I’m Baaack!

I’m sorry I disappeared!  I was going thru a rather emotional time, and I felt it best to take a break.  And what do ya know…I end up taking the opposite of a break!  LOL

A dear friend of mine threatened that if I didn’t help her make costumes and props at the theater…  Oh who am I kidding!  LOL  All she had to do was ask!

He was keeping an eye out for the first person to walk thru the theater door!  I wonder who that was.....

The baby pictured was the first one.  The straw coming out the eye was supposed to enable the actress to drink “blood” from the bottle stashed inside the webbed baby body.  In the end, I think they decided to forfeit that idea. Sad smile

I didn’t photograph everything. (I know, shame on me…)  There were multiple versions of the goggles.  Most of them looked fabulous, but were not light enough for stage activity.  I’ll do better next time.

Most of it was winging it, and creating the patterns as I went along.  The darker brown jacket had to be made twice!  Ugh!  But didn’t they turn out fabulous?


The play was a Steampunk version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.  Both jackets are the same pattern except the sleeves.


So there’s some of what I’ve been up to.  The rest will be gradually updated soon. Smile

Well there you are! I was about to form a search party. So how did you get in my house and steal our zombie baby water bottle?

LOL I know I should've said something. I was just in a state of "crawl under a rock and die!" :(

Steampunk Shakespeare? I'm in! Glad you are okay, when is that play going to come to Leeds, West Yorkshire?

Thanks! :)

I wish I could answer that for you.

Like what you see? Let us know! :)
