When I first forayed into the world of cosplay, I was a college student without access to fabric and sewing machines let alone any knowledge as to what to do with them. I was going down to Goodwill and seeing what I could find while styling my hair to match as close as possible. I… Read More Stepping Up My Game
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

The semester is winding down, which means I’m going to have three weeks of time to get work done. And I’ve been watching things that are really getting my brain in a costuming mode. Last week, I watched Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity! and of course I had to do something. Thankfully that led to finding… Read More Work is coming!
I noticed I had some really great coupons for Jo-Ann’s and decided to take advantage of them. Unfortunately, as usual, I arrived to find most of what I wanted already on sale.

I’ve been doing a lot of talking on here and not showing anything. I do have pictures of my work on the little hats I’ve made for my fangirls. I just need to free them from the camera. I’m sure each one will have its own post. There will be other posts soon about the Star… Read More I know, I know!
I have been wrestling with what the final look would be for my Fangirl. I recently decided to do knickers instead of a skirt, which has really inspired me! I think I finally have everything figured out, but I’ve decided to stop trying to post a breakdown until it’s done. Also, I just might be… Read More I think I’ve got it
As I mentioned before, I’ll be starting grad school next month. Actually, this time next month I’ll be getting the last few things together to prepare for the first day of class on the 24th. That gives me less than a month to get things ready for DragonCon. Which means I have to make one… Read More Small change
We have the internet and cable again! But more importantly, we’re I’m getting the living room cleaned up! This is important because that’s where I end up cutting and ironing my fabrics. The Fangirl’s been on hold recently because I had to go get more fabric. That just killed the focus I had. I was… Read More I’m back!
