So left to do:
sew on sleeves
sew on hook & eye above zipper
tie off threads
re-enforce at skirt split
trim hem of doom
hem train of doom
let B do the beading
cut, sew & finish chiffon under sleeves
same for under skirt
figure out what I’m doing for shoes!!
I'll be working on the under sleeves and underskirt on Friday. The darling dancinseamstres is going to let me use her serger - yay no rolled hems! That should save me about a week of work. I love you Brooke! The Fire costume is turning out to be the "it takes a village" project. More proof that costumers (and sisters) are the best people.
Oh and I found some really cool make-up for the Fire yesterday too. I came across Urban Decay while browsing in Ulta. I was in there innocently enough, looking for a OPI nail color, when the Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Gel caught my eye. B and I had been talking about how fun some dramatic eye make-up would be with the Fire mask.
I really wanted to get the whole look the chick at the counter showed me but just got the eye gel for now. If I get it all I will end up spending more money on make-up (that I will probally only wear one night) than on almost all the fabric for the costume. That is hard to justify! Maybe I've been a Mary Kay consultant for too long - I'm not used to paying retail for quality make-up anymore! :> However MK doesn't carry Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Gels, Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners, 24/7 Eye Pencils and heavily pigmented Eye Colors. Moo.
