Printed off the patterns and supply lists at work today. Mimi's data disk also has screen shot storyboards, which can also be printed off as well as viewed, but I think I'll wait to see which ones I might really need in hard copy before printing off lots more pages. (It's nice to have good printers and staff perks at work.)
I also got a good bit of my masquerade crafting done last night, gluing on lots of tiny rhinestones. They are just acrylic craft rhinestones, but they do have a nice enough sparkle to them. I added the paint and rhinestones to the mask, and onto the tails of the tulle bow. On the headband, I ran a line of larger rhinestones down the center and attached the tulle bow to one side. Then I affixed a brooch to the center of the bow. I had one that that worked well as to colors and style for this masq project but was damaged. The pin clasp broke and so I couldn't really wear it as a brooch anymore, but was able to use it here by gluing it to the bow with E6000 adhesive. I like how these additions look and think it will reallly help to pull the entire outfit's look together (as my black skirt is really sparkly).
I love that skirt. I picked it up years ago at a vintage store in Nashville. It has a black sequined v-shaped yoke, with pleated black satin flowing and belling from there out over the hips. The satin is embellished with scattered rhinestones. they really catch the light and dazzle! There is a ruffled layer of good quality crinoline underneath. The skirt fits well and feels glamourous. Wish I had a top that really set it off, but the gold sweater I have at least works okay.
Reminder note to self: find gold shoe clips in jewelery bowl, add an accent to my shoes.
I located the black artificial fingernails (they were in my bag of Halloween makeup and stuffs), but still need to add the rhinestones to them; considering first dipping the tips into gold polish or paint. So, craftwise, I have to do the nails, and still have to gather the black lace to the mask's edge. Hoping I can get that done tonight/tomorrow morning. Will also decide which brooches I want to show off on the fur collar. Going to use my topaz and clear stone chatelaine brooch for sure, holding the sides of the collar together. Also still need to condition the wig, and will go out and look for gold lipstick (damn, I could have ordered some if I'd decided earlier that I was actually going to do on NYE.)
Got some tips from a couple of the Dolls on where to find gold lipstick, now if Sepehora (over at Bridge Street, or the brand is also available at JC Penny) just has it in stock. Or another option is a makeup hack, using eyeshadow over lip balm as lipstick; I know i can find gold eyeshadow.
