Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

A few "Aida" costumes~

I have posted before about how busy I am and I never have time to do everything I want to in the sewing room because I never say 'no'.  Well, this fall I learned that it's not going to matter (sometimes) if I do say no. Apparently, I'm not allowed to! So, this year, instead of the usual 'dramady' for the church's Christmas program,  we will present a variety show, which is a lot easier to put together and far less stressful for my co-director and I to pull together. Yikes. Lightboard for  'Ruthless' in September, costuming/production for 'Portrait...' in October, costuming for 'Aida' in November---- Jacie has worked every show with me and we figured out we've had one weekend off since the end of August.
Any way...

I don't normally take pictures during the show runs because:
1. I know someone else always does and they're usually better than any I take and
2. I rarely think to bring a camera.
But I did this weekend and grabbed a few shots backstage of the main characters, except Aida. I'll get her next week. I hope.  But here is Radames:
(Jonathan)
Amneris:

(Genevieve)
One of her MANY costumes!

Mereb and Nehebka:
(A.J.)(Charity)

Zozer:
(Jason)
 
Jacie managed to sneak out front and tried to snap a few non-flash pictures during the show, from the side. Not great, but here's lovely Aida with my sweet Nubians during 'Dance of the Robe':
 


I must get better pictures-- although it's not everything I designed/wanted due to time constraints and quick changes, I am really pleased with this show and want to 'book' this one!
