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

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

Updates: Boots, New address

Just because we’re moving and my sewing area is packed up doesn’t mean I’m still not costuming – so to speak.  😉 Since Vala appeared in Season 9 as a regular, I’ve been trying to track down her boots.  I’m going to do a longer post on this later (with pictures) but I have three pairs … Continue reading

Random picture comparison

This will be a short, not so substantial post, but as I was flipping through Season 10 pictures a couple of days ago I came across a nifty photo from the episode ‘Insiders’ I thought I would put up next to mine from the convention a couple of weeks ago.  Yes I was costuming as … Continue reading

Fan Expo Canada 2012, Part 2

…and as I continue my post on Fan Expo, a little more about our trip.  Once we finally got through the ticket line (there has to be a better system for that, doesn’t there guys?) we hustled in to see if we could still get a photo op with Amanda.  There was a really super … Continue reading

Fan Expo Canada 2012, Part 1

 This was a very short, but good trip. We got started later than we’d planned and waited in line a lot longer then planned to get our tickets, but we did get in the doors before they capped the people due to fire codes.  That would’ve been awful, a four-hour drive to not get in.  The … Continue reading

BDU Pants…the drama continues!

Things didn’t go quite as planned Wednesday night, so I didn’t start cutting out a new pair of pants until last night.  That took a lot longer then I’d planned! Here is one of those, do as I say, not as I do moments.  Always make muslin if you’re using a new pattern for something … Continue reading

BDU Pants Remake Begins – Finally!

The pants reconstruction has begun! Even though I was going to do this months ago, as usual I wait until the last minute to get started.  In my defense though, I bought a new motorcycle two months ago and I’ve had several sewing jobs that I’ve needed to complete.  Mostly though, it’s been sewing jobs … Continue reading

Farpoint 2012

I had such a great time at Farpoint!  This was my first time back since 2006 and although I’m not thrilled with the new hotel (for many reasons), the people were as amazing as ever!  I learned that I will take Monday off next time instead of Friday as we got back late Sunday night … Continue reading
