Well, I've met about 2/3 of my cast for Traviata... *gulp*

Roughly 10 principals (at least 7 of which need 2-4 costumes each) and a 47 member chorus! *GULP* Did I mention it goes up August 4th? *faint*

Well, I did just hear back from an old colleague that has ~20 ballgowns built for a Die Fledermaus from about 14 years ago... She'll loan them to me for a small donation to her program. That helps tremendously. Now if only more of these "pro" singers owned their own tail coats...

Honestly, how are you gonna try and be a pro singer around town and not own your own tail coat or performance ballgown? Am I old-fashioned? Bah!

In other news, my folks came for a visit today and I got to work on my doll project with my mother near by to give me advice and unending patience. She also has these really cool tools for turning little fingers... So, I now have hands and a head I can live with, YEAH! I ended up laughing with her about the clay heads and went to work on the original fabric one again. I stripped it down to the base layer and built up the features from scratch, put a new "skin" on it and re-sculpted it. This is where mama's advice is invaluable since this is what her specialty is. She brought a sample head with her (that started life looking like a potato) and sat next to me showing how to sculpt certain areas just to get them to stand out a little better. It's basic stuff but I didn't want it to be too involved, just serviceable. So, I'll try and get the features painted on tonight before bed and take pics tomorrow.
