Life Update: Where Have I Been?

So it's been two weeks since I've last posted, and I can't apologize enough. It feels like I've been away for so much longer than that!

Anyway, as you guys probably already know, I've been going to art school for theatrical costume design & technology since August, and recently, everything has just begun snowballing and getting super crazy! I have about one month of my first year left to go, and suddenly, everything has gone into overdrive. I've had a million and one projects due all at the same time (many of which you can see if you follow me on Instagram), and I was selected to be on the wardrobe team for the biggest production of the year -- our featured production of Guys and Dolls!

The cast for this production is between 40 and 50 people, and I wish I could post a video or something, because our cast is absolutely phenomenal. Seriously, we have some Broadway level talent here at my school. And while we only have 40 to 50 cast members to juggle, each cast member has an average of 3 different costume looks that they wear. Meaning we have approximately 150 costume looks in the entire show. You can only imagine just how crazy that is.

These are JUST the men's hats and shoes! Not to mention all the shoes that didn't fit on the table and had to be stored underneath!

Because of all the craziness of this show, on top of all the projects I've had due, I haven't had much time to blog. Heck, I barely have enough time to eat, sleep, or shower these days! I have a few posts planned though, and as soon as life calms down a bit, I'll be back up to posting weekly as usual. I really appreciate you guys for being so understanding!
