Happy Halloween!

Well Myke and John's neat-o keen sewing machine went on the fritz on me last night (the bobbin mechanism is out of alignment, from what we can tell), so I hauled out the trust old straight-stitch Singer I borrowed from Peppe two years ago and, sure enough, it did everything quick and efficient. I was still up until 2:00 a.m. though, and I still have some hand stitching to do before tonight, so I'm leaving today at 2:30 to get some stuff done.

For the record, I tailored the waist of Quincy's pants, but still need to hem the cuffs and fix the clasps, and I hemmed off the sport top; I cut the third buttonhole into Daniel's jacket (couldn't get the darn buttonhole presser foot to work, which is what clued me in the machine was broken in the first place), but I still need to sew on the patch, plus I finished off the silk tie; I got Dryell for Yudi's dress (which worked fairly well), but I still need to fix the tears in the back and possibly hem it once I see him in the shoes; and I sewed up my duck's bill but still need to do my webbed feet.

Oh, are you're wondering what my costume is? Well today I'm dressed in black pants and shoes, a white Victorian silk shirt with cravat, a black crushed velvet hooded cape, with a golden skull-topped black cane and a black, white, gold and red Carnivale mask! Very unusual, everyone loves it.

And tonight? Well, since Quincy is getting dressed up as J. Lo, it seemed appropriate for me to dress like Ben, right? But I couldn't find a Daredevil costume, and a blind guy wouldn't have been obvious enough, and he doesn't have any defining characteristics or styles I could emulate.

So I'm going as a duck.


'Cause then we'd be J. Lo and...
