After talking with a friend yesterday and showing her some of my costumes, I have been told I should dress up in costume the whole week leading up to Halloween. So instead of dressing up the Thursday before to teach and on Halloween, I’ll be wearing six costumes in one week. It’s been an interesting… Read More Halloween Week plans
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. Aquacolor looked like it would work. So I went over to CosplaySupplies.com and took a look at what they had.… Read More Make-up Test!

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.

So frustrating. But I’m okay. I’m going to just wear the black gloves at… Read More Learning from failures
Okay. Now all I can think about is getting some white tights, making the gloves, and having a wonderful amount of options for Death! I think I know what I’ll be working on when I get back from D*C.
I put out there on Cosplay.com this question: Has anyone had any luck putting fake nails on gloves and have them look convincing? Turns out I can’t white out my hands for Death without leaving little white prints everywhere. For D*C I’m simply going to wear gloves, but I’d like to have white hands in… Read More Problem solved!
Everyone has seen this picture of Death: It took me a while to find out that it is indeed actual art and not fan art. Now, I love fan art. But I want to know if it’s fan art before I go and cosplay it. This look is so wonderful, mostly due to the jacket.… Read More Death (The Time of Your Life)
