I'm 25, married, owner of two kitties and a cosplayer!
Made mostly for posting progress and completion photos of my Loki and Thor cosplays for myself and husband respectively.
I've both judged and competed in competitions and have previously represented the UK in the first Eurocosplay! I pick stupidly detailed costumes and spend far too much money on them. Someone should probably stop me.
Always happy to answer questions!
The Penguin Foundation has a global call out for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
If you enjoy knitting as a pass time please please please do this. please.

signal boost this year again :D
Look at this little guy! I can’t knit so reblogging for anyone that can!
Currently on day 4 of my new job and I love it so hard! I’m head seamstress for the new ABC pilot Galavant. I’m really hoping it gets a series as it sounds amazing!
Also found out yesterday Alan Menken will be at the studio today! I didn’t think he’d be coming over tbh. This man pretty much made the soundtrack to my childhood!
One of the storyboarders is a similar age to me so we may have had a little flail over him coming today.
Watched Tangled for the first time since seeing it in the cinema. My husband pointed out that it feels more like a broadway production than a film due to the songs, amd I can totally see what he means.
It made me crazy excited for Galavant! Seriously, its got Alan Menkin composing for it and Dan Fogelman writing. It’s a new TV comedy fairytale musical with Vinnie Jones in it!
With Vinnie Jones!
Also the guy who plays Magnitude in Community. Pop pop!
More people need to be excited for this so it gets past its pilot episode!
Princess Academy was to be an animated short that would’ve featured all the female characters that debuted from the films that came after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs all the way up to Tangled, including Pixar films.
It was to be a musical on par with the segments seen in the Fantasia films, with all the females interacting with each other, singing, dancing and just enjoying each other’s company. The music was to be composed by Alan Menken.
Can somebody please make a petition to reform this idea?!
Omfg Charlotte is in it
I would sell my soul to Satan for this
OH MY GOD
Oh, I should have pointed out that Eilonwy is in it as well. She’s the little girl Tiana is holding her hand out to, behind the door.
BO PEEP IS IN THIS. BO PEEP! *CRIES FOREVER*
WHY IS NOT A REAL PROGRAM THING?! WHY STOP IT?!
I love all of them together to scale! I really hope this wasn’t completely dropped and is still a future possibility!
PSA:My Mother never told me this! Reblog to save a baby Bird:)
JUST A LITTLE HISTORY FACT MY GRANDFATHER TOLD ME:
The reason this myth was a thing, was because back in the 30’s-50’s or so ( I can’t remember the time)
There was a parasite that was living in birds. It was hard to explain it to children, so they basically made up this myth so children wouldn’t touch the birds incase it carried the parasite.
THE MORE YOU KNOW YEA?
It’s been so long since I’ve posted! Sorry my dear followers!
I’ll do big life post at some point but for now have a big post about costume stuff!
First up is my new project for this year; the Wizard Le Noir from Granado Espada.
I’ve been really lacking inspiration since Loki, there’s been nothing that’s caught my eye or would really challenge my skills, and I felt like I’d hit a wall. I wanted something fabric based that would challenge me and had a nice amount of detailing I could take my time on.
Last night I decided to start hunting and came across an old planned costume from Granado Espada. Originally I wanted to do the Warlock Le Noir costume, however looking back I’m really not keen on the colours nor design honestly bar the beading. Instead, I started looking at the Wizards instead and found they had a Le Noir version! Its not usually something I’d go for as I hate my upper arms, but as a long term project I thought what the hell!
Before I start that however, I’ve got lots of larp kit to make! Yes I could buy it all but wheres the fun in that, especially when it means I could work with more leather! Going to be getting more leather next month for a coat, waistcoat and jacket. I’ll also be making our cloaks from a wool similar to what i used for Thor’s cape but a little lighter in weight.
Finally, though it’s the most recent thing, is that I’m going to be starting my first professional job for a TV show! I’ll be making set dressings for a pilot episode for a pretty big company that are filming in about 3 weeks. I’m so excited about it! Its my dream to do costume work for tv and film and this feels like a step in the right direction finally! I start work next week so expect flailing and excited updates!
I distinctly remember sitting here listening to Carter prattle on about…
I literally made my husband watch Stargate just to get to this episode, which we did on the weekend finally! It’s by far my favourite.
Also Teal’c is a fucking trooper for starting every day for months like that and not killing everyone on the base.
Also it makes me want to make a Stargate cosplay…X3
