I think that Statistics exam was the first test in the history of my Wash U career that I honestly haven't been able to finish. When the 30 minute mark hit, I just started writing random crap down for the last five (approximately) questions because I didn't have time to answer them like a rational human being. *headdesk* Hopefully I didn't royally fuck-up the rest of the bloody thing. Partial credit is my friend. *pets the shiny*
Speaking of shiny, my Cleopatra dress sucks. Fortunately Bonnie canceled costume class today and I have time (NOT REALLY OMG SO MUCH WORK TO DO) to fix it. I think I need to add the pleated train, fastened to the top of the band with a falcon pin. It doesn't work without it. Unfortunately that means another rendering (low quality?) of the back of the dress. I might as well add the shoes too. Bollocks. In case you were wondering, the dress is this beaded lotus-like creation that is pretty, but perhaps a little boring for Cleopatra. Like all of the Ptolemy line, Cleopatra lost the Alexander the Great Gene Pool Lottery like you wouldn't believe. I refuse to imagine that she didn't make up for that with political savvy and a totally fab wardrobe.
Color-wise I think I should stop fighting the image in my head. This dress is going to be gold. Very gold. Two shades of gold with gold beads. The only accents of color are going to be in her jewelry (earrings, necklace, cuffs, and the pin) and the beading on the straps. She's going to look like a Goddess when I'm done. She commissioned many a portrait of herself in temples all around Egypt, filling in for the deity du jour. The least I can do in honor of her memory is a little more of the same. I just have this sinking feeling that this time she's going to look more like St. Prada, Our Lady of Accessories. *sheepish look* Oops? Oh, well. There are worse things to be...
Like me. I have to go study for an Econ Quiz which means reading two chapters of the most boring history book ever to bore me, followed by a chapter of the textbook. BOLLOCKS.
Oh, before I forget, I'm doing two independent study projects for design/tech credit this year: I'm the wardrobe coordinator/costume designer/reprising my role as Costume Goddess for one of the Wash U Dance Theatre pieces (which I will see for the first time on Oct. 6) and I'm going to be the assistant designer for Hamlet in the spring. *hands* I'm actually really excited! The projects sound crazy/fun AND I'll have 2 out of 5 required design credits already in the bag! I'll never sleep again, but there's a possibility that it'll all be worth it in the end.
