Medea + new shoes!

So, life's been pretty changeable since last time I blogged.  That's pretty much the way it is, working as a freelancer, you can have a couple of weeks of just twiddling your thumbs with absolutely nothing to do, and then suddenly find yourself frantically working on four different projects at once!
This would be one of those times.

The main project I'm involved in right now is a production of Medea, by Euripides.  It's actually being staged in the ruins of London's Roman Amphitheatre, under the Guildhall Art Gallery, and we're trying to make it as close to the original way it would have been performed as possible, with an all-male cast, a chorus, and all the actors in masks.
I've actually branched out into Set Design for this show, which is proving interesting - and tiring, painting a backdrop is quite a workout!
Here's a sneak peak of how it looks so far:

The doors, before painting.

In completely unrelated news, my 1920s t-strap shoes from American Duchess arrived today and they're gorgeous and really nice quality to boot! (pun unintended but enjoyed nonetheless)
My feet are annoyingly between sizes so I went a size up to be on the safe side.  The shoes are a smidgen too large for wearing with regular tights, but they look lovely worn with some nice knitted socks, dontcha think?

(please forgive the crappy angle, it's difficult to get good photos of shoes when they're on your own feet!)
