Today, once I left the office, my Spring Break officially started. I’ve been avoiding doing any school-related work. The closest I have gotten to school work is looking through the readings I need to do before class resumes after break. It’s been so nice. One of the things I’ve been doing instead is working on… Read More Refresh
After watching a recent episode of FaceOff, I decided to look into Kryolan Aquacolor to use for Death. I have been trying to find something that will cover without caking and is easy to apply.

It feels like every year I decide I’m not going to go to Ohayocon again. Yet, every year I end up going back. I am slowly learning to relax my attitude about Ohayocon. Yes, it began as an anime convention, and anime is still much of the focus, but it is slowly becoming a multi-genre… Read More Ever changing plans

Tonight, the first of my recent cosplay purchases arrives! My lab coat for Dr. Abbey and, hopefully, my tights for Dawn. I’m hoping that their arrival will inspire me to get more done.

I have been planning an original Dawn costume for a couple of years now. I started it back when there was still the Dawn Look-a-Like contest at Dragon*Con, if that helps. While the details have changed over the years, one basic thing that has stayed the same is an underbust corset. I really, really wanted… Read More Time for some reality
I ended up having three days of Halloween. Of course that meant three costumes! October 30th for class: Halloween: November 1st for ASL Night: It was so much fun wearing all three. I just hope I can do this again next year.
