Shawn Ogg (Chris Church) and Magrat (Adele Wheeley) from Elmwood's production of Lords and Ladies (adapted from Terry Pratchett's novel) that I directed and costumed in 2005.
Well now I have been all quiet on account of being very busy, and I now have children to entertain and educate for a week which is very cool! Master 13 is joining two friends to be Norman soldiers at some school thing and tomorrow we are going to find fabric to make chain mail vests. In the photo above, I used a bobbly black knit and sprayed it silver. It works for a given value of 'works'. (Actually I'm more proud of Magrat's Queen Ynci armour, made from nasty vinyl, a long line bra from the op shop and lots of fat piping rope. We lived with the sprayed silhouettes of that tab skirt on our laundry floor for years!)
Today we visited the Weta Cave, which is Weta workshop's shop and museum, and saw and handled their special chain mail. It's so very, very cool and a looong way from knitted string or my bobbly knit version. For one brief moment I wanted to work there more than anything in the world! It passed... :)
