12. Your costume idol.
Me.

Sorry, but no one else has said it 😉 But it's true. The one person to push and inpsire me to keep going is me. I don't do a single genre and I don't do fast and easy. And I like the fact that I can totally change mental gears in an aintsnace, like today:

1) melted and cleaned 4 pounds of clay to be able to sculpt, then I'll have to prep my head casts then lay the clay on then sculpt.
2) I'm going to mount some net to stabiliser and bead and sequin on a good old fashioned frame
3) Going to redraw another 16thC tailor's pattern for a comparison on shorthand in depiction of the patterns, and then publish it.
4) probably going to offer advice on pattern fitting, fibreglass does and don'ts and general gluing tips.
5) draft a 19thC princess gown using those tiny pattern diagrams that feature in patterns of Fashion and other books on clothing construction through the years.

Too often people see me as diabled and never take the time to really look at what I do, and certainly not beyond their own interests.
