The fabrics are due to arrive tomorrow, and the wife has started to get into the creative mood…
We dashed into the rag market today, and I then went rummaging int my theatrical claptrap boxes upstairs, locating a variety of broken jewellery and baubles left over from my younger daughter’s Tim Burton inspired wedding decor.
Wifey found a fabulous top hat and a BARGAIN piratical gun, and I got various crafty goodies and some lining for my jacket. I had a sleepless night last night, and ended up sprawled on the spare bed at 3am browsing through ‘Corsets & Crinolines’ and various costume books. Yum. I need a tournure, it is vital, I will not live without one. A red one.
I also snaffled some AMAZING tattoo tights, you can just see them in the pic.
Now I’m itching to get cracking on this one, but of course the next few days are rather mad: Leeds on Friday to Saturday, London on Monday, and back to work next Thursday. I’d better move fast eh?
