One show down-
"Leaving Iowa" is officially over; except for the laundering and storage, and "Into the Wodds" is in full production mode. Actually, we'll be taking some publicity photos tomorrow so I have had to get selected characters done up quickly. I thought I was in very good shape since I had done the show and was planning on re-using a lot of my stock but, of course, I'm going to be remaking quite a bit. Cinderella, Jack, Jack's mother, two princes, Cinderella's father, the mysterious man--- all new. Everyone else has either new pieces or a refurbishment. I have to go hunting some shoes today for the Baker, Jack and Little Red but I found a cool skirt and blouse for Jack's mom at a thrift yesterday---score! Saves me some sewing time! I'm having a ball but I made the mistake of buying two new quilting magazines to read while waiting in the dressing room of 'Iowa' (I had lots of time between being needed for costume changes and I can only watch the show so many times!). I found at least two new projects I want to get into and my beloved Bottled Rainbows are still calling to me--there's just not enough time in the day! ITW's amazing director pulled in some help for me for wigs and make up; I feel very blessed to have extra hands for this!
