Another Lesson Learned

Another DragonCon down. Another amazing time. Another shift in my personal attitude toward costuming. Trying to get into costume and looking good left me frustrated often this year. Sharing a room with five other people, two of which had costumes of their own, after attending conventions without any other costumers in the room was interesting.…

Marcon 50: The Fabric

Like I mentioned before, I learned a lot at Marcon this year. My first panel on Friday was “Choosing Fabrics”. I figured between my costuming and working at Jo-Ann’s, I should go. I am so glad I did. I knew two of the three panelists, one through Prydon Academy and the other lives here in…

This year Ohayocon has their Found Item category for the Masquerade. They only allow Found Item…

Assembled!

The First Doctor Bathing Beauty’s suit is finally sewn together. I just have to add a couple of things so it closes and the bloomers will stay up. Also, Harry’s new coat continues to inch toward completion. Hopefully I will have pics up soon!
