Dance Magic Dance: RIP David Bowie.

We have once again lost another legend. But as the saying goes, legends never die.
My favorite movie of all time since I was young and until now, is Jim Henson’s Labyrinth and that fairytale world of the infamous Goblin King.
I had the biggest crush on him 😀

So, Rest In Peace David, may your influence, genius, and innovations still carry on.

. . . and now I leave you with my two favorite songs from this amazing movie.

TGIF and a DBZ Dictionary Page

I am really loving the idea of images being imposed onto vintage dictionary pages. So, I decided to look through some ideas and got a bit of inspiration. I wanted to make an image with LOVE. Also, a lot of my fiance’s friends and mine always call us Goku and Chi Chi. I found this really awesomeimage of them from their wedding and I found a vintage dictionary page for Love 😀

With a little bit of photoshop, I created this awesome image 😀

So Excited, I got my Cosplay in America V2 Book!

Happy Thursday! I am so excited! I got my Cosplay in America V2 in yesterday! It was a nice surprise, especially after such a crazy week!
I have been anticipating this book since I pre-ordered it back in March!
The pictures and stories are wonderful! It shows cosplayers in “real life” in their own environments working on the things they love most. It’s inspiring and amazing.

D.I.Y. Geeky Graphic Tank

I love Pinterest! The fact that I can find all different kinds of DIY ideas and tutorials, is awesome for when I am in a creative slump or super stressed, which is how I have been lately. So to keep my sanity, I decided to look through Pinterest for a small and fun DIY project for tops. I wear a lot of tanks to work, mainly because I am running around set like a crazy person and it can get really hot under the studio lights and in the building 😦

So as the title said, the DIY I found is how to make your own graphic tanks. To add some fun and creativity to the mix, I decided to create my own graphics, that have both geeky and fashion elements to them. I am just designing a whole bunch and then I will decide on which ones I am going to actually make.

So I tested the waters with one of my favorites 😀

Cardcaptor Sakura Cosplay

So I wanted to share my Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card cosplay. It was my first major undertaking in creating a cosplay from scratch.  This gown was a huge learning curve in pattern alterations and sewing.

In my eyes, it’s not perfect and I am working on fixing the gown and redoing the star wand.  I apologize, I don’t have many photos of this costume. But I will probably be doing a photo shoot in the near future with it, once I fix it up.

Here are some shots 😀

The Accessories I made included: Kero, The Nothing & Hope Card, The Star Wand (The Wings Broke) and Sakura’s Egg Backpack

I am so thankful I had my styling kit with me! I used double-sided fashion tape for the ribbons to keep them in the place, and I wore stockings which helped create a good base for the tape. I think the most challenging part of the entire costume was getting the shape of the skirt and the neckline was a definite trial and error.

One Problem:  My darling Fiance stepped on the back of my gown and the zipper split up the back. Once again thank goodness for my kit and quilters safety pins and for the fact it happened towards the end of the day! In the images above there is a shot from the back, you can see the pins holding it together. I was also grateful that the backpack hid the rip!

All in all it was really fun and a lot of people enjoyed my costume which I was super excited for!

I will share updates later once I get this fixed up 😀
