|Joy: Batman wedding garter|
Yes. That's the Batman symbol because Andrew is Batman in another show, and he's a huge fan of Batman. Why not really personalize the garter? The lace is some leftover vintage lace I was given by a dear friend that I used floral spray paint to color for the trim beneath the ostrich boas on my robe. I bought a roll of 100 yards of aqua ribbon for $8 and have used that for almost everything I've done. The rosette is from an unsuccessful purchase of flowers for snapper finger puppets; the flowers are just too big for the finger puppets. The coral ribbon is from the feather fans I made for Bukowski. I had some elastic in my supply boxes. Once I found the right set of instructions I was able to crank out two in less than an hour.
That's right. Two garters. One is for keeping, and one is for tossing into the audience. I really want the audience to have a great time and to be able to take home memories from this show. I couldn't scrimp on the toss garter.
|Pain: water damage & gluey shoes|
You would think that I would know about the care of dyed shoes. Nope. I wore black pleather shoes to all of the proms I attended. I wore white pleather shoes at the first wedding. I tend to wear leather, pleather, or embellished shoes. This is my first pair of dyed "satin" shoes.
So with a little bit of water I fucked up my shoes. Good thing I bought more rhinestones Saturday so I can hide that shit with sparkle. Since the shoes are "satin," I can use GemTac instead of E6000. I wasn't expecting to have this as a chore, so I'm going to try to make the most of it. My plan is to cover the toes and the heels because that's where the damage is. Fingers crossed it works.
