so last night, my friend gayle was asking me if i was ever going to post on my blog again, which asking me if i'm ever going to do a thing is a sure fire way to guarantee i will either do it immediately and go completely overboard, or i will never, ever do it again so long as i live. because i love gayle, i have chosen to post immediately, or as immediately as i could which is right now.
so, for the "immediately" part: gayle actually gave me some content--thank you, gayle--which amounts to the few pictures the photographer shot of "the magic flute". honestly, the costumes and the whole opera looked way better than these pictures show--i'm not positive about this, but i'm willing to start the rumor that the photographer was blinded by the astonishing beauty of the costumes and was not able to properly operate his equipment because of that.
the overture, a hill at woodstock:
papageno, in hand-made mocassins, hand-painted jeans, hand-painted and fringed vest, and sadly-distressed, once-gorgeous paisley shirt:
the three ladies, modeled on the supremes, in the most hateful fabric ever invented, liquid sequins:
queen of the night, in airbrushed and handpainted dress inspired by the show poster:
so again, here i am trying to figure out how i'm going to get good pictures of the good costumes and just not even showing you the bad pictures of the bad costumes. but now that i've posted, i feel refreshed. thanx, gayle.
now, for the "overboard" part, i'm going to try to post every day between now and christmas. yeah, i know, but i'm feeling ambitious. besides, by her own admission my dear friend gayle is stalking me on my blog. :) and i really do have some nice projects to share with you, and of course a few tacky ones, too.
