I'm not on their e-mail list, so I didn't get the memo that costume was optional - I think at this point, they should probably give up and just call it their holiday party - but apprentice lisettelaroux and I dressed up in seasonal cotehardies. I was in green, and she was in red, and I made insane holiday headpieces for us both:
I went a little crazy with the seasonal greenery and the hot glue gun, but I think they turned out well.
A couple of detail shots:
Yes, I stuck rhinestones on the leaves. They glittered beautifully, what can I say?
I even got my hair to mostly do what I wanted it to do:
We had a good time; there weren't many people performing (see: the whole it's really a Christmas party thing), but the pieces we had worked on sounded great and we had a nice time singing even if it was only a few of us.
And Lisette and I showed everyone how it's done. Isn't that what it's all about?
