      My church will do a mini Christmas production year end. I volunteered to take charge of the props. I have to make back drop with help, shepherd costume, sheep, angel costume and wise men. Yeah it is the manger scene where Jesus was born. I just found out that the Bible didn’t mentioned that angel have wings. Anyway I still have to do the wings for the children sake.

      First up, I had to get the material. It is not easy because in Penang, there aren’t many craft shops. This production is with no budget at all. Therefore everything I get has to be low cost. I am glad Penang has Kamdar that sells variety of cloth.

      For angel costume, I need to make a tutu. First I google for patterns and I found quite helpful instructions with beautiful tutu. The angel tutu will be all white but this one I made for Emily is a fairy tutu. It is not part of the Christmas production. Just for fun for Emily. Believe me it is very easy to make. Let me know if you want to make one, it cost less RM10 to do this and no sewing skills required.

      Here is the picture…

      Next up is the wings, hey any of you know where I can get cheap white stockings or pantyhose?

      I saw Tesco here selling angel wings and also the wand. But if you are making one, I’m eager to know how do you make one. 🙂

      I will let you know if I find cheap stocking in pasar malam. But, how many do you practically need? There is a shop in the same row with the famous Guan Yim Temple actually is the supplier of pasar malam goods which came from China.

      If you need a lot, may be you can get there. You might get dealer price.
