*I did not name this show nor was I consulted in the name of this show. I–it’s just a really not-good name for the show.
But, what do I know.
So, yeah, this is why I haven’t really been around, in case y’all have been wondering why I’ve been AWOL–aside from an epic people hangover from T-Day and the writing.
Did I mention that I now have an official title now? I’m a Senior Contributing Writer.
Tell me that isn’t awesome.
So–I’m in this steampunk show, and I’ve been working on a costume because, sometimes, I just really enjoy making wearable art.
But–hey!–I figured new show, new piece (because that’s just the kind of squid I am).
So, the idea for this is an Order of the Brass Octopus dress uniform for a Lieutenant-Colonel, but this is an Order of the Brass Octopus that’s run by Madame Lefoux and is, not only militaristic, but also highly matriarchal.
Remember, this isn’t remotely done yet.
Can we talk about how much I despise setting grommets and how awful fan-lacing is to do?
And, yet, here I am: grommets and fan-lacing galore. *SIGH*
If you’d like to see the rest of the photos documenting this piece so far, please feel free to take a gander at the set.
I have really horrible concept sketches in there. Might be good for a giggle.
