Marcon 50 was amazing. And some of the best moments of the weekend were due to my costume choices. On Friday I was Dr. Abbey. I had a Literary Costuming panel followed by the Alternative Zombies panel. Dr. Abbey was the obvious choice. When I walked in to the room before the Literary Costuming panel,… Read More Marcon 50: The Costumes
This is what I get for making declarations. I just had a brilliant thought. While I love Arthur, I did go as him last year. And lately I have been thinking about having some Jaffa Cakes. So I’m switching out Arthur for Tim. Originally I was aiming for all literary costumes, since Marcon started as… Read More Did I say stone?
I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea to regularly post an update on what I’m working on and a quick overview of what’s coming up. I’ll start with what’s coming up since that’s quicker. First there’s Halloween. Right now my plan is Columbia in her pjs for class the Thursday before and Gaz for… Read More Upcoming and Updates – September
I now have five weeks until spring semester begins. That means a lot more time in the evenings to work on getting things done. -I have everything to get Dr. Abbey’s lab coat and t-shirts done, now I have the time to actually do them and finish her up. -I also now have the time… Read More There will be progress!
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.
Yesterday was so much fun. Well after I finally got the make-up looking right after an hour and a half. But that’s probably not bad for going from female to male. It took most people at least a few seconds to recognize me. That was probably the most fun part of the whole thing. When… Read More Fun times
Well, kind of. It turns out that we’re being allowed to dress up on Halloween at work. I wasn’t going to do anything since I need to work on Kyo’s wig. But as I was showing and telling my coworker Tim, we decided that would be great to wear on Thursday. So it seems I’ll… Read More Change of plans
Last Friday didn’t quite work out the way I was hoping. When your car runs out of gas just before your exit for work on a cold, windy morning, you find yourself not wanting to deal with a wig once you finally get to work. I’ve also learned an important lesson that you’d think I… Read More Oh well
I’ve realized something. I’ve set quite a large challenge for myself with the Tenth Doctor blue suit. I’ve got five yards of the pre-reweave Magnoli fabric. The patten calls for more. And I need to match up stripes. Granted it’s only at the shoulders, pocket flaps, and the collar. The only way I can know… Read More Worries and Discoveries
Tim Bisley is one of the main characters on the British series Spaced. Spaced is an awesome series created by Simon Pegg (who also portrays Tim) and Jessica Stevenson, and directed by Edgar Wright. I love this series and really connect with Tim. Tim is, simply put, a geek. He is a comic book artist… Read More Tim Bisley
