It’s A New Start

If you’ve noticed, yes I’ve deleted all the past posts from my blog.

I just think it’s time for a fresh start, and deleting all those posts was the best way for me to start.

With all of that said, how about we get to know each other a little better…though I’m sure most of you already know me very well.

Now to the real part of this blog post…

Cookies

Cookies is getting big. I’m not too sure how old he is though. I know, I’m a bad cat mommy. And I know this picture is fuzzy and such, but he’s a kitten…need I say more?

Con is only a few weeks away! Which is making me in the ‘holy shit’ mood. When it comes to outfits for con I only have one totally finished, but it’s been finished for months. I just want to have options.

Red Lolita Skirt

This is one skirt I have totally finished. It’s the skirt for a Lolita style maid outfit. I know the maid outfits are usually black and white…well red is my favorite color. Plus it’s good to be different!

apron

Here’s the skirt with the apron. Both still need a good ironing. The apron was SO easy to do, and well I enjoyed making it. Once I had it cut out it only took around 45 minutes to finish it. I will be making another Lolita style outfit that needs an apron.

I still don’t have a top finished for the maid outfit. I have the base of the top cut out but that’s pretty much all I have done to it. I know I need to really get to work on the top since time is running out.

The other outfit I’m working on falls under Sweet Lolita. The skirt is white and yellow, three layers of fabric with bows all over the front of the skirt. I don’t even have a top cut out for this one.

For both outfits I’m doing a petticoat to wear under the skirts. I have it cut out and ready to sew together.

painting

This is the other thing I’ve been working on. It’s not related to cosplay at all. These pictures are of it unfinished, I have yet to get some great pictures of it now that it’s finished.  The title of it is, Bluebird.

There’s the song I got the inspiration for the painting from. I love the song, and the band is pretty kick ass.

I’ve been working on another small painting for a friend. Last night I pretty much got all the major parts of it painting and now I just have the small details to touch up and finish.

As far as my activities of the weekend…

Friday night I was at the coffee shop, as usual. We ended up going to hookah, which I don’t do. I just go to hang out really. Well I was able to talk a friend into showing up at the hookah longue since he lives close to it. I have to say I enjoyed him being there. He’s such a sweet guy, and I enjoy being around him. One of the friends who was there made the remark that it was the first time he had ever heard me talk as much as I had been. ^_^

Saturday started with me at the coffee shop and ended with spending the night with that friend from the night before…a friend I have a huge crush on.

This week is going to be pretty much sewing a few crayon aprons and maybe a few other things. Plus having to finish things for con. Not looking forward to the week really because of all the things I know I have to finish. I have gotten in the habit of holding off on sewing until later – 6pm or later – because then I don’t have people getting in my way. It just works out better for everyone.
