Yesterday I boasted that I could finish this costume in less than 25 hours. Dumbass. I spent six hours on it today and didn't even get started on the pants. GROAN.
The pasties and assels are done except for dropping on the tassels. I rhinestoned the underbra and panties. The monokini still needs the ass pads installed to hide the assels. It also needs a closure and some snaps to tidy up the line with the underbra. I had hoped to cut and stitch my gauntlets and cut the pants tonight, but I ran out of time.
I reach a point with every costume where I ask, "What was I thinking?" That happened today. I'm working with spandex that isn't very stretchy because of the foil print. I'm making a monokini that requires bust supports because I don't have the chest for your average monokini. I was losing my mind less than an hour ago.
Tomorrow is a new day. I'm cutting those pants and gauntlets before my first cup of coffee.
Total spent so far: 15:45 and $243.80.
