What it's like to make costumes for a movie...


60 ft. bridge we crossed in Montana, I think. No railings or anything. Just bridge. It felt like we 
were flying lol. :S

My time here in MI, only a week now, has been crazyawesomeandgreat. I've met so many new faces and stayed up sewing so late into the night. Our main staples are ice cream and peanut butter lol. And the train ride over was something else! I don't think I've ever seen so many beautiful and scenic places all at once!

As far as particulars, I can't give much of an explanation  of what I've been doing. It's called a 'media blackout'. Y'all will just have to wait to see the awesomeness we're whipping up. I must say though, that we keep each other going by telling stories and jokes and teasing. :)

Behind the Scenes

This week has just been a bit crazy. We all got packed and ready to drive to Jess's flight school, in order to get her all settled so she could start right away~ which didn't end up happening, due to numerous and repetitive problems with our van. We just can't seem to get the thing fixed once and for all. :S So, a little discouraging, and definitely disappointing!  On a brighter note, I leave for MI day after tomorrow!!!!

A few days ago, the Beyond The Mask costume team  made a youtube video of some behind the scenes footage, showing what the costuming department was doing. Watching it almost made me feel like I was missing out on so much, and I can't wait to get there! They've got a good many complete outfits done already, but there's still a lot to do. It also showed a shot of the embroidery, which was helpful to me as far as getting a feel for what they're doing. :) So enjoy this peek behind the scenes, and let me know what you think!
