Vinyl records and a wedding

It has been a long work week traveling back and forth from Albuquerque to Santa Fe.  Lots of driving but lucky for us the landscapes combined with monsoon season make the drive less boring.  An unexpected bonus of rain is that the wild horse herds come down out of the mountains and we get to see a lot more of them in the mesas and valleys along our travels.

Very excited because I have one costume out for a photoshoot, two more in the works and a photoshoot and trailer this weekend for the upcoming short 'Low/Fi'.

Having a good time being Production and Costume designer on this short because I'm leaning towards a vintage  unique style with a European Parisian flair.  Fun!!  And when filming takes place this month we get to do a wedding scene !!  

So here is a peek at the bouquet (not finished yet) and some vintage plaid dress choices for our lead actress.  If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram you can see the full dresses.  

Stay creative my friends.

Night Blooming Flowers

This is the day I wait for all year, when my Moon Flowers bloom every evening.

Yes it's a weed technically and yes the seeds are dangerous but it's so beautiful and it attracts these huge hummingbird moths (pictures of those later) so it is vital to the ecosystem just don't be stupid enough to ingest the seeds.

Continuing to work on current projects and hopefully some good news tomorrow on our new studio space- taking a leap!!

I will leave you with a picture of the stormy skies on our drive home.  Rain and hail, monsoon season has been good to the desert this year.
