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

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 Desert Hair

Continuing with the desert theme this week, I present a blog on Vala’s hair when she was in her desert camo.  Laugh if you will but you’ll get to see picture of me with ridiculous curlers in my hair if you stay tuned.  😉 Observations:  Vala’s hair in this outfit is thick and full, has … Continue reading

Out with the old…

…so 2012 has seen a lot of things.  I completed a few new costumes (which probably still could use some tweaking) and have done research for several more. Although I haven’t been posting anything the last two months, rest assured that my mind is still going and I have been doing costume research.  Hopefully after … Continue reading

Happy Halloween 2012!

This year was a pretty low-key Halloween, but good all the same.  After spending Saturday working on the house, we headed out to our friends the Cole’s for a Halloween party.  Sarah always has a great spread and the company is always enjoyable. As much as I’d have loved to wear something more elaborate my … 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 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

Denied & Still Waiting

You know what one of the biggest bummer’s about costuming is?  Finding a great fabric that’s perfect for a costume and then not being able to get enough of it to complete said costume.  So frustrating to spend so much time looking and then bam….denied!  I may also add that another huge bummer is when … 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
