Let the chaos begin! I have my app installed, my packing list ready, and three out of five costumes to complete. Here’s the plan: Friday Morning: First Doctor bathing suit for Bathing Beauties photoshoot Friday Afternoon: Harry Dresden for Legendary Sleuths photoshoot Friday Evening: SG-13 Woodland Uniform for the Intergalactic Military Ball Saturday Morning: Post-regeneration… Read More 17 days to go…
Today my hubby showed me an awesome new item in the Dragon*Con Store. This year they are holding their Inaugural Intergalactic Military Ball. As you can see, a multitude of fandoms will be welcomed, which got me thinking. At first, my Star Trek uniform dress popped to mind. Then I remembered my underused SG-13 uniform.… Read More Intergalactic Military Ball
That was a wonderful convention. I’ve already gushed about it over on Polymind, but I wanted to talk costumes a bit more. Arthur was the most recognized costume of the weekend. Come to think about it, I may make Arthur a staple of Marcon. I had my picture taken three times, which was great. I… Read More Marcon 2014
So, I got to thinking. I’ve got a lot of work to do to get Arthur’s wig in shape. Then a thought popped up: why not go genderbend instead? So I tried on the pyjamas and liked it. Then I tied my hair back and knew it would be perfect! So it looks like Arthur’s… Read More Slight change in plans
Now that I know what I’ll be doing with my life for the next year, my motivation has returned! Tomorrow I’m going to get some new razor blades so I can get Harry’s wig in better shape. Sunday I’m going to get working on his coat! Finally! Granted I’ve got less than a month to… Read More Motivated

The pattern for One’s bathing suit finally arrived, which is progress of a kind. I have gotten my sewing table up and… Read More I give up!
It’s now official. I’m going to MARcon! I’ve registered and reserved my hotel room. I am so excited! I was never this excited for Ohayocon, but I think I know why. First, I was going to the con every day from my apartment. I figured, why bother getting a hotel room? Last year I realized… Read More MARcon!!!
The con is over. And we had a blast. The pictures are posted. The summaries are written. But what about the cosplays? I really wanted to get to this sooner, but con crud got a hold of me. Now that it’s dying off, my brain is not letting me do anything else until I write… Read More Dragon*Con 2011 wrap up
I am writing to you from the car as we head down I-71 towards Atlanta. The car is packed and all seven of my finished cosplays are packed. I’ll write a more detailed post about my journey to get The Doctor finished soon. But trust me when I say it is an interesting one. So… Read More We’re off!
…you start working on cosplays for the next Dragon*Con right after it’s done. Well, I haven’t done it yet, but I do have a list that I want to work on for 2012, most of which will come to Dragon*Con. They are waiting for the money to be available in my budget. Once I get… Read More You Know You’re a Cosplayer When…
