Horrible about updating

So life has been hectic! I've done several more conventions, made several more costumes, and have been busy trying to find a job where my husband is stationed. Thus the lack of updates. I also have started a geekery website, so that's been taking up my time as well. Here are some pics to show what all has been going on as of late...

MTAC 2012 - Here we wore Ouran and My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic. I'm Applejack! ^_^

The weekend after was ConGlomeration 2012 in Louisville, KY. Here are some pics from that convention!

Lucy as Codex : She won in the Journeyman Class!

Dead Woody : His wife was Buzz

iCosplay as Arwen : She won Master Class!

My 99 cent Poncho Leia (From an unreleased Doll outfit)

My Princess Zelda from LoZ: Skyward Sword

Link and Zelda! <3

Zelda, Link (Dorian), and Ghirahim (Cy) - From TL;DR Cosplay!

Us again!

Smooching the Link! - We ended up taking Best in Show!

In May Dorian and I went around the Renaissance Festival here in Tennessee as Link and Zelda...
On a date in Skyloft? ;)

Best Link Ever! <3

Watching a Show

That was a LOT of fun!!!!! And it's a super comfy costume.

In May, TL;DR Cosplay participated and did a huge tour of comic book shops for Free Comic Book Day 2012... We went as Young Justice / Teen Titans and frankly, we look awesome! There was another cosplay group out and about that day dressed as Marvel characters, so it was fun to play up the DC / Marvel rivalry a bit.

TL;DR as Young Justice (we adopted Raven!) at Rick's Comic City - Donelson, TN

Myself as Black Canary

Most recently, Mary LouWho and I attended the Star Trek Convention here in Nashville in June. We went as Yeoman Rand and Nurse Chapel. Cy also went as Reboot!McCoy and my friend Rockann went as a Redshirt.

Nurse Chapel - Relaxing

This is why Kirk never sends us on away missions...

Best away team EVER!

What is it!? A Tribble!? I shall call him Spock

It's a tree! :D

TL;DR at ST Con

Tribble Love!

So I know this update was HUGE, but I think it's well worth it. My next blog will probably highlight my entire Rose Tyler collection, and how it has grown. ;D

In the meantime, feel free to visit my Geekery website,!

Kaylee Prairie Harpy Update

So the dress is COMPLETELY sewn together and hemmed! I've also made the belt to tie around it as well. Here are some pics of the dress sans pink doily thing....

Flash...God this is cute...

No Flash

No flash - need to iron it again

With the flash on

Kaylee Prairie Harpy and ROSE TYLER STUFF!!

So here's one of the costumes I'm working on for Chattacon.

See how the sleeves are sewn into the princess seams? Yeah about that...

So here are some progress pics. All I have left to do is cut out and serge the back skirt pieces, add the sleeves and hem, attach the skirt and side panels, then I'm done!

Front - No Flash

Front - With Flash


An idea of how I'm going to attach the sleeves along the princess seam.

I also need to get another pink doily that matches the flower so I can make the corners and make it rectangular.

Rose Tyler

So I showed off the boots from Boom Town and the Diesel jacket from "Aliens of London". Here's what else I've scored as of late...

Rock & Republic -Scorpion jeans in Addict Wash

These jeans are seen throughout Rose's tenure on Doctor Who. I'm super stoked I found a pair in my size!

Adidas 35th Anniversary Superstar II - New York

These are seen in The Christmas Invasion as well as The End of Time: Part 2. These are awesome!

I've also scored the Firetrap "Harrie" jacket in black from "The Empty Child". w00t!

Next up, I'll be starting my Disney Cinderella gown soon! ^_^

Costuming updates!

I'm really bad at updating, but that's because I've been busy building costumes...

Here are a few of my latest acquisitions:

Hobbs black buckle boots - AKA Rose Tyler's boots from "Boom Town"
They cost a fortune but totally worth it - plus they've never been worn!

Diesel jacket - As seen on Rose Tyler in "Aliens of London"
This one was hella cheap!

I'm also making the hoodie from Christmas Invasion as well as starting on Kaylee's prairie harpie dress. I also need to start on Cinderella - either the gown or the poor version - for the Disney meetup next month. @_@

A much overdue update...

Sorry everyone! Life has been hectic - Cons, D&D, Getting Married, Sewing, etc... But here are a few of the things I've been working on lately:

The Joker - Arkham Asylum/City version (aka also kind of Animated Series-ish too)
I made the entire outfit save for the gloves and undershirt. That means the entire tuxedo, the bowtie, the vest, the flower pin, as well as dying the wig. All me. :)
BTW - Anyone wanting to do a pinstripe Joker suit - I totally have an awesome source on the purple pinstripe fabric (took 6 months to find!)

Also - I made the Harley Quinn corset as well as the gauntlets and wig. I also added the diamonds to the pants.

Renge Houshakouji - Ouran High School Host Club

I found the fabric for the main part of the dress at Sir's Fabrics for $1/yd - I bought 10 yards because I knew I was going to have to double up the fabric (It's hella thin!!!) as well as line the dress in muslin.

I'll work on that tonight. Promise. :D
