So you want to wear the curtains?

I have had an idea for a performance for a long time and it seems it has found a home in this piece. For the fantasy drag/mime interlude I am entertaining the idea of creating the costume from the set. The manky curtains become the train of the dress, and the dusty crochet rug becomes a kind of corset.

Yes, apparently I get muscles by October. Funny how a dress made out of a curtain seems more realistic than THAT happening.

 

Now for a prototype!
