I teach an Introduction to Popular Culture class. There are certain topics we have to cover, but mostly when and how is up to us. This week is my Fandom week. I encourage my students to come dressed to support something they are a fan of. Since I’m always wearing one t-shirt or another when… Read More Teaching in costume day one: Harry Dresden
I have finally protected my canvas wig head! That tape there on the desk arrived today! Immediately, I sat down, got out the rest of the supplies and pulled up “How to Cover & Protect Wig Heads” on YouTube: I have been watching this for years, waiting to find the right tape to use. Then… Read More Protection!
Remember how I said I was stepping up my game? Well, it’s happening! My Arda Wigs order arrived on Monday!! I literally took the wig out of the bag and put it on the head. It doesn’t look bad right out of the bag, but I’m going to brush it and give it some love… Read More New supplies!!
I am so messy. I’ve got costume parts all over the apartment. I’ve got accessories and shoes all over. I’ve got crafting tools and supplies all over. But that is going to change. Now that I’m home, period, I’ve got the time and the vision to get things in shape. First priority: the costumes. When… Read More Organization? What’s that?
My Arda Wigs shipment arrived! Both wigs and both sets of wefts! Yay!! The Dark Blue wefts were on backorder when I placed my order.

I have been wanting to put together a costume inspired by this art print for years now. I’ve always loved Junpei and that hair…that hair begs to be brought to life. But the hair has been the problem. I had a wig for a while to do a genderbent Junpei, but I never did anything… Read More Junpei is coming…finally!
I now have the ability to sew things at my sewing machine again. I just haven’t had the time to do any. Partially because of everything that is involved in getting the First Doctor Bathing Beauty right. I don’t think I’ve fully explained this outfit yet. It might help explain why I keep not getting… Read More It’s clean!
Right now there’s been no progress on Harry because I’ve had a total lack of motivation to do anything but what I have to for school. And I did a little cleaning. Everything is sitting in a laundry basket waiting to be assembled. Unfortunately my sewing table has gotten even more buried since I took… Read More Funding!
I will be posting fully later, but I wanted to post a couple of updates. I’ve washed five wigs quite successfully. I’m hoping to get them trimmed and styled tomorrow. Friday both my goggles and umbrella came for my First Doctor bathing beauty. Who knows, if I have time, I might even get started on… Read More Quick update
Yesterday my Arda Wigs order arrived! That means I have 4 new wig caps (2 black, 2 blonde), a wig head stand, and a canvas wig head! I got really lucky because they sell one size of canvas wig head, and it’s my size! Make sure to measure your head before your order a canvas… Read More Wig weekend
