Costume recap

Over the past few months that I have been MIA, we have had a ton of time playing around with costumes. I thought I would bring you up to speed.

We have had favorite book character dress up day at school. . . .(pictured below was Riley's favorite from Monster High...Draculaura-- a close up on the face so you can see her fangs and they lasted all day even after having lunch.)

The Chinese Lion Dance during the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade

Little Willy Wonka for her vocal recital and first vocal competition (she took first place)...this was the best photo of her so you don't get to see the skirt but it is basically gold with the same lace ruffles and trim you see here. Oh but you do miss the spats I made too. Oh well.

My little jazz diva....who was missing her two top, front teeth and loving it!

Hula girl...

Cheetah for The Lion King musical..and by the way it's the same Kryolan makeup I used for Draculaura and this stuff does not budge. You can wear it all day and it stays perfect with or without fixative. When I spray the fixative she gags so I try not to use it. Here in this photo, I had to rush her from Tahitian dance rehearsal to a performance and I dressed her, did the hair and makeup in under 15 minutes.

Check out one of the masks I casted for the musical as well...it's an exact replica of SCAR and it sits on the head just like the ones they use in the Broadway production. Here I was fixing up the mask after the actor did an intial paint job. I thought it needed some livening up. So I spray painted the hair and tried to cover up the gold duct tape he put on right before the show. I made a Simba and Mufasa mask/headpiece as well.

And now you get the various Tahitian dance costumes. Here is her photo from her first competition where she placed third. 

Her second competition...there was a lot of talk about it being fixed by many of the groups. Day 1: eliminations. Day 2: Finals  which was also her birthday.  And by the way, these are fresh leaves and flowers.

A few days later in a group competition piece (my mom's favorite photo):

Picture day at her other dance school:

A production of "South Pacific"

Competition in Tahiti a few days after her birthday...where she took FIRST PLACE... the one in pink.

And this was from the most recent competition from early September....and look I sewed live leaves and flowers. Can barely see the little thing!

Well anyhow, I thought it would be nice for a brief catch up since my mom...she reads this and asks why I haven't posted the costume photos. So there you go, mother! I have some new costumes coming up. Think characters from Phineas and Ferb. I even have a spider dress. Both costumes were constructed from hand sketched patters. Can't wait to show you!

The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint
me as a

lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to learn, but I

really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to
say. All I

hear is a bunch of whining about something that you may fix if you happen

to werent too busy searching for attention.
