Romeo and Juliet

Yesterday the students here worked very hard all day on Romeo and Juliet. All that's left now is some splatter-covering, Romeo's sword and we need paint their hands.

On top you can see (hopefully) the almost-not-quite finished cut-out. Below there are two students posing with the couple (Yes, Romeo is a girl. But hey, back then Juliet would have been a boy so whatever.)

And here is a close-up of Juliet's dress. We did a diamond pattern with dark purple flowers and added rhinestones for extra pzazz.

“This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath, 

May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.

Good night, good night! as sweet repose and rest 

Come to thy heart as that within my breast.”
