Things to come

I have been crazy busy. Pretty much since June. I have no time to breathe or live or relax it feels like. I started Arsenic and Old Lace before Urinetown was closed. I have been acting in both, costume designing both, and for Urinetown I was the Stage manager and graphic artist. Arsenic was also involved, and having to learn lines like crazy. I have three callings in church. I have work (which I hardly have time to do.) But I am determined to enjoy Halloween this year. I always get so busy this time of year sewing for other people and doing other things I never do anything for myself and I'm forced to dress up like something I have lying around. (Actually, what I have lying around is pretty cool, so I'm really lucky.)
Anyway, This year I vowed I was goign to have an awesome costume.
So I got started. I've cut it out and I'm sewing. But the other night I made the hat. So here is a preview of my costume to come. I love millinery work! feathers! ribbons! Jewels! Wire! Anything you want!
So here you go: Creation 1! Just a preview of the costume to come!
