Hehehehe...I'm a poet!
Firstly....PR last night was awesome. Christopher was once again brilliant. I want that dress!
For those of you who didn't catch it the challenge was to create a costume for a character they made up in a film genre they got to draw cards for. Christopher chose "Period" and created a fabulous Victorian-inspired dress complete with bustle. It was the top that was sensational. He did a halter (not Victorian) that had a jabot in the back. He was squeezed out of first place by Nicholas who created a Sci-Fi ice queen, which was good but personally I think the L'Oreal hair and make-up crew won it for him with a sensational design. They had sugar syrup running down the model's hair and it looked just like icicles.
Play with Clay
This morning the blogs seem full of polymer clay beads and it's making me want to make them again.

Yes, I actually did get some beading done last night...not finished but progress was made. The new design I'm working on, which I have given the working title of "Urchin Wings" is coming together. The piece has now got both it's wings and two strands of the band (I think there will be eight in the end). These strands resemble vertebrae and I'm calling them spines.
It's Gothic looking but elegant...definitely 'Gothic Grown-Up' and I'm seeing so many variations of it. I have already designed a finger armor piece to match it. I think I'll be playing with this design for quite a while.
I wish there were more hours in the day so I could do everything I want to.
