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

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

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

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

Desert Continuum BDU Pants

You would not believe how many entries I’ve typed up and failed to post. I’m just not on the computer as much when I get home at night. So I shall try to do better, as I have a ton of posts to make! Desert BDU pants: As I’ve mentioned before, my dear hubby purchased … Continue reading

January changes…and changes to costume to-do list!

Lots of good crazy happening in my life lately! As I mentioned before, I did find someone to work with to help me create Vala’s leather outfit but it will have to be postponed until 2014 (I’m hoping for Summer). Along with the postponement of that costume, a few others will be postponed and I’ve … Continue reading

No Delusions of Grandeur Here!

After a pretty successful trip last Friday, I picked up most everything I needed to finish Vala’s ‘Origin’ dress.  I’ve finished the bodice mock-up but am now seconded guessing parts of it as I tinker with it and figure out the best way to put it together. Since we will be closing on our house … Continue reading

‘Origin’ Dress Sleeve – Part 2

This should be a short post, but I wanted to throw up a picture of the actual sleeve and the fabric I had.  You can see what I mean about the serious differences.  The piece I have does have great texture, but it’s just not right to use for this project.  Alas, I shall keep … Continue reading

‘Origin’ Dress: Sleeve Discovery

A couple of posts ago I said I had an old chemise that I thought I may tear apart to use for the ‘Origin’ dress…well, that’s not going to happen now.  I watched a few clips of the episode and got a really good look at the sleeves, and now I can’t bring myself to use the fabric I … Continue reading
