I'm 25, married, owner of two kitties and a costumier!
Made mostly for posting progress and completion photos of my costumes. Also expect kitty photos and sneaky shots from work.
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.
I also work on the new ABC show Galavant! It's awesome! Everyone should watch it!
Always happy to answer questions!
This afternoon I went from this stencil, to this final appliqué piece.
It’s for Galavant’s horse’s caparison for a big event he’ll be taking part in!
So happy with the final look of it! I would’ve liked the satin stitch to be a bit neater but it was rather tricky working with a small thing in the middle of a big piece of fabric.
Also just a little thing I forgot that made my day this week;
Chris, the director, came round with the writer and producers to see how the set was doing earlier in the werk. I met them all briefly at the wrap party last time and they’re so lovely, but obviously wasn’t expecting them to remember me.
As they stopped by the art department to chat to our designer, Chris spotted me and waved then shouted out that he liked my new hair colour! I was green for the pilot but changed to blue last weekend. It really made my day that he would remember me after only chatting to him for a little while at the party let alone notice my hair!
Some work based progress today. This is almost 2 days work (though broken down into afternoons).
So far the piles contain:
2 horse blankets for Gal’s horse
2 blankets for Isabella’s horse
1 pair of lined curtains
4 pairs of varying sized curtains.
The curtains are going to be for the throne room which is currently in progress.

WB! Totally looking forward to LARP pics XD What race/class are you playing as?
Woo finally installed an add on so I can reply!
I’m playing a really awesome fantasy system called Empire, it’s about a 1000-1500 person fest larp. I’m a Cambion guy for now and was going to be an archer but I’ve ended up being a huge shield user instead and taking the front line! I seriously don’t know how I’ve not larped before now!
That looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to see it start coming together. I hope we can expect lots of progress photos here. :)
Thanks and of course! I’m going to get materials this week probably so I’ll start posting progress soon!
Absolutely terrible drawing of my Winter Soldier design for my ball gown. I am so not an artist and have basic colouring pencils but wanted to draw it up fully before patterning.
The right sleeve is sheer, the same fabric is going to be overlayed on the cowl neck and gathered waist.
Torso and skirt fabric is going to be lined for weight/shape with silk jersey on top.
The left sleeve is going to be an amazing platinum lycra that is like nothing I’ve seen before. This sleeve is going to be heavy with bead work to make up the star and seam lines of Bucky’s arm.
Going to be matching with a lovely Cap dress my best friend is wearing! Can’t wait to start it!
Fabric links cause this site is amazing for stretch fabric!
I’ve been so rubbish at updating this year!
It’ll take too long to cover everything so breif life update time:
Larp is awesome! I’m having so much fun and everyone in the group we joined are lovely! Its so odd seeing the difference between larp and cosplay. If larp had costume competitions I’d be complete!
Work is work. Still part time in the clinic. It pays the bills but its not my passion. I love the people I work with but since actually working my dream job for a month I’ve realised more and more that I need to push forward for what I want. Got awesome news a few weeks ago that I’ll know more about very soon though.
Cosplay has been lacking inspiration since Loki honestly. There’s barely anything that I can find that will challenge me. I love doing new things and I love competing but I’ve been really struggling to find designs I like anymore.
I’ve decided on a new competition piece though for next year and in the mean time I want to make Figga’s dress from the first Thor movie. There’s a cosplay ball in September too and I may have spent a day designing a Winter Soldier ball gown for it.
Also summer has begun. It’s shit. I hate the heat and being hot! My allergies are horrible and I can barely breathe outside with the pollen levels. The only good thing is the air con we got as a wedding present. Going to sleep in an ice cold room is the best!
Other than that not much really. Will post larp pics and Winter Soldier gown progress in the coming weeks cause payday is Friday!
I’ve posted about these lovely owls before but since then they’ve invaded my house more! These awesome little guys live on my desk at home and guard my pc for me!
I must admit, I’m slightly hooked on these adorable designs by Lithe-Fider Creatures!
She makes ooak amazing plush designs and her customer service is the best I’ve ever experienced! She sends them all beautifully packed, with a hand written note and some lovely little extras! I really do recommend her to anyone looking for something unique and utterly adorable!
She also has a tumblr lithefidercreatures but my phone sucks and won’t link it.
