Behold, the bearded lady!
Last night was the Halloween Event at the Cicada. It was a lot of fun. We got there early and just hung out for a spell. I attended with my friend Niki, she went as a witch.
I spent an hour prior putting on my beard. It was a HUGE success.
People loved it! I was so surprised. People told me it took real balls to wear a costume like that. Woah, not so fast.
Let's just keep it beard only :)
It was fun to do, and now I think I have a much greater respect for men and beards. Although mine was glued on, they are itch and hair goes everywhere and its crazy. But it was fun.
I thought I have better pictures but people all over the place were taking photographs and Im sure you can find them on the Facebook if you search Cicada Halloween 2010.
The dress turned out great, although I do need to get some better foundation garment for it. I changed the sleeves with the pleats over the shoulder. I fixed the hem, and it was great walking through that club with a lovely diva like gown. I also closed the zipper to the back and put one in on the side because it was just too difficult to get into by myself.
The turquoise velvet was another story. I went to the fabric district here in LA looking in about 6 different stores for a velvet like the one I had. I couldn't find one that pleased me. I'd come across some in a larger fabric store, but they wanted $36 a yard for it! WHATEVER!! Silk velvet, maybe, perhaps, but for polly crap, no way. The velvet I had had a cotton pile (I believe) and was so soft and breathable, so I just bit the bullet and took apart the shawl I had at home. I liked it with a stiffer canvas and was able to squeeze out the bow and belt for it.
It turned out really well and I can wear it with other dresses.
So Id' say all my hard work paid off. It was a fun event with an obscenely long conga line. The after party was pretty tame, but I grabbed some more pictures of the penthouse as the club will loose the lease on the place (Its being restored and used for weddings and such).
But everything was opened up this time. It was great wondering around and looking at everything.
Now that my fun and busy weekend is over, it s back to reality. I've got some more projects lined up, so I won't disappoint.
