MCFC 2014

Just a reminder, I will be at MCFC weekend after next!

I will not have any new costumes, and I don’t know my schedule yet (so I haven’t been able to plan out what costumes I can wear) – but I should be there all 3 days!

Upcoming Convention Appearances

I’ll be at Geek Media Expo in Nashville, TN weekend after next!

I’m planning on bringing Rogue as Ms Marvel, Peggy Carter, my Time Lord, Sarah Sanderson, and Glimmer! I have no idea when I’ll be wearing what, but I’m excited for it! We’ve been to every GMX so far and it’s always fun.

Then, I’ll be a guest at Memphis Comic and Fantasy convention in Memphis, TN in November!

And finally, I’ll also be a returning guest at MidSouthCon in Memphis in March 2015!

I haven’t planned out what I’m wearing to MidsouthCon or MCFC yet – I’ll be commuting to the con each day so it’ll depend on my schedule/when I can get back home to change!

(Note: for all 3 cons, I will not be there Friday day. Newish job = not much vacation time to spread around. But I’ll be there as soon as I can in the evenings!)

Halloween and Costume Commissions

Hi everyone,
For those of you coming across my site in search of Halloween costumes to purchase or for help on Halloween costumes, this post is just a gentle reminder that I do not sell my costumes, and I am not open to take commissions for custom costumes at this time (and, due to my relatively new job, I am not sure if I will have time to do commissions again in the future).

I do have one item for sale in my etsy store currently – my Marion Ravenwood pattern pack. It is an instant download you can use to print on heat transfer paper for a quick and easy Marion Ravenwood or Anna Valerious costume.

While I do have a handful of older costumes I’m considering selling soon, including some of my husband’s, I doubt that they will be ready to go before Halloween. (You can always ask me if I’d be willing to sell something – if it’s something I’ve been thinking of parting with we could make something work. But don’t be disappointed if the answer is no. A lot of my costumes are extremely sentimental to me and may never be sold.)

If you’d like help or have questions with your own costume build, I am happy to help! You can leave me a comment on my site, or message me from here or on my facebook page!

You can also check out my tutorials page for posts I’ve made with how I make various costume pieces, and of course I have basic breakdowns and pattern suggestions for everything in my portfolio.

And one more reminder – I do not ever rent my costumes!

Good luck with your costumes and have a safe and happy Halloween!

Dragoncon Updates

Site’s updated with my new Dragoncon costumes and photos!

New costumes added: Johanna, Anne Boleyn, Peggy Carter, Donna Noble and Rogue as Ms Marvel!

Anne Boleyn

Updates to: Megara, Dr Forrester, Marie Antoinette Donna Noble and Shadowcat!

All of our Dragoncon 2014 photos are on my flickr gallery here!

Also updated, the events page with photo links, upcoming con schedule and some general maintenance.

I’m still working on fixing the broken flickr images – it’s a long process!

Final Dragoncon Line-up


Last schedule thoughts:
Friday I will definitely be at the Vintage Vogue Fashion Show, so I’ll be over at the Hilton from 12:30-2:30. If I can manage I’ll try to wear Anne a little longer than that, otherwise I’ll probably be in her again Sunday.
Saturday I’ll be at the USO Girls/WWII shoot at 12:30 as Peggy, and later that night (8-ish) I’ll be in Shadowcat with an 80s X-Men group!
Sunday I’ll be at the Marvel photoshoot as Peggy!

Those are my definite things. I have a few private photoshoots planned for my costumes as well, but actually still (still!) working those out so not sure of days/times yet.

Follow my instagram or twitter for pics and posts! I more than likely won’t be posting here on facebook while we’re gone.

Vintage Vogue Fashion Show

Hey guys! While I still don’t have a decent idea of a costume schedule at Dragoncon, I can tell you one place I’ll be for sure – I’ll be wearing my new Anne Boleyn costume at the Vintage Vogue Fashion Show Friday at 1!

If you like costumes it should be an awesomely fun show to come see!

Broken Photos

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.

Dragoncon 2014 Schedule

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….
