Hand is cold and cramped up. But the back of the dress (and the bigger side) is pretty much done. I may do some very fine touchups, but not until all the main work is done. Tomorrow is the front of the dress and the front of the overshirt.  And then…FINALLY, I can assemble this bad girl. 

Hand is cold and cramped up. But the back of the dress (and the bigger side) is pretty much done. I may do some very fine touchups, but not until all the main work is done. 

Tomorrow is the front of the dress and the front of the overshirt.  And then…FINALLY, I can assemble this bad girl. 

Stenciling started. The space at the bottom is intended, as the design is set up to work with hemming in the front when I get to the final assembly phase, The front hem will more or less dictate how the rest of the dress is hemmed, since the back is trained.
The paint is two layers. The first is a custom-mixed blue-white matte, the second is a opalescent white. The opalescent by itself does not color well and therefore doesn’t stand out against the purple, so it needed that layer to bring it forward.Once the main stencils are down, I’ll start the detailing phase. Most of that consists of uniting all of the segmented parts (flower stems, etc) and blending them in accordingly, then trimming with blue paint. All goes well, the final assembly will start Wednesday, and will be done by the weekend, leaving only minor details on the menu.I have to cut the stencil on the shirt but I’m giving my index finger some time off. Cutting the stencils for the skirt caused it to temporarily go numb at the tip. The feeling IS coming back, but gradually. I have to let things fix up because it will be integral to being able to do my handfinishings.

Party Hard

With this, I go to bed now.

(and for the spiderphobic, I hope the fact that he is playing bongos makes him a bit more cute.
