I haven't finished with summer yet, and it still perfectly good camping weather, but already the plans for autumn are rolling in. Life drawing classes, Samhuinn, prints for the xmas/yule markets, and now the need for costume. Torture Garden is returning to central Scotland! I am as always torn between just going naked painted in stripes (much like last time really) or creating an armour of layers in rubber and metal (like the steampunk (18th corset). Hmm, decisions. The dressmaker's dummy is draped in some pretty strange fabrics, the bathroom cabinet is full of body paint, and I have a staple gun to hand. Which will win..?
Watch this space. If all else fails I'll have bondage bunnies to sketch, and I'll give costume designs to those in need of a ballgown.
