The costume is nearly complete. The only things I need to do are sew in the lining on the belt (that'll happen over lunch today) and cut out the circular veil out of the liquid lamé. I put on the shrug/gauntlets with the bra last night and they look fantastic. I'm relieved and pleased. I also tried on the belt with the skirt and pants, and decided I'm not going to make an overskirt after all. The pants are orange, and adding an orange overskirt might lighten up the color balance more than I want. Now comes the hard part: Practicing.

Last night at acupuncture, Kiva did a meridian-balancing thing (it has a name, but I can't recall it). She tests sensitivity to heat in my toes and fingers and then uses points to even out the sensitivity. It's interesting how the same toe on a different foot feels the heat so much sooner (or slower) than the other. Let's just say my left side was way off. She got a lot of that evened out, and a significant portion of my swelling was down by the time I left the office. I went in with my camo shorts biting into my stomach right at my waist, and by the time I left, they were already resting below my belly button. Magic!

Happy Nigel Tufnel Day!

Did you sit there with your finger on post to get THAT moment?

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

I set up an alert on my computer so it'd ding at me when the clock turned over to the right time. =)

It's very exciting! Except I ran out of thread during lunch, so still have half the belt lining to finish sewing in. Of course.

During my 4th Hour class we stopped and counted down until it was 11:11 and 11 seconds. It was fun. Then we went back to work.
