Here's a picture of the costume, the only thing that feels on its way to being complete.
I haven't quite decided on the puppet yet - I think it needs to be a slightly less refined character, to counterbalance all this prettiness! I was thinking of a porcupine, or maybe a worm, or something like that. I still need to attach a nest to my hat, and to find my magical object (I'm thinking that it may be a watering can), not to mention the making of the puppet and the bag. Still lots ahead, but I feel like I have some sense of direction. Interview is August 20th.
Let me know what you think, and don't hesitate to share ideas, tips and pointers!
