Sassy Song Bird

Over the last couple of months I’ve be leisurely pottering away on a costume for a wonderful new friend of mine Miss Sassy Catch. She’s an amazing singer down here in Perth.

She wanted a costume with a bit of a Gibson girl feel basted on a dress Immodesty Blaize wore in a photo shoot recently. I drew up a design got the okay by Sass and started work. Two months later (I’ve been taking it slow :P) here’s where I’m up to. I’m almost done got a couple of things to fix and finish after our last fitting but not a great deal.

The under structure with all the boning and support.

With the gingham top layer.

It's cute little bolero.

And the Sass herself in it for a fitting with removable skirt extension.

And a little garter to top it all off.

Keep your peeper pealed for photos of it’s debut!

Mod vs Rocker

Last week end a good friend of mine’s club had a ‘Mods Vs Rockers’ night. I didn’t really have anything in theme so I winged it in one of my favourite dresses and a black wig that I’ve taken quite a shine too. I also wore a hat pin for the first time! I will never wear another hat without one. It kept my hat in place all night!

It was one of the best nights I’ve had out in a very long time. It was great to use a little of both of the only two dances I know; the twist and a little Charleston (I’m not very good at either). I hope they do another soon!
