Slight delay - moving
I just wanted to give a quick update, as I have been rather silent due to finals and life. There is going to be a slight project delay as I am in the process of moving back to California. The reason for moving is a good one: My S.O. landed an amazing new job, but it does require relocation.
So what does this mean for Avant Gore?
This will end up pushing back my senior project by about 3 months, as I won't be able to take my final class in the winter quarter, but instead it will be in the spring quarter. So, rather than having all of my ensembles done by May, they will be done around August/Sept. The printed materials for the backers will be getting sent out by the end of the month, but the corsets will be pushed back until end of June/early July. I am going to work my hardest to have all of the backer corsets done by the end of June.
Now, back to packing, since I have about 4 days until the movers get here! =D Wish me luck in the move and let's hope for a speedy re-settling in CA so that the project may continue~!
Thank you everyone. I hope the holidays were good to each of you and that the new year is looking bright and shiny.
