WIP Wednesday

Quick update on Savannah. She now has two arms.
She also has a huge dress with a ton of white. 'Nuff said.

Brazilian Cabaret

More than half of 2018 is over. Where has the time flown to? Some updates about my life... I've dropped my Bachelor of Design and finished a Diploma of Accounting instead. Uni is just way too expensive, especially when you're an international student.
At least I passed my Diploma of Accounting with flying colours (high distinction in every subject. Woot!... And yes, I'm bragging ;P) so there is that :D Been working hard for the better part of the year so now it's time for some fun and relaxation while job hunting.
Savannah has seen some progress. Not as much as I had hoped but completing the over-one stitches of her right arm is an accomplishment I can't wait to show off. I dislike over-one stitching but I just can't give it up when the results are just so satisfying.
It might not be obvious in the photo but in real life, the different stitches lend a 3D effect, giving the impression that she is wearing the dress and the skin is under all the fabric and hair. If that makes sense? Anyway, moving on...
Last weekend, Sean took me to a Latin cabaret to celebrate. I had the time of my life. The lights, the costumes, the song and dance... I'll let the photos speak for themselves :)
The show was Viva Carnaval!, a Brazilian Cabaret. The venue was The Palms at Crown Melbourne.
The dancers were so talented.
My favourite part of the show was of course the grand finale with the elaborate feather costumes.
Did I mention the dancers were stunning too?
And yes, I managed to get pictures taken with them after the show ^^
They're really tall.
Or I'm just really short :P
And here's me with Sean.
Till next time, Happy Stitching!
