I can design costumes, and could probably make a few things with the right materials. I need felt to make hats, more felt than I have access to right now. My family has done various crafts over the years, so we have a house full of various odds and ends. However, if I'm to pull off the more technical side of things, I will need materials I do not currently have. If only we lived in a more urban area. You would not believe what the modern populace throws away.
I may be a lady, but I am not above dumpster diving.
