My Final Reveal: Smurfing Snaps
Who has baby blue nail polish? Me! I can't really wear it without turning my nails a hideous yellow, but I keep it in my closet just in case. I believe it was Penny Starr, Jr. who told me to use fingernail polish to paint snaps so they'd be camoflaged on the costume. I smurfed (painted) my snaps, then I smurfed (sewed) them onto the yoke. Smurfed my way through my costume tasks for the evening. Maybe tomorrow I'll trace my balls-tripping design onto some skirt panels.
