I apologize for all the broken photos throughout my blog currently – I’m doing some flickr clean up, so those photos should be fixed soon.
Oftentimes it is only the thumbnail that is broken, so if you click through you should be able to still see the photo.
I can’t believe it’s 2014. This will be my 13th DragonCon. It seems like just yesterday I was getting ready for my first one in 2002.
But, here’s some things I’m thinking of bringing:
It’s already kinda out of date since I made it. Here’s some thoughts and updates.
Anne Boleyn – from “Anne of the Thousand Days.” This is almost finished! Read up on my progress here.
Donna Noble – Doctor Who: Unicorn & the Wasp. I have a rough start on this. Read up on it here.
Peggy Carter – Captain America. Finished except for a few details! See more here.
Elsa – is probably not happening for Dragoncon – will more than likely be pushed back to Halloween.
Johanna – Catching Fire. Started on it much earlier this year but set it aside. Picking it back up soon – progress is here.
Secret Costume is Secret.
“Old”/Returning costumes: Megara (Hercules – with some updates), Marie Antoinette (with some updates), Dr Forrester. Those are the only things I know of for sure. Playing around with other ideas, but haven’t made a decision. Thinking about Donna Noble (Runaway Bride and/or Journey’s End), Trillian, Glimmer, Romana (sans cape), Belle, Wasp, etc.
Schedule? Hahaha. Yeah right.
I have absolutely no solid plans for anything this year so there is no telling where I’ll be or when I’ll be wearing what, honestly. For a planner like me, this is very distressing, but everytime I try….
Hey guys! I finally got around to digging up the patterns I created for my Marion Ravenwood top. I’ve posted them on etsy as a $10 download! You get 4 pdfs of the small neckline detail piece, the front pieces, and 2 sleeve options, for you to print on heat-transfer paper!

Added my portfolio page for my new Meg costume!
I’ll be at Momocon weekend after next!
I’ve never been before so I am excited!
At the moment I’m planning on bringing Donna, Belldandy, Belle, and Meg (which is new! I’ve got progress in my blog…).
Since I’ve never been I don’t know when I’ll wear what, exactly. I will hopefully wear each of those costumes at some point between Friday evening and Sunday morning. So there’s my schedule for you.
A couple of weeks ago, I had planned to do an outdoor location photoshoot with Chasing Photography of my new Belle ballgown. Well, we got rained out. So, to make up for it, we did a white backdrop shoot of four of my Belle costumes!
I’ve updated each of my portfolio pages with some of my favourites
Last set of new photos – Belldandy has been updated!
I am digging through all of my old photos of my costumes and working on uploading larger, better quality versions. I’m starting with flickr and then I’ll move over to replacing the photos here on my site, and then places like facebook.
I don’t know why at some point I decided that 500px tall was plenty enough for my costume photos – and then eventually crept up to 600 – so I’m replacing what I can. Some images I simply no longer have the original file and it’s impossible (excuse me while I go back in time and kick myself), but 95% of them can be fixed. Right now I’m aiming for at least 800 on the long side, and avoiding strange crops. I’m also at some point going to rescan what I can of my non-digital photos (ah the good ol days).
What that means is that you may come across broken links/images across my portfolio and blog, since I use flickr for a lot of my hosting and replacing the image breaks the link. If you see something broken and want to alert me, just comment on the article and I’ll see it and fix it as soon as I can.
