Those of you who have seen Miss Gingers banana know that's she's accomplished at the art of papier mache.
Today, she FINALLY got started on this year's Mardi Gras costume, and she decided to start with the papier mache.
Miss Ginger LOVES papier mache! It's kind of odd that such a messy craft is one of her favorites, but she realized today she loves it because it's a chance for all of her OCD and anal retentive tendecies to exercize their right to flourish! She spent the afternoon in the garage, starting with the big strips, criss crossing them, and the moving to ever and ever smaller pieces as she smooths the surface with her hands. She can't tell you what she's making- you can't see that until after the ball- but she is glad to finally have begun! Now that's she's taken the plunge, she should be able to keep moving on it and be finished in plenty of time. The papier mache will form the headpiece, and there's probably another day's work on that. She's going to order fabric tonight to create the actual garment, and the huge backpiece will be the last piece to be created, due to storage implications. You'll never guess what she's going to be, so don't even try!
And to continue her "Drag Queen Martha Stewart" day, she'g going to attempt grilling lobster tails tonight for dinner. That will be a new adventure- I'll let you know how it goes!
Hope everyone has a great week! Love to all! ....G
