Cough* *Cough* *Hack* *Hack*
I’ve returned to the living from the land of the lung-funk! :) Sorry for being so absent from this blog!
As some of you know, I was the costumer for a recent production of RED.
It was awesome, y’all! :)
The play centers around painter Mark Rothko’s two-year struggle to complete a lucrative set of murals for Manhattan’s exclusive Four Seasons restaurant, and his fraught relationship with a seemingly naïve young assistant . Sadly, you can’t see it, as the production only ran one weekend and is now gone.
However, I needed something cute to wear for opening night! I chose this hot numba!
We are in some serious polyester granny dress territory here, folks! :/ The length is awful, the sleeves are poufy, and what’s up with that v-neck bib thing?
There were several changes to make before I hurried off to the museum for my big opening!
First, I got to cutting!
I decided to keep the v-neck bib thingy attached, but made it a muuuch deeper v, so it looks more like a collar. :)
Deepening that V!
And now it is gone!
I pinned all my raw edges down, and ran them through my machine!
Securing that collar!
And just like that, I was ready for my big premiere! :)
from granny to gorgeous! :)
Hello there! :)
I’m really happy with this one! I love the stripes, the flowy sleeves, and that fun collar! :)
Larry the director likes it too! :)
Larry, my fella thinks it’s pretty swell as well! ;)
It’s me! :)
Here are some pics from the show (actually, the last dress rehearsal). Please forgive me for the shoddy photo quality, as these were taken with my humble tablet cam! :/ I’m glad I thought of bringing it though, as I haven’t seen any other pics from the show yet!
