 Happy ever after!. Three wedding!


 Last but not least, those dresses I made. Choir on the right.....

 and on the left.

 Here's a lovely shot of all the fairy dancers.

Man, that was a ton of work. But was a major success! Yeah, us!

Now the fun begins again. Tomorrow, The Boss and I are spend most of the day at the Hot Mess Warehouse, going to try and get it all tidy. Wish us luck!

  2. Everyone seems to be enjoying their participation in this production, Thorne! The costumes are indeed a visual treat, exactly what's required to transport an audience into the other-world of Shakespeare and Mendelssohn. Could we get a closer view of the sleeves on the choir's dresses? Is that a very appropriate leafy lace?

  3. Wow! It's a bit overwhelming to think of all the work that goes into a production like that! And look at the dresses you did! Great job!
