The curse of having a low budget means so much has to be compromised... i wish i could outfit everybody from head to toe with costumes from malcolms... but alas! its not going to happen. Main characters and specific character types will definitely get 'the whole shebang', but its going to be a case of teaming one of their victorian skirts with high necked blouses from op shops and shawls etc... tuxedo shirts are a good option for the men as they are easily tweaked to look 'victorian'.

had my first app at malcolms last weekend, found the perfect dress/outfit for The Lady and The Miss. Also scored a fabulous full length cape with a half cape trimmed in royal purple and attached at the shoulders, so i have a tick next to The Pervert. Jacket choices galore for The Sleaze, will take the one that fits Rod the best i think...

Have also decided on dates for shooting and rehearsals etc... so its starting to feel like its all coming together (when it doesnt feel like im on an out of control freight train!)

First rehearsals this weekend! Bobbies and Beefcakes and Blackness for Sunday lunch, oh my!

location scouting and storyboarding

vintage bikes...

trying to get hold of a vintage ladies bicycle (ive given up on the penny farthing idea) I see the exact type of bike that i want, cause hipster chicks are riding them in the city - but i havent had any luck finding somewhere that hires them out for the day. So i contacted Melbourne Vintage Bikes in Brunswick( they restore old bikes and sell them) to see if they would be open to the idea of hiring one of their awesome bicycles for a day... now just waiting for a response....

The Wall is Finished! (almost)

At Josh's again last sunday, the wall is finished (except for the painting bit)

Thanx to Josh and Ross (The Cardboard Masters) I wouldnt have been able to do it without their expert knowledge on cardboard construction... check out their website:

cardboard brick wall and pvc bars on the window...

Spent last sunday at Josh's with Amanda building the barred window and wall, apart from the frame and the bars it will be all cardboard :)

felt like i cut out a million bloody rectangles (for the bricks) but in reality we barely broke 200...

The three frames (hinged together to make a 3 metre wall) are finished and we managed 'lay' enough bricks to make it 1 metre up the wall...

Im not cut out (pun intended) for this physical labour malarky... i was exhausted for 2 days afterward :(
