It's more like show 3 weeks. I had Tom Thumb last week and this week and then Spring Sing next week its a crazy time over here! Between being at shows and rehearsals at night, working at the costume shop during the day, and dreaming about it at night, I haven't gotten much sleep lately, but it's ok because this is what I LOVE to do!

Last weeks and This week show was The Life and Death of Tom Thumb the Great and it was my first production working in the costume shop. When my coworker and I were first told about it we thought "good, we won't have to make anything and this will be a breeze" boy, were we wrong!!

Let me introduce you to my baby...

The dress not the person even though I love her too! I worked for weeks and weeks on this dress. I took it apart and put it back together so many times i can't even count the number. I hand washed every piece over and over. I always put my heart and soul into every project I work on, but this was more than that. sadly I think I have unhealthy attachment to this dress, but it is the first thing i have truly worked on while working at the costume shop.

Here a quick backstage picture.

I have never done hair or makeup, but I some how got to do it this show! Luckily we have a WONDERFUL Makeup artist who can tell me how to do it and if its wrong!

Also, Spring Sing costumes are DONE!!! Well i have 2 more to work on, but 70 done out of 72!!! I'm so happy!!!! Now I'm ready for the show to be over because I'm afraid of something going horribly wrong with them! Seriously I have nightmares!

That's all for now! I'll put spring sing pictures up soon!!

Oh and 18 days!!!
