When I created my very first Dungeons & Dragons character for a 3.5 edition campaign, I based her off of Pirogoeth from MegaTokyo. Very quickly she became her own character. She started out with a couple levels of Fighter before moving on to Wizard – she needed skills for fights that didn’t rely on magic.… Read More Pirogoeth (Wizard)
More than three years after having the idea… More than three years after starting to construct it… More than two years after failing and having to reconsider a big part of it… The Star Trek Fangirl is done!

While I have started working on the Robe of the Archmagi for Pirogoeth, I realized that I’m not going to have it in a place where I’m going to enjoy wearing it around DragonCon in time.

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’ve been spending quite a bit of time thinking about my costumes. The ones I’ve finished. The ones I’m working on. The ones I’ve figured out how to get done but haven’t actively worked on. I’ve been trying to figure out which ones to wear to which convention. And that’s when I noticed it. There… Read More Refocusing
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
The other day I got my Christmas bonus check. After I got a few more Christmas presents for people, I went shopping for myself. 😀 I only have a few more things to buy for my Doctor Fangirl! Here’s a quick rundown: First Doctor: Monocle – Done! Bought one from a costume store and replaced… Read More Fangirl fun!
I have gotten so much done lately. I really need to get caught up on here. I’ve been posting little things over on DeviantArt, since I can access it from work. I’ll try to do a quick rundown of what’s been done recently. The Doctor Fangirl has made huge strides toward completion. Recently I got… Read More Busy busy busy
