Costuming update and summertime giveaway

So, this completes the first week of my costuming job, which so far is pretty darn awesome. To be perfectly honest, I did not realize how much I had taken on, so blogging every day may not be too smart of an idea. Turns out with the costuming job and my current job, I am working 14 hours a day, which makes for a slightly difficult and stressful week.

However, I think writing makes me feel a bit better and more relaxed, so I believe I should continue for myself and for those who enjoy reading my ramblings. So here comes~

Since my last blog post, I have mostly been working on dyeing fabric. There is a ton of fabric to be dyed and all different colors and shades. WOOHOO! Spent a few days working with samples to find perfect shades, and spent all yesterday over at the San José Rep working in their dye room (they have a giant dye vat, which we do not have over at the Opera). So today, my partner and I were working mostly on the tie-dyeing 4-yard pieces of fabric that I was talking about earlier. It hurt >.< But was well worth it, because they turned out beautifully. So did my fingers: I am thinking that even nailpolish is not worth doing at this time, because it chips so easily from having my hands in water for such a long time. However, I do soak them in cuticle oil for a while at the end of the night, so that should help out a bit:

To be perfectly honest, nothing interesting is happening yet, so not much to blog about. But I am going to try to do as much blogging as I can while I have the time ^^; Oh, boy, I am excited!
And I think I may be boring you all with my stories of silly things and work, so I am going to just dive into it: giveaway, giveaway, giveaway~

time for giveaway

giveaway? why?
Well, first off, I have not done one in ages and I really love sending out packages. However, since I cannot send one to each and every one of you, a giveaway seems like a fun idea. Plus, since I was just a part of one and happened to win, I was so happy to get a package that I wanted to share as well. This time, I am doing a US only one, but once I get more followers, I promise to do an international one, as well. Sound good~?

Oh, and that "semi-secret" thing I was talking about in the previous post is a purchase I was planning to make that did not happen. I really want the black MacBook (the ones that were discontinued a few years ago), because they are so cool looking, but I am kind of sad that they are no longer available, so I found one on Craigslist that I wanted to buy. However, the seller was a dick, so I decided not to. I may still look for another one, but who knows. Maybe I should just keep the money for something more awesome (*´∀`*)

Cheers to all and til next time *kisses*
