I was going to spend today pinning and sewing the venise lace onto the edges of the lace collar/breastplate thing I'm making as part of my Vampire Ball outfit. But first I had to take the old lace off, because the base collar/front had originally been a stretchy lace shirt of mine, and the narrow ruffled lace down the front would add too much bulk, not work with the intended design, and make attaching the resin bobcat skull more difficult than it needed to be.

Guess who kept tearing the damn thing? AAAAAAUUUGH.

But hey! Did you know that you can buy lace collar/dickies on Amazon with Prime shipping? So that arrives Tuesday, which gives me enough time to attach the venise lace and do some beading before next weekend, at which point I'll take the whole thing (and bobcat skull) with me to Thea's, where we will figure out how to attach the skull and add even more sparkly accents. And because Thea is 1) an awesome friend, and 2) Queen of Crafting and DIY, she's already said that if I need to leave the whole thing with her so she can work on it while I'm off at Disneyland, that's no problem.

This means I can spend part of today gathering all the assorted burgundy and black floof I may want to add to this hat. It's a few shades lighter than the dress I'm wearing it with, but pretty close to the skirt; if I add darker burgundy accents to it (more lace, silk roses), along with some black tulle (and maybe black roses, IDK), that will tie the whole thing together.

Yes, these are the sorts of things I do for fun.
