1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / And So Summerstock begins: My Fair Lady at Weathervane Playhouse (pic obese) on: June 08, 2010 01:54:43 PM
This is my first year doing Summerstock, and I have been appointed the Costume Intern at the Weathervane Playhouse in Newark, Ohio. Along with the costume designer, assistant costume designer, and costume apprentice, we were able to put together all of My Fair Lady in 9 days. Mostly, I'm super proud of how the Ascot scene in Act I turned out. If you've ever seen the movie or the play, it's the scene where everyone is at the horse race and is dressed in nothing but black and white. Doing this in 9 days with practically no budget and very few resources available proved to be a daunting task, but we pulled it off miraculously.

Pics are a little dark, but you'll get the idea.


Summerstock continues with Miracle Worker next week! Stay tuned for more pics!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I am Molly Ringwald on: November 06, 2008 05:27:05 PM
I am a petite redhead with short hair. I was born in 1988, but my favorite movies involve the Brat Pack. I look awesome in pink. Who else am I going to be for Halloween other than Molly Ringwald?

I got the patterns for my shirt and skirt off of the 1980's section on www.momspatterns.com. I didn't end up actually making either of the pieces until Halloween night, and finished about 2 hours before the party I was going to started. I got the boots and belt at Goodwill. The most expensive part of the costume was the fabric. I bought it on sale at JoAnn's, but I was trying to get as close to the original costume as possible. It ended up being about $40 in total. All in all, the whole costume cost me about $50, which isn't bad if you compare whole costumes complete with accessories at places like Party City.


Me. As Molly Ringwald.

My best friend and I at the party. She was the Mexican Daisy Duke.

A screen shot from the movie for comparison.

How did I do?

I either wait for sales at Hancock Fabrics (they have 99 cent pattern sales and 5 for 5 dollar sales all the time) or I go to www.momspatterns.com.

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / I just bought a serger for $30..... Now what? on: October 03, 2008 10:40:38 AM
So my costume shop foreman simply didn't want her old serger anymore. She just sold it to me for $30. It works. I just need to thread it and get it cleaned/serviced. I am in love with it. I walked out of our theatre building today beaming hugging the machine.

Here's a picture of my new best friend:

Now the question is... How do I thread the thing? I've used a serger countless numbers of times in the shop, so once I get it threaded, I won't have a problem with it. I just don't know how to get it to that point.

Any suggestions? I'm excited to start using it!

10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: easy nondairy baked ravioli! on: September 10, 2008 07:38:31 PM
oooohhhh my gosh!

this is such a good idea!

I'm originally from Missouri and we have baked ravioli in the grocery stores there, but now I live in Atlanta and there is none. I love it so much, and have to stock up when I visit family up in St. Louis. I never thought of making my own! Especially not like this!

I'm going to have to go do this tomorrow.
