Saw part I of Doctor Horrible with Tanja and Rebecca this morning. BRILLIANCE. Go see it, now!
And tonight, we have (cheap student) tickets to Spring Awakening! Clearly, today is a day for fabulousness and musicals.

EEEE! I just found out last night that Terry Pratchett is going to be at the Union Square B&N tonight! And I have permission to get off work early! TRIUMPH!
So. Saturday and Sunday, my friend El came to visit! For her 18th birthday, she went to see Drew Sarich, one of her favourite actors, playing Valjean in Les Miserables. All was merry! We had great adventures with nonexistent transportation and both got a pair of the most ridiculous shoes ever.
I'm kind of obsessed with the shoes, and they would actually work really, really well with my Maeve costume, so I'm currently debating between them and my Docs. They're clear plastic 6" platform heels--making me 6'3"--with sparkly green accents, and they are SO MAEVE IT HURTS. I'll bring both alternatives with me to Philly and decide there.
Speaking of Maeve, I finished the wig last night! Well, I might actually bleach some of the brighter strands a touch whiter, as it's gotten a bit too far away from the glacier look, but... EEE! Pretty! See here and here. I love the tacky tiara--It makes the wig! I found it in a box of equally tacky tiaras, probably intended for Daddy's Little Princess's quinceanera. A bunch of them actually had a "15" in rhinestones. I love it!
And the tackiness of the tiara and the potential shoes nicely offsets the elegance of the toga top, and everything comes together beautifully. When I first set out to put the costume together, I was worried that the costume wouldn't have the vibe and personality it needed, but I see now that my fears were completely unfounded.
Now I need to figure out some kind of crazy knitting project that will allow me to use all my leftover yarn. It's so pretty, I can't just let it collect dust in my closet!
