All done!

Hey, Claudia!
All it needs is hooks! ( headband not shown)

See you Wednesday evening, somewhere. Any suggestions? All I can think of is Cozmos for bathroom size.
parasitegirl: (Fuck yeah)
Shout outs should go to Puppy, who gave me a screener of 21 Jump Street Season 3, Box 2...because the end of costumes always means tv seasons on dvd.

I still need to line the cups and make a cute headband or some such extra bling.



It's the tiny details for me


Claudia. I havent emailed back because I'm trying to figure out if it makes more sense to finish this and send it off this weekend and meet up with you if there are any fit-issues or just meet up with you on the 21th as planned. If there isn't a Cozmos event maybe we could meet there because I know the bathroom is large enough for two for try on and hook sewing-on (edited to add: and wild lesbian antics)

Costumes:Damn, the brown costume on ebay has been dropped to 250$, but I still think that poking her until she sends international is a pain in the ass.

Costume in progress, Romanian.

This was before I finished the belt, but the belt is all lined and I'll toss in the hooks when you get it. Tomorrow I work on the bra.

The storm

Am I kidding about the costume storm? No, not one bit. Do I kid about costumes? Well, yeah, I do, but not about those I make.

Let's see what's on the work table!



From bottom to top.

First off, that yellow thing? I gots me a label maker, bitches! I am waaaaay too happy with my new cheap label maker. It wasn't an easy find. Now I just need a few more storage drawers from Muji for my costume workspace.

Gold: The Romanian's belt is getting some metal rivet action to start with. She's just not the sequin type.

Burgundy: Re-enforcing the cups and doing a little more fringing on one of my first homemade bedlahs. I wore it to the restaurant last
Friday. I swear, there is a love of my homemade bedlah and my Turkish Rom heavy music there that makes me think the owner is stuck a bit in the past and that that's the right place for an owner hiring me to be.

Cowrie: Eshe's long-awaited costume. I'm starting with the few little baggies she gave me at her last performance before moving to Korea and Mekyria's sending more! There's a lovely bit of white coral from my trip to Okinawa that will go between the cups.

Champagne and Coins: At her last performance before moving Eshe thrust a big-ass bag at me and said something about cowries. The thing weighed a TON. It was only when I got home that I realized I was lugging around another coin-cover set. Eshe bought it used before moving and shipping/storage/moving just didn't work out for her. It's going to stay in the Afet Collective family. I'm charging Henna for my supplies and labor to make the base belt and bra and attach everything. When I am done we'll have no reason not to get off our asses and do a duet because we'll have matching-enough costumes now. Above those coins are my coins. Henna and I are roughly the same size so I'm using what I've already done to figure out the base pattern.

Not shown are two stripped-down bras, one for Henna's base and one for my gold bra.

I have some more tribal accent items coming. When they are here I'll shoot photos with and without and see which one Claudia wants...because this may be finished now...it's simple, but elegant. Now, I wait and think ( and sew on the side straps, it'll be that two ribbon style she liked on mine.

Posted because I know progress makes Claudia all giddy...but after this she's going to have to wait until I do some more fabric shopping and get a few things I ordered.
Bedlah without torso. )

Started costumes! No classes for two weeks!

Henna, I can start the base for your coin-workhorse. Email me with specifics for what fabric you want.
