I’m NOT Scared (I will Now Hide Under the Blankets WEre the Monsters Can’t See Me)

So really this is just some tech week shots for the show on Tuesday. The school I work for (Delaware County Community College) is putting on GODSPELL. The cast are all students in the acting program, and we have the smallest crew the world has ever seen working on a musical…

A skeleton crew, as it were.

Anyway, enough blah blah blah. Here are some pics I shot between changes with my lil iPod. Sorry for the crap quality.

This is our wonderful goth Ida. You wouldn’t know it but she’s got blonde hair that is longer than Rapunzel’s. no, I didn’t make her cut it. We got a wig.

And the second costume for our goth. I know goths everywhere are eye twitching, since she has become a raver.

Oh! To clarify, I don’t remember the actual character names… But it was decided that the characters should all be stereotypes you find on college campuses!

Full make up and final costumes on Wednesday!!!

Of Ancient Egyptians and Bias Tape

First, let me introduce you to Hatshepsut!!

She is my brand new industrial sewi g machine that I bought for 50$. No joke.

She needs some living care, like some oil, and a new cord, and maybe a new lamp, since the old one got smashed in the moving process.

But other than that, she runs like a dream!! I can’t wait until I have her back in ship shape, so I can put her to work… And let my moms sewing machine take s vacation. That poor little Viking has really been a trooper for me!

So what I have for you today is a rant about bias tape.

I just spent two days making 5 yards of shantung bias tape from 1/8 of a yard of fabric. “Why?!” You ask.

Because the fabric stores near me only sell decently priced cotton bias tape, and for this new panty design, I needed cherry red shantung bias tape like this.

I’m going to cry blood when I run out of this bias tape!
