I’m tentatively aiming for summer 2015… but that depends on a lot of factors. There is a lot of underwear to make, a vast sum of money to be secured to pay for the zardosis’ work, connections to be made and a lot of research to be done. I have pledged to wear the dress at the Costume College Gala Ball in Los Angeles… IF it is done in time.
However, at the risk of sounding pretentious, this is my magnum opus, my dream made real. I’m not going to rush it. Costume recreation is, for me, about the journey. It will be done when it is done, and not a moment before.
