Up To Some... Monkey Business!!!

Hello Dhaaarlings...

Princess has been flat out phaffing over a pile of pale blue velleure stretch and contrasting grey fur in the process of creating some "monkey business"... 

Here's a Sneak Peak


6 headpieces yet to have their fez hats attached...



And matching pale blue body suits...

I've still to make the bolero jackets and "modesty shorts" that will be worn over the top of the body suit... But that is tomorrows task...

I had a brief meeting with the "head costumier" yesterday.... Who I think was hoping that I would take on some of her work as she is still having "terrible trouble" with her sewing machine... 

Instead I commiserated with her over her mechanical difficulties and let her know that I too had been having problems with a broken over-locking machine that has been out of action for the past week. 

During the conversation I bought her up to speed as to my progress so far and in the same conversation managed to nicely handball some extra work her way! Yes! I know.... It's not often that Princess actually stands up for herself! 


Given that I have the bulk of the support cast costumes over (120 at the moment) to make I figured that adding another 24 Winkie Costumes to my current responsibilities would be too greater job without any assistance.

The Winkies are the Wicked Witches Guardsmen that are dressed in great coats and big furry beefeater hats.

There has been no further discussion regarding what their costumes were to be made of or who was to purchase the fabric to create the costumes since early planning meetings. Each time I have mentioned winkies in the past when have found suitable fabrics and trims I been told that the costumes are to be sourced form existing stock or procured from opportunity shops.

So yesterday I kindly informed her that I would be unable to make the Winkie costumes and given that she only has 15 lead cast costumes to make I figured that taking on another 24 costumes seemed to be quite a reasonable request...

To this she replied..."Oh well...I'll just have to find someone else to make them then!" and then went on to say how there hasn't been any response to her requests for volunteers to help her make the costumes that she is making already.....


Is my frustration level showing???

Anyway


Today I suddenly realised...

That it is still "The Year of the Arse" Darlings

So lets Celebrate











Bottoms Up Darlings!...

    1. Don't you dare sully the Oubliette with that woman!

      She doesn't deserve to have any of the pleasure of Infomanic, even the painful bits. Humpf.

  5. The headpiece looks too too cool....

    Whenever I needed help with a big project my helper's sewing machine would always be "acting up". Must be catchy...

    As for the head cunt? Oops ... I meant Head Costumier.
    In the words of the lovely Roses, she fuck right off.
    Don't punch her yourself .... she's not worth the bruises to your precious and delicate hands. =)

  9. I have not the smallest clue about sewing, but understand that the "head coustumiere" is a payne in the ass.
    But what are these "modesty pants" you mention in the first part, I have no idea what it means and how this fits to the final Kostüm, sorry. You will show a picture of it, yes?
