My buddy Lys recently posted a sketch comic of her day; hour-by-hour. I thought some people here would appreciate that sort of glimpse into my main workplace and what comes out of the costume shop. This was a costume made for a student my sister teaches in a nearby studio, to the theme form "Paquita". I also dyed her toe shoes to match. It is a $210 costume.

Thank you! It did end well, but we had so many fitting mishaps on the way that we were lucky it turned out :)

i love the sleeves, and i found the tip about E6000 and cancer to be a good to know fact
TheMightyPegasus's avatar
Thank you! Yes, E6000 is dangerous, but used correctly it shouldn't really give you any serious problems. I mean, I've been using it for years, and I...hackhack....and I'm just...cough...just fine.

This looks super awesome.

The tutu is nice too.
No srsly the red BG is classy. And the series of pictures is nice. If you had the chance, I'd say do a series of these kinds of pieces.

If I can. It's kind of a hostile environment for photos, as photo-taking is misconstrued as wasting time!

Wow, that is so awesome. I love the design you did. Great color scheme and details. Your editing, fixing and alterning commentary was encouraging. I'm trying to make a coat pattern from scratch so it's nice to know that even someone as skilled as you has to do alternations every so often.

That's why I put it up, to show how often mistakes are made and how (even if you think it fits!) fittings are so important.

I hope you have a base jacket pattern to draft from :)

...nope. :liquisoft: Yeah, I'll have to weaken and get one, but first I must be stubborn and fight myself.

We keep things around that make us laugh. Otherwise, I think we would go crazy :)

I don't know how practical this was on any sort of teaching level, lol. More than anything it was an excuse to complain!
