You know what finally made this goal doable?
I went on medication for depression.
Made my first shot at this, for a end-of-year formal banquet at my college. (If they didn’t want steampunkers, they shouldn’t have said the theme was “victorian”. ;) ) I liked the results, and I’m especially pleased with the goggles/hat combination (I’m the one standing on the far left of the photo), but unfortunately the skirt and boots I wore did not belong to me but to the friend I mentioned in my last post, so I can’t call this quite checked off yet.
Just won $1,500! grin That was unexpected! Only $600 left to go.
