I'm working on a gown that is going to reflect me as an artist a bit. So a tad cliche, but ultimately a little bit not quite one thing or another.
I've sort of talked about all my influences but basically I'm dipping in to a lot of my past and a lot of my interests.
And I've dealt with terrible reaction to allergy to make it!

I'll try and post some updates here as well, it's just hard as it's not a finished project, I'm not sure if "Scraps" gets shared :)
Busy as of this weekend, though technically I should be busy well in advance :)
I'm offering a limited series of workshops at the Central Library here and this Sunday sees the first: the "Start your engines" type of workshop. Basically to hopefully dig a few ideas, not define what to do. Because seriously costume is as broad and wide and invested as human history. 
Anyway, in order to actually have some sort of collow up I have been updating my website, including my nearly complete list of costumes. This includes my very earliest works! So much improve! I'll never be embarassed by my early work, because I never judge people on their early starts. Only how they respond- because you don't hassle anyone for starting out.
Anyway: www.arrayedindreams.com
New featured content and a rejig of the menu. I do a lot of cross over stuff but basically if it has no magic or advanced tech then it goes in historic/historic inspired. Danielle went from one to the other a heck of a lot. But even though that gown is pure fantasy it could have happened in rreality just with a severe shift of materials available. Because Ever After was stripped of magic it is a better fit. And all the weird stuff in Moulin Rouge can be put down to hallucinations.

Autodidact in the genre of costuming, but BSc (Biochemistry) and Dip. Perf. Art (actress) to boot so I will geek at you from all angles.

"If we are anything we must be a democracy of the intellect. We must not perish by the distance between people and government, between people and power.... And that distance can only be conflated, can only be closed if knowledge sits in the homes and heads of people with no ambition to control others, and not up in the isolated seats of power."
J. Bronowski, The Ascent of man.

Current Residence: Kiwiland
Favourite genre of music: theatrical, be it oratorio or opera or musical theatre
