My Fishing Opener Courtesan costume. In this picture, it's about halfway finished - since then I've lengthened the bloomers, hemmed the dress, did a bunch of handstiching, added clasps in the front, grommeted the inside and put in the sleeves (actually, my bestie, Laura, put in the sleeves. I hate doing that.). I also decorated my hat and shoes and made straps to afix a Billy the Big Mouth Bass to my back.
Go big or go home. It's not just my motto, it's a way of life.
On Sunday, I'll be cooling off in my belly-dancing gear:
I made that jingle bra out of 6 yards of trim. Hand-stitched. SIX FREAKING YARDS OF IT. But look, it's so shiny! The collared vest worn over it prevents me from feeling too naked. Plus, it's made of my all-time favorite fabric:
Bad-ass chasuble fabric! Like the Pope wears!
Please excuse the straps hanging down in the back. I fixed them so they fit correctly, with no dangly bits.
So. What are YOU wearing this weekend?
