    I know we've discussed re-instating our old costume sweatshop nights, or doing some sort of weekly thing again. With my summer projects coming to a halt within the next few weeks, and having a garage to work in again...

    Is there any interest in getting this going again?

    I was interested three months ago, and I am even more so interested now. I have some time off from school rapidly approaching and it would be nice to do something active other than just chasing a toddler and watching cnn all day.

    I dont have any costumes in mind, persay...maybe we could start working on wee rancor again. :cool:

    IF I can get into the right shape, I think the sorceress from Tin Man has an awesome costume, all shiney and golden and corset-y.

    I was looking at a picture of me in my catsuit for the Huntress costume today...man was i skinny! I dont think I want to be that thin again, but I sure would like to drop a few pounds. Maybe we could have exercise nights and then once we loose some weight reward ourselves with creating sexy costumes for our new bodies. :D

    now that the toe isn't causing as much pain, I can start working out again. After I finish making all the cookies. That's a whole different kind of work out. My arm was sore last night, and it's from my cookie scoop. It's the kind you squeeze it together and it scoops out the dough, and after that many cookies, it HURT. :eek:

    You should be over on Saturday, but that won't be good costuming time...either one night next week or next weekend are the few options open to us

    next weekend is my grandads birthday bash/family reunion. Next week might be a possibility. Let me see if I survive the weekend first.

    Red shirt fabric has been washed and re-rolled onto the bolt. I couldn't figure out how to fold that much fabric. :D

    Can we get a list of sizes needed for 'real' red shirts? We have a pattern right now that goes up to men's large, but with our Seamstress of DOOM, aka "JGoC" we should be able to make larger.

    right now I am making one in Medium for myself, and one in either Medium or small for the mistress...

    We didn't modify that one pattern... did that still need to be done?

    I hope to reclaim my social life this summer, so I am available for this. I know we still have almost a year to work on our Joe costumes, but maybe we could resurrect one of our other projects as well. [face_devil]


    Also, I signed up to use the fitness center on campus this summer to get in better shape and quit smoking (AGAIN.) so maybe costuming night could involve fitness training as well. *shrug*
