I know we're way past #ThrowbackThursday but I just happened to stumble upon this old pic of me in my natural habitat in costume 😍 this pic was taken by my former mentor (who goes by the name of Fran Wagner; love her tons) ❀️ we were at a Renaissance themed festival (2010?) in Holland Patent (one of the towns in upstate New York) promoting Fran's small costume and design shop Razzledazzle Costume Co based in Utica, as well as me selling my own wares on the side. Yeah, I'm no stranger to merchant life, I even dress like oneπŸ€‘πŸ˜† From 2009-2011 I worked as a high school intern for this spectacular and lovable crazy costume designer during my senior year, and I remembered how we went on all...

From 2009-2011 I worked as a high school intern for this spectacular and lovable crazy costume designer during my senior year, and I remembered how we went on all sorts of crazy trips working on the most awesome projects! I really miss her so much; she retired and closed her shop back in 2011, right after I graduated high school (not sure if she's still active in designing costumes) 😒 I also remembered how my mentor had a good friend who let her borrow his refurbished and retrofitted school bus (yes, school bus) to use as her mobile pop up shop. I slept in that bus. It's Cher Bear approved πŸ™Œ πŸ€— 

Now that I'm back on campus, I really do hope that I'll get the chance to relive those days again via an internship or permanent gig🀞🀞 these days I've been toiling away trying to make sense of work-school-life balance. Of course I've been rebuilding my side hustle too, but I don't have as much time as I'd like to now that I have demanding classes again 😭😫 I guess this is what happens when you naturally bloom into a adult and college student at the same time πŸ˜…
