the first was a complete success - the initial durability of those shiny purple pants was a tad questionable - so she made a few special modifications herself (movie line, ohk it's han solo in star wars, skiting about the millenium falcon to princess leia). the pirate king sang and danced that costume throughout three dress rehearsals and six performances.
in the five weeks post-show, wooz has been nipping back and forth to skool in every spare and not so spare moment (the rules say that the teacher must supervise that every stitch is made by the entrant) designing and sewing her heart out.
she entered her outfit in the FIRE category, using up some spare black fabric and making a fitted fire-jacket and some high-waisted shorts. dig those buttons.
the outfit was completed with a plastic red fire hat (which went home with another wanna-be fireperson) and some black pseudo-docs.
the outcome? no podiums this year, but wooz's outfit made it to the final ten entries for the FIRE section, and also got to the finals for EXCELLENCE IN SEWING. yep.
