Let me preface this by saying that having a mom who sews and crafts is amazing.
Let me also preface this by saying that having a mom who is creative is amazing … and dangerous.
Now, let’s blog!
Every year for a Peripatetic Players show, I like to help make our costumes. In O Best Beloved, I made Elly the Elephant’s Tutu, and in Aesop Amuck! I made the Fox hat and tail. This year, I am undertaking the task to make a costume that reflect not only Juliet, but also a certain space princess. Here are two pieces of art that are inspiring me:
How would Princess Gwen wear a costume that says both of these characters at the same time? Well, this is where Mom comes in!
My mother is a great seamstress and makeup artist, and has a large stock of old costumes, fabrics, and other goodies. I remembered a box of fabric that I had set aside on a visit that I thought would be good for SPPP, and I asked my mom to send it to me. The box was finally delivered yesterday, and lo and behold… a confetti bomb!
She got me, and she got me good. Thanks, Mom!
Next up — picking out all of the confetti and starting to sew!
