So pretty.

Victorian architecture is another thing with me.

I would love a Victorian…

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

Since I’m feeling all nostalgic for BATO after finishing up Halo, here’s my Looker from 2009 at DragonCon!

…and yes, I’m being touched by His Noodly Appendage…

Thanks to The Clown Prince of Charlotte, here’s the footage from this past Sunday’s “Secrets of Cosplay” panel at #CharlotteComicon! (aka - watch Spider make funny faces and act like she knows what the hell she’s doing)  but seriously, it was a great discussion, with some great info.

We discuss:

Jumping In - Getting Started: DJ Spider
Construction Cheats: Amberle Linnea
Finding/Making Stuff: Todd B. Lacey
Bringing the Character to Life: The Clown Prince of Charlotte
Cosplay Politics 2014: Eve Madison

#TipTuesday Office Supplies While I shop at fabric stores and hardware stores when getting ready to start a project, I think I spend a good chunk of time with office supplies as well, one of the unsung heroes of my work space: * Rulers of various sizes (including an L-shaped metal beast, not pictured) * Scissors for cutting paper and patterns (keep your fabric scissors for just fabric!) * Scotch tape and masking tape * Hole punch (for filing my notes and print-outs in folders) * Pencils, pens and markers * Pencil sharpener * Paper clips * Standing document holder (so great for keeping pattern instructions or measurements handly and visible) * Post-Its (I stick ‘em on everything!) * Various circle and shape-makers. What do you keep in your “office”?

Halo debuted at #CharlotteComicon today!

Another cosplay that’s been in the Bucket List for a while, and I was so happy to finish her!  After wearing her for a few hours, I can tell there are a few things I still need to tweak before HeroesCon in June, but I’m pretty satisfied with the result (even if it’s a tad obscure)

For something that was a pile of leftover fabric on Friday morning, my Alice costume came together pretty well by Saturday night :)

Halo will be making her debut at Charlotte Comicon today! Cosplay panel at 12:30!
