*grumbles and whines*
I didn't fall asleep until sometime after 2:30, then storms rolled through (seemingly) continuously. 6:20 I woke up and that was the end of sleeping.


Bah! Bah, I say!


I need to go accessory shopping today. Need D-rings, O-rings, some chain and maybe some red fabric paint.

Oh, and more buttons.

White gloves?

a little bit of white elastic.

Dragon*Con is not that far away.

I'm so glad that I know you're a costumer because otherwise, I'd be concerned about that list of "supplies".

Ooo, good reminder! Do you have any of the Navy left over? I'd like to use it to trim mijan's costume. Can you mail some to me? I'd need 1/4-1/2 yard.

I'd say white wrist gloves, or elbow-opera in red, if you can get one in satin that matches the collar color. Or get short white and make opera-length arm-warmers with the single finger loop out of the collar fabric. Whatever you get, I suggest you tread at least the right hand. Stuff it with paper or such, put hot glue on the palm and fingers, and 'tack' it with something hard (like a bit of wood) while it's still hot to rough up the surface so you can handle things without them slipping on the satin.

I must've been really tired. I slept through all but the really big booms. Even with that, I still woke up at 6:00, without my alarm, and was rested enough to exercise this morning, so yay.

Actually, I think I got everything in one grand round of Lawrence. I am quite proud of myself.


But I had to 'make do' for the d-rings, and since I now have a lead on THOSE, it looks like I might have to make one more trip. For the costume, that is.
