    Costume restoration

    Never mind. Hubby has stated (the obvious) if the paint isn't perfect, I'd rip it all out anyway. So why not just do that first. :rolleyes:

    Costume restoration

    Restoring well used costume. The headband's plastic color coating has worn off; leaving a worn / unprofessional look. Don't have time to rebead it. Alternative is to paint. Does anyone know which paints are stellar for repainting plastic beads with good adhesion and no plastic damage? Where...

    Live music!

    Music? Would love Aziza, Lama Bada, and Tamra Henna. Costumes? Vintage Costless with Madame Abla skirt. An Egyptian gold bedlah absolutely needs to be worn. And a baby blue silk brocade with silver coins. (Need to check for completion and fit.) Special moments? Pondering. First practice...

    Live music!

    Invited to perform with a newly formed middle eastern band (in a couple months). Their music is purely classical; requested my costume and dance reflect that. (Adore vintage style costumes; plenty on hand to choose from.) A few practice sessions between now and then; but I'm excited and...

    Thoroughly enjoyed bike riding by the river for about forty five minutes. Glorious sun, scenic views (ducks, geese, heron, crane), and wind on the face. Then the wind grew stronger and colder. That forty five minutes back wasn't near as fun. 🤪

    How did the bidding turn out? Long day, so I had forgotten about it, and took a nap. Someone else purchased the lot I was bidding on for $72.01. Yay for them. Hope there was some neat goodies in there.

    Costumes for sale....

    Hmmmmm, thank you Zorba. This will be fun. Edited to add- sent an e-mail on shipping prior to bidding, as they prefer to have someone pick it up in person. (Yeahhhhh, no. COVID. Not happening.) Also noted this is not like e-bay, 'When time runs out, it's out.' They're duplicating 'live...

    Current costume fashions

    No worries. Efficient at fitting Egyptian costumes and have dissected / adjusted more Egyptian costumes than I can recall. Enjoy seeing other's work (nicely done or train wrecks that leave me laughing for days). Seen more sewing pins left in bras than is reasonable. (How can they not see...

    Won two vintage style Egyptian bedlahs on Shopgoodwill that look to be in good condition. Are they au current? Nope. Do I care? Nope. Will they fit? No clue. (Goodwill isn't known for posting photos with a measuring tape or even cup size. When questioned, their reply is- 'Don't know'.)...

    COVID-19

    Because there are people like me who don't have sufficient white blood cell count for a vaccine to create immunity (antigenic escape). So I have to be concerned about dying from COVID . There's also viral mutations occurring due to vaccinations not happening quickly enough (plethora of...

    Went for a lovely walk with the dogs this afternoon. (Feral heathens.) Weather was gorgeous! White bark tree limbs against a blue sky. The shade of blue only seen in N.M. and on The Simpsons. Screech owl was roosting in his tree. Bees aren't out yet. Dogs are now upside down on the sofas...

    Due to Texas situation, hubby is researching quiet generators which would maintain water and heat until power was restored. Planning ahead just in case it happened here (in Albuquerque, NM). Better to be prepared and never actually need it.

    I hear their evil Texas governor flew to Cancun during this outage. Is it true? Yet to be determined. N.M. (where I live) received a light dusting. Wild mallards had to stamp down the snow to get to the feed we leave for them.
