Sleep Deprivation Theatre

Hey kids.

I've decided that I'm going to have two PhD parties; the first when I hand the thesis in for review, and the second if/when it gets accepted. You will all buy me drinks (NO tequilla), and everybody will be required to call me 'doctor' for the entire evening.

Really, I don't ask for much.

I ran into vorex today, and we bonded in that only way people seem to do these days - we ate lunch and spent money on entertainment items.

AND! I have to thank bonesinger for one of the most refreshingly honest descriptions of me I've had in a long time. Thanks!

Does anybody know a good seamstress who knows a thing or two about gowns and corsetry?

And does anybody know what it costs to change your name via deed poll these days?

Sorry; I'm a bit random today.

Mostly, I need someone to look at thre sketches I've made and a) tell me if it's doable (which it should be - fairly simplistic, elegant affair with sleek lines and such), b) how much fabic I will need (especially for the train, which will need to be of a fabric that needs to be ordered from Scotland), and c) if they can do the making of the dress.

My brother's wedding, you see.

Ah, well I couldn't be held responsible for amounts of fabric - especially if they're coming all the way from the other side of the planet.(!) My "expertise" is based on adjusting existing patterns, not working from scratch. I'd love to see the sketches though :-)
Good luck finding a qualified professional.
Oh, and allow lots of time for the execution. And have an emergency back-up dress.

There's a girl at my work who makes clothes for herself and others, does repairs, gives quotes, makes wedding dresses. She seems to know her stuff.

I'll ask for her contact details to pass on to you, can I have yours to give to her? I anticipate that she'll want to be paid for whatever time she spends looking at your designs and whatnot.

Well, of course she would want to be paid. No problem there.

I can be emailed at celrynnya at gmail dot com.

You should have received emails by now - if you haven't, please let me know :)
