It's Going to Be One of Those Days

For a start, the person picking up "The Importance of Being Earnest" is coming in the afternoon, instead of in the morning as scheduled. You know what that means, right? All the individuals that were scheduled for this afternoon in order to avoid the pickup are going to arrive right in the middle of it. Unless, of course, they all got mad because we couldn't drop everything and dress them right when they called or came in and have got something elsewhere. At last count, the "picky one," two or three people for an 80s party (ho hum), and an indeterminate number of dance hall girls are planning to descend upon us.

At least "Earnest," unlike "Grease," is a relatively small show. Even with two casts.

I finished the nightgown for "The Fall of the House of Usher" last night, so now it's time to start concentrating (after hours) on the costumes for "Fashion." Each character needs only one basic costume, but there are add-ons that will have to be built.

Do you know what a "lady's tarpaulin" is...or was? I didn't either, after abandoning the fancy of a pink boat cover. Turns out it's a hat, but for the purposes of the play, Frank and I decided it's a sort of open caftan. Ours will be made of a taffeta shower curtain with the rings left in.

Tee hee...

So. Off to listen to the songs from the show, and gird my (self) for the day ahead.
