Feeling Royal!

This month we designed and sewed a dress for Amanda Chapman in Tuscumbia. Anyone unfamiliar with her can find her 31 faces of Halloween posts HERE!  She is an incredible photographer, yet she dabbles in FX makeup like a goddess!

Recently she was selected as one of the top 30 artists for the NYX Face Challenge! The first challenge is royalty. Amanda asked if we had any royal dresses. we do of course! But, we decided to make her something special. Below are some process shots of making the dress week before last. But you can see the finished product in her challenge video.

We hope you love her look. If you do help her to the next round by voting and sharing. You can vote up to 3 times a day if you want. Enjoy!

Mardi Gras!

Happy Mardi Gras y’all! I have been loving the Instagram feeds of friends in New Orleans over the past week. One of my favorites is the Lundi Gras Red Beans Parade. Here is a more “mainstream” article about it. Enjoy! ARTICLE

I hope everyone here had a fantastic Mardi Gras Parade in Huntsville and Decatur! We saw some great theme requests come into the shop last week. We helped Abigail find the perfect “Paradise”  makeup for a zebra, and even dressed up  little red riding hood!

We had a fantastic weekend meeting over 800 drama students and educators at the Alabama Thespian Festival in Pelham over the weekend. We were able to provide demo makeup, teach kids about stage makeup and more! We will definitely go back next year! I will post more photos on the Facebook Page later.

Now for a couple of weeks in the shop before Spring Break hits. We are working hard on Pinocchio at Fantasy Playhouse Theatre, and helping with UAH’s Faustus. We will post more on how to see the shows as the time gets closer. Have a great week!
