There has been so much going on at the shop - and in real life! We've been spending lots of time building cats for the Aristocats, that just opened last night. It was pretty horrible to work with the fur. We tried to knock out all the fur cutting/sewing but it just lasted for a few days. And it's still all over the place. It's so gross....
Yah, it was super gross. It was up our noses, in our eyelashes, stuck to us everywhere. All over the floor, just everywhere. And I know Kiko didn't like working with the fur because she called in sick on the days we worked with the fur... coincidence? Um, I'm thinking not! :)
Despite all the nasty fur, the show turned out super cute. They were even on TV! Here are some pictures from their promo shots:
And then, some shots from dress rehearsal. Not everyone had makeup on that night, and there were some missing odds and ends, but you get the gist.
And then ARIZONI time. That magical time of year where we dress up and pretend we're famous. Yah, that's the one. :) Well, my friend Aliana wanted to go steampunk, and she brought me some pictures, some gears and a really amazing white corset. And I made her a skirt, embellished the corset, and she was, by far, the best dressed at the ball! In fact, just today I had a customer tell me this was her favorite outfit she saw at the zonis. And she didn't even know I made it! HA! :)
