Things of doing:
I'm making pretties for The Portland Vampire Ball
for 4 people:
-A black victorian mourning style dress
-A black/white stripe skirt & black polonaise with pink button trim (can you guess who for? hee!)
-A mens waistcoat to match his wife
-A Queen of Tarts, I mean HEARTS dress based on Elizabethan design
Things of did:
I featured some of my clothes from the steampunk inspired line at an Abney Park show in Seattle, which was so so. The event itself was great, but I wasn't focused enough to get psyched or get my models psyched/prepared. I was only capable of dressing people and sitting around. I was pretty displeased with my performance overall. The models did a great job, though, in spite of it all, but I have super professional models, so I'm blessed in that respect.
I still have my day job, even after layoffs in the apparel design/development world at large, which is grand, but leaves me with even less time to work on my own designs, commissions, fashion shows, and photoshoot wardrobing.
I'll post pics as I finish the things of doing!
