A Little Bit of Pixie Dust and Magic…

Tomorrow is the Big Day. Bras for a Cause 2011, 6 – 10 p.m. at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, Mich. I’m very excited to model the black leather bra I created — with a LOT of help from Diane and Matt Baldwin — to a song from the musical Grease.

The bra has been done for a while, but then just a day or two ago, I got another idea. The shoes I planned to wear — high-heeled, black suede, well, they just seemed to need a little more “oomph.”

My bff Jennifer Bopp  Stegbauer, in from Germany, and I went to work yesterday morning. We took those plain black shoes, covered them in Elmer’s Glue, and dusted them liberally with multi-colored glitter. They are totally transformed, and I can’t wait to see how they look under the bright lights of the stage. What fun!

A little bit of pixie dust and magic can go a long way. Wonder what would happen if I clicked my heels together? Do I dare to find out?

Tickets to tomorrow night’s event
are still available online at http://www.royaloakmusictheatre.com/ 
and will also be sold at the door. 100 percent of proceeds go to Gilda’s Club of Metro Detroit.

hi–lucy here–meau’s friend in gaylord//// ya might try using hairspray–a lot of it —-and then shaking the glitter (if you have any left) in your hair–spray once again for good measure. then you will glitter from head to toe!!!
i usually do this every year to celebrate Christmas and/or New Years. I have even worn it to Midnight Mass.
