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

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

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

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

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

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

Another late night

It was another late night but I got quite a bit done.  The lace is finished and looks decent so I can go ahead and sew the bodice together now.  However, I must remember to sew the trim on before I do that.  I wish I’d have taken a pictures with the phone last night … Continue reading

Sol’s Diner – Will work for food

Sometimes I find myself in a place where I need an escape or need to feel like I’ve completed something.  This particular costume is a result from a post-surgery staph infection.  Long story short, I had sinus surgery in March of 2011 (which went well) and developed a staph infection shortly after, resulting in two … Continue reading
