work in progress

In my excitement about making a fantastic Theda Bara costume for Halloween, I seem to have overlooked a few key facts.

1) I can't really sew.
2) Especially when I have no pattern.
3) Stubbornness cannot, in fact, conquer all.

This is what the costume looks like, to date. It is not pleasant.

Yeah, that face sums up exactly how I feel.

But! I do have a can of gold spray paint, and fifty-eight peacock feathers (much to the delight of my cat), and three plastic snakes. Should this, realistically, give me any hope at all? No, but I am ignoring the futility of the endeavor and counting on hot glue to save the day.

Oh god, this is going to end badly, isn't it?

if the snakes and the feathers are spectacular enough, it will blind people to any sub-par sewing abilities or slap-dashery.
this has been the case with any garment i have ever made, for halloween, theatre, or life.
