Kate, who is becoming Vala or Aeryn (depending on the day)

I'm a costumer, seamstress and new Mom that enjoys the challenges of recreating costume seen on screen, as well as wearable garments. There's lots I could tell you about myself, but we'll save that for another day. ;-) (aka: HothGirl)

Vala’s Black Leather Costume Continued…

Apparently my images never uploaded from August and I’ve sort of been on hiatus since CreationCon in Chicago.  For those interested, my hiatus has included spending time with my munchkin that’s growing way too fast and working on an Aeryn Sun costume – plus all the normal boring ‘adult’ things.  🙂 So the black leather … Continue reading

Vala’s Black Leather Costume

This has been a long time coming and a few tweaks are still needed but here it is! More later. 🙂

Stargate Con Chicago – day two

We got in yesterday after a longish drive.  Only wore one costume Friday but have had two on today and will change at least one more time before the day is out. Have met a bunch of great people! Sure to meet sine more before the weekend is out.  🙂  Some really fun costumes too, … Continue reading

At least I’ve got hair!

My hairYes, yes I do.  My wonderful, awesome, amazing stylist did a great job and I have a near perfect hairpiece to wear with my Season 9 costumes now.  🙂  Must remember to do something really, really nice for her for Christmas!  Never before have I had a piece that looked this real and natural.  … Continue reading

Creation Con List gets smaller…or more realistic

As I previously mentioned, I had a laundry list of things I wanted to get done. Hanging out with my family over shadowed that so with about two weeks left before the convention, I simplified my original list and made it more realistic. I found great fabric for my ‘Powers That Be’ Qetesh skirt. And … Continue reading

I seriously didn’t post this?

When I threw up the post the other day I didn’t realize this blog hadn’t been updated since last year! *face palm* I thought for sure I made a post in February after I made the munchkin her first Stargate costume. Alas, I was mistaken. So better late than never, my amazing little girl’s first … Continue reading

Times flies…when a convention is coming!

It’s August 1st and my list of things I wanted to get done before the Creation Stargate Con this month is still long.  Long as in I haven’t been able to do hardly anything.  I half expected this with a new child, being employed full time and you know, real life getting in the way … Continue reading

Happy Halloween!

October 31st, Happy Halloween! To be honest, I’m not technically dressed up today. I suppose I could tell you I’m dressed up as a new Mom who’s pants don’t fit (yet) – so yeah, we’ll go with that. 😛 I could’ve worn by desert jacket and bdu’s however it would’ve been lost on the people … Continue reading

Long time no post

So I am absolutely ashamed of myself that I haven’t posted more! Silly me, I honestly had no idea how much energy it takes to grow a human and how tired I would be. And silly me again because I thought I could catch up on some things while on maternity leave – jokes on … Continue reading

Vala’s Camelot (Matnernity) Dress

Seeing as how I’ve been slacking off keeping up with the blog, I figured now would be a good time to do so since the baby is due any time now! Last weekend my hubby packed up and headed to Shoreleave in Hunt Valley, Maryland for the weekend to vend. Since that weekend marked the … Continue reading
