Finally, Deme has been completely revamped! (Well, minus a few touch-ups I'd like to give the uni and wig, although I didn't have time to perform them before FC.) I'm mostly happy with this incarnation; I think it very much says "CS as Demeter". But it's the costume I've keep revisiting until the end of time, I think, because she is me and I am her.
The tail and gloves have been requisitioned from v. 1.5, and the warmers and collar have been around since her first incarnation. The unitard and wig are completely new.
Technical Info: Wig: Crepe wool, made by me Unitard: Custom-ordered zentai painted by me with Jacquard textile paint and Dye-Na-Flow Tail: Made by me in the German braided style using a variety of yarns Gloves: Satin opera gloves modified and dip-dyed by me using RIT Warmers: By ~yarndog. Collar: By Lady Jemima (no longer accepting collar commissions) Make-up: Snazaroo, Ben Nye creme for the lips, Ben Nye glitter for the eyes, and some gold Mehron metallic powder for accents
Lo and behold, It's finally done! My Demeter costume I made for the US Troika tour of CATS 2009!
Couldn't have done it without everyone's help and support, thank you, all of you, for making this a great costume and one of the greatest nights of my life.
CATS was amazing live and up close, all of the cast was spectacular and so well put together! All of the choreography was amazing, as always, and the cast did a wonderful job with the show. I loved it! It was funny, too, because all of the people at the show thought I was in the show and wanted pictures and autographs. When I explained to them I wasn't in it, they flipped and wanted more pictures.
