I had also forgotten how EVERYTHING is last minute when you're putting on a show. Last week I was having a heart attack. This week I'm still having a heart attack, but I can see everything starting to come together. The sets are arriving, I'm picking up our rentals early next week and I was finally given an advance on costumes so I can pick up the last of my supplies. Yes, things are going to work out just fine.
Still... if anyone ever asks me to costume a cast of 42 in 2 weeks ever again I am running for the hills! It's been a fun challenge, but it's been a big challenge. I can't wait for the publicity shots to come in so I can finally show you all what I've been working on every night for the past two weeks. Show opens for "Family Night" (read: Another Dress Rehearsal) in 1 week!
In other awesometastic news; one of my bridesmaids/favorite people in the universe is visiting from DC this week!! Here she is being her awesome camera woman self in a very mysterious place.
We've been having a great time. I feel a little bad because she's had to share the guest room with about 100 costumes, but she's taking it in strides. This lady has lived 3 months on a boat, traveling the world, filming, photographing, and generally having an awesome life on one suit case. Apparently my guest room is nothing.
We've decided to go to hit up a vintage wedding dress store in Atlanta tonight. So sweet! I'll bring New Old Camera and get some pictures for all of you. Who knows, maybe we'll find something fabulous there.
