Costuming job rocks

I have officially had my first really fun assignment for my costuming job. I got to trick out two costume top hats for service as pieces for steampunk doctors. Well, not exactly steampunk, more post-apocalyptic-meets-traditional-Caucasian, but borrowing from the concept of thematically appropriate embellishment from the steampunk aesthetic. I bought some tiny glass potion vials to evoke medicine, and got to break a pair of spectacles apart withe a pair of pliers for component parts. ANY project that lets me break out the pilers is a win in my book, and it allowed me to put one lens on to evoke a monocle or a lens a doctor might use in examination, and my repurposing of the ear pieces suggests a needle. Add a little hot glue, and presto!

And I did this for my JOB. That I'm getting PAID FOR. HELLS YEAH.

Wow. -So- cool that you get paid to do that stuff. Making props and costumes and sets can be either really boring or really fun, depending on the creativity allowed and the crew involved. Nice to see you are getting the awesome end of the spectrum.

And I hope the actors and the audience show their gratitude, dagnabit!
