Details coming together... and Baby Machu!

Its coming together!!! I added the crystals and did the hand beading on the bra last night... now I'm working on the details of the skirt.... so far I think it looks pretty wild and hot!! I normally wouldn't have done anything so attention getting to the drape/waist part of the costume but S has a long waist and she can get away with this drape I think. I really do love hand beading.. its just so time consuming!! But this print really called some hand beading... anything else wound't have worked near as well.

One good thing about making a costume for S is I can't wear it because she is so tiny... so there's no danger of me telling S it was ruined and keeping it for myself... like I might do if it fit!! These colors are really going to go well on her.
In Chinchilla world.... the baby Chin has been named... Machu! Also its a boy.... Check out how cute he is!!!!!

In the video with Machu is his mom, Powder, and you can see one of my poodle babies outside the cage trying to figure out what the baby is!

WOW!!! Now it's my turn to be jealous! Okay! I'm wanting another new costume! I LOVE the chiffon drape -- it's so elegant!
Machu is adorable! Anna's been asking for a chinchilla every since she was there; I keep explaining that I really don't need one more thing to take care of but still she's asking.
