Good news, everybody!

On Thursday I got news I have been anxiously awaiting. I will finally be graduating in December with my Master’s degree in Popular Culture!! That means I’ll be staying in the American Culture Studies Ph. D. program! Sadly for here that means I’m not going to have as much time for working on costumes as…

DragonCon Revelations

While I was at the Frenchy and the Punk concert at the Hyatt Concourse on Sunday, I was allowing myself to just relax and enjoy the moment. During that time, my brain decided to reexamine my plans for my Doctor Fangirl outfits. At first, I realized that a more Romani-Steampunk approach would work better because…
