our very own captain tightpants! i wish i'd taken this pic on the first day, after a couple of evenings the pants (unfortunately) became more relaxed. would you believe we thrifted this entire costume (less the gun) in one evening?
me as kaylee. (note the giant brontosaurus bling). not pictured are my coveralls & boots & it's kinda hard to see that my hair is up in buns.
imperfectmedium & casanovacoconut as zoe & mal, aim to misbehave.
imperfectmedium & xandersgirl serve up ramen from the bar.
decor photos are left all Big & Damn-like so you can see all the detail...
credenza, on the Companion Guild side.
door beads & wall draping. just out of the pictures are the bean bag chairs & mountain of pillows we set up.
around the low coffee table we put luxurious pillows, sort of sushi restaurant style. on the table are gold embroidered placemats, a bowl of fortune cookies, a live bamboo, bonsai & bowls of wasabi peas. check out my punch fountain in all its glory in the background. the black rug came from my old room at my mom's.
we strung paper lanterns & parasols & door beads from the ceiling using bamboo poles (we weren't allowed to put push pins or anything into the walls.)
this is great shot of xandersgirl's awesome cherry blossom tree, imperfectmedium's rice paper window replicas & of the amazing red brocade throw we thrifted to go over the couch.
again, i can't get over what an awesome job imperfectmedium did on the windows (& the saloon doors & so many things not pictured) & the amazing set-up executed by chavvah in the Companion Guild. you really did decorate like a mofo darling & it looked amazing.
my uncle rob relaxes in the arm chair with the lovely gold throw. you can also see the neat art we thrifted above him & the vase filled with silk lotuses, beside him
most of these are of the Companion Guild side of the room. i encourage those of you who also took pictures (pseudohistorian?) to upload & email me so i can add them to this post.
i can't believe i didn't get the hitching post & vera, the pillory in action & a good shot of our bar. to be fair, that i don't have any saloon photos indicates how packed it was. i kept waiting for a dead moment when the crowd had thinned out (so as not to interrupt/disturb any of the suite patrons) & well, that never happened.
