  1. Thanks Kim!!!! I did great! (I surprised even myself!!!) re: strength- it’s been a long work in progress, but I can finally admit that I kinda am 🤣🤣 I’ll post some photos in a bit!
  2. Thank you @Sandi Wiseheart! It was good practice too - I got a little stuck in the standing pose, and it was good practice on getting out while people are watching. tonight is the night! I’ll post some video & photos tomorrow!
  3. Hey gang! So we had dress rehearsal today and I got NO photos of my own performance. However, I did get a selfie with one of my best buds, and I thought I'd share to show the full effect. Also, I was invited to perform last night at a choreographers showcase. I did a "duet" with the studio owner - she and I handed off our choreography, and then after each dance (they did three - me, one other duet and a solo). I forgot that I liked TALKING about dance, and it was like a revelation to me to see that dance-dancers thought what we did was cool, and worth talking about (and uh, that I LIKE talking about it). Anyway, there is a link to that performance, and I'm gonna share it here (I'm the one in the blue hammock) and here is the photo of my finished makeup! I'll try to have a full photo of my costume next week (for the record again, I'm the one with the dark hair. :))
  4. So wondering if this really fits as "sewing" anymore because I'm only going to be "sewing" one thing. 😉 However, thought I'd share my full hair/makeup test. Will do a few more before the show because false eyelashes are HARD:
  5. A bumpit (mine are homemade) are basically like donut shaped net things you put in your hair to give it volume! I need three to build the height! but those gray streaks are actually mine 🤣🤣🤣! I do you think I need to get some white hairspray anyway so that it shows up in the actual show because I’m pretty high up there!
  6. Ok, my first hair run. I had no Bobby pins, and my hair was slightly damp. So next run will be fully dry, slightly dirty hair, with Bobby pins and I think ONE more bump-it (I’m wearing two stacked on top of the other). I wish I’d take one mid-put up, because it was very Amy Winehouse cool, and I kinda want to just wear it like this all the time. Also don’t know why it’s turned on it’s side but 🤷🏻‍♀️
  7. Ok, so I figured out the hair technique I"m going to use, and drafted a fellow dancer who is also a face painter to help with the makeup. Depending on whether or not we have a friend come over this afternoon I *MAY* do a hair test tonight for fun. So now I need to buy a nude leotard and nude tights (I was going to go with a unitard, but after looking at myself inverting, I'd prefer that its not a wide swath of nude fabric 🤣🤣). I've got a white pillow case that I'm going to craft into the "dress" (attaching it to the shoulders of the leotard, like @Sandi Wiseheart recommended). My goal is to have the costume done by Oct 1. The routine is coming along *OK* - I have the full sequence done, and the first time through to music, in front of a group, it went OK (evidently, I'm one of the first to have the whole thing choreographed). I have a few transitions I need to clean up, and then one move I need to either nail in the next 23 days, or find something else (the something else is also cool looking, but a bit easier).
  8. Nope! I would sort mine....if I didn't lose them so frequently!
  9. So very cool, Kim! (Also, love your overalls. :))
  10. Ooooh, this is a good one. I've never thought about it (I opt out of getting the new case at my optometrist - though they try, and have found that store-brand lens solution doesn't come with extras). However, a search shows that 1800 contacts has some ideas: https://www.1800contacts.com/connect/articles/24-reuses-contact-lens-cases
  11. Hahahah. @Sandi Wiseheart The big challenge for me is to not yell “I’m changing everything!” At the last minute!
  12. So I recently joined an aerial performance troupe, and our first show is a Halloween Themed show in October. My piece is going to be in a hammock (I shared some examples in this post). I thought it would be fun to do a thread about my costume - mostly because it has to be a surprise, so I can't post on Instagram, and I need a way to keep myself accountable. I'm going to go with the old-school Bride of Frankenstein: And while my costume has to be way shorter than that (think butt-length), I plan on keeping true to the form (minus some glitter on the costume, because performances demand glitter). I've already found the hair tutorial, which I will be trying in the next week or so. I'l share how that goes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE9naY2aLLk Next up (uh, besides actually working on the routine) is for me to sketch out my costume idea and draft out my supply list! I've got a little less than 2 months to get this done and between the hair, the costume and the actual routine, it's a lot, but I know I can do it!
  13. until

    I’m so sorry! Yesterday was our first day back from vacation and everything was chaos. 😕
  14. Oooooh, a manifesto! I wrote so many of those in my Riot Grrrl/Zine days!!!! I may have to jump on that train! and @Sandi Wiseheart, OF COURSE OF COURSE of course I’ll be your idea-helper!!!!
  15. I actually finally used fusible tape for those overalls! Looked great on first wear, but will see if I need to sew down after a washing!!!!!
