One Month to Go!

I know, I know, I missed my usual Sunday post but I decided to wait for today since one month from today, I will be getting on a plane to come home. Now, this comes with stress out factors such as not having a place to live yet, but never the less I'm still very excited that the end of the summer is getting closer. I have had a mostly unexciting week mostly work, however, Chicago opened this week and I went to the show opening night and then to the party afterward. I did take a few pictures but the light was just dim enough that the photos didn't really turn out that well. At work I pulled a package for West Side Story in one day. That sounds pretty impressive, designing an entire show in one day, but it's not as difficult when if just pulling options for the show and there are no actors that have to be fit. If your interested in seeing what I did you can go to the MSMT costumes website and look up West Side Story. Well I guess that all my news for this week. One Month to Go! Yea!

My Fair Lady

Well it's been another busy week in Maine for me. This was the last week of My Fair Lady which has been keeping me very busy. Also this last week marks the half way point in my time here in Maine which is exciting but I'm also very anxious to get home I just want to get rolling on all of the projects I have coming up, not to mention I miss everyone at home. Also I'm pretty sure that most of my readers belong to my family but just in case you aren't, I'm excited to say that my nephew was born yesterday! I'm very excited to meet him, however, I have to wait until Labor day to do so. I'd just like to say Welcome to the family little one!

These are some houses that are on Park Row by the mall I think they are absolutely gorgeous. They are all businesses now, one is a Museum,one is an Inn, and one is an antique store. Aren't they lovely old buildings?

The other evening I went to dinner with some friends from the show at The Great Impasta which is a fantastic Italian restaurant.

Apparently it's a tradition with the wardrobe crew to have "Wardrobe Wiggie Night" where we all try on wigs from the show. Is is just me or do I look like the lady from Pete's Dragon in the cockney wig?

These are some of the lovely people that I got to dress in My Fair Lady. I thought my mom would particularly appreciate the costumes.

This Bree she one of the ladies I dressed, She's a fantastic dancer and a lovely person I really enjoyed being her dresser.

This is Jean she is a local woman who was in the show she was just such a sweet lady and very classy, she was also alot of fun to dress. I didn't get pictures of the other people I dressed but they were all so good to work with.

Well I guess that just about sums up my week I get a couple of days off and then it's back to work at the Fort for me. Have a wonderful week!

Busy Week...Boring Blog

I've had a very busy week this week I've been dressing My Fair Lady and it is a big show with allot of changes and I've been getting a real work out running up and down stairs to keep up with my costume track. Running the show is fun and exhausting but it means I haven't been out getting pictures of things or have any fun stories to share and you may have noticed that I'm a big cheater and I posted last weeks post today. Well I don't have much more to report I did have a cold this week but I think running the show in 90 degree heat with lots of humidity actually acted like a sauna and sweated it out of me. But I'm happy and tired and I get a day off tomorrow so life is good. I love you all and I hope I can have a more exciting post for you next week.
