As I first posted way back when, I use a Kindle Keyboard as my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At some point I misplaced it. I knew where the cover was, with “Don’t Panic” in big, friendly, silver letters. But I could not find my Guide. While I was moving, I was going through things… Read More It’s alive!!!
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… Read More Good news, everybody!
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… Read More DragonCon Revelations

With about a week to go before I need to have everything done and at least ready to be packed and loaded into the rental car, I still have to finish two of my three costumes. The Bitch Planet overalls just need the NC painted onto them. But I keep freaking myself out over making the… Read More Stress Mode
I have had most of the materials to get my Star Trek Fangirl costume made. But I’ve been struggling with how to incorporate Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Well, not anymore. While thinking about the 20th Century Doctor Who Fangirl costume, I had an epiphany about DS9. I’ve been thinking of the ST skirt as one huge piece. But there… Read More Star Trek Struggles
Recently I decided to see how most people defined “casual cosplay”. It is confusing and debated and a mess. The reason was I wanted to add a new category on here and wanted to use a non-debated term. That is why I’m adding the “Comfy Corner”. I realized that I have done a few cosplays… Read More Casual/Closet debate

I am so messy. I’ve got costume parts all over the apartment. I’ve got accessories and shoes all over. I’ve got crafting tools and supplies all over. But that is going to change. Now that I’m home, period, I’ve got the time and the vision to get things in shape. First priority: the costumes. When… Read More Organization? What’s that?
