adventures in costuming
new beginings

It's official so I can finally share the big news I have been DYING to tell you 'all!

The Bad News: I won't be attending Costume College this year after all. So if you know anyone who needs a membership or a gala ticket I'd love to sell them mine! (memberships can be transferred until June 24th)

I'm incredibly bummed out about not seeing my far-flung costuming friends, lounging in Roman dress with you guys and missing the first ever making bobbin-lace class I've seen offered at Costume College (razenfrazen!) but I'm really excited about the reason I can't go...

The Good News: I will be attending The Paul Mitchell School in Woodbridge to become a licensed cosmetologist!

It's something I've thought about doing for YEARS but my fears and doubts always held me back. As I've been doing a lot of deep soul searching over the past few months, I finally found the faith and the courage I needed to follow this path. It's time to stop standing on the sidelines cheering on friends as they take risks and follow their dreams; it's time I followed their example. Things have fallen into place every step along the way so far and I feel an incredible peace and surety that this is what I'm supposed to do.

I start school on June 18th. It's an intense 11 month program, Tuesday-Saturday, so there are lots of costume events this year that I simply won't be able to do and I don't know how many sewing projects I'll have time for. But it's only a year and my new mantra is short term pain for long term gain!

Wheee - have I mentioned I'm SO excited?!!!

Oh, that is cool! I know you'll be fantastic at that! We'll miss you at the costume events you can't come to, but since you'll be even better at Whore Makeup afterward, it'll be worth it! ;)

And seriously cute shoes!

Thanks so much! Yes, I fully expect to be even better with whore make-up when I graduate!

I'm so far behind reading my friends list that I'm just now reading this, but wanted to be sure all the same to add my congrats and wishes for the best of luck with this new adventure! I'm sure you'll be amazing at this, because you always look impeccable! :)

Opps just realized I never replied - it did it in my head that counts right?

Thanks so much! That is so sweet of you to say! I do love this stuff...
