My Final Reveal: Into the Stretch
I spent part of my morning and part of my afternoon painting, getting through another chunk of the final panel in two and a half hours. I had my little friend, Buster, (Bussy) trying to claw his way up my body while I painted. He missed us greatly while we were out of town. If I could've painted with him on one hip like a toddler, he would've been happy as a clam.
I did a dry run in my costume this evening and made note of some of the little costume things I have to do. I have some finishing touches to put on the bra and gown, magnets and washers for the panels, snapper eyes to replace, and the panty problem remaining.
I know the hand-painted panels have taken hours and hours and hours. If the costume wasn't painted, there would be some other embellishment that would take up that time. I don't even know how many hours I spent painting, rhinestoning and hand beading mega costume.
Total so far: $349.19 and 98:55
