Shiny! (Worldcon Costume update)

Work continues... we're on schedule!



The original glitter-paint embellishment on Conrad's jumpsuit didn't read from stage at Conzilla as well as I hoped it might. It needed tarting up a bit.

Last night bovil and I went to lobolance's house for dinner and he'd very kindly cleared and vacuumed the living room floor so I could spread the jumpsuit out and glue some acrylic stones onto it to catch more light.

I've got a few to add to the back, and *maybe* a couple on the legs, but it's amazing what just a little bit of embellishment can do. Not bad for something that started out a painter's jumpsuit, eh?
