The One Shoed Raven of Emerald City Comic Con

There comes a point when the ideal of sailing into a deadline with comfortable room to spare collides with the reality of situation. Last night I realized Emerald City Comic Con was 10 days away. Cue panic attack. Quick rundown on where I stand: Starfire: Done. Raven: Almost there. Beast Boy: Fuhgeddaboudit. Yes, it may seem I am in good standing. Raven’s dress and cape are done. Wig arrived in the mail. Red bindi is sitting on my dresser. Got a fancy body suit contraption to keep everything in place. Tried out my Raven makeup and ended up running to pick up my daughter at school with it on. A second grader told me he “liked my face.” Seal of approval if I have ever heard one. Right now all I need is to finish one of the gloves, finish the boots, and say a prayer over the belt in hopes it doesn’t fall apart. That doesn’t seem like much until I add in that my glove that needs finishing is missing which means if it …

Neko Atsume Tubbs Shirt

Neko Atsume is something I will never understand. Earning money to feed virtual cats and buying them toys so they come to your yard and leave more money. It is a vicious cycle of Nekos and I love every flipping second of it. I want to giggle with glee when one is curled up in a basket sleeping. I chuckle every time one of those fur balls is mooning me. I want to strangle them when they leave me one silver fish for the entertainment I provided for them, but I can’t stay mad because that is just the way of cats. i can’t even hate on Tubbs when he waddles into my yard and eats all the food. Sigh. Neko Atsume has taken over my phone and my daughter. I’m okay with that. I may fuel the fire a bit with latter. I offered to make my daughter a shirt…  It was really simple to make and a great scrap buster. Double score. Using fleece I drew out Tubbs, cut him out, added his …

New Year Cosplay

Resolutions suck. After spending some time writing down some for 2016 my list looked more like a todo list. My sewing list takes up two pages. Let’s just say I’ve got more projects that I want to complete that I’m good for the next several life times. Cosplay is the big thing I’m looking forward to this year. I’ve got a few costumes on my list to knock out. 1. Raven and Starfire. I’m raising a big Teen Titans fan. (A girl after my own heart). Squirt is looking forward to Comic Con in April and we decided on going as a duo. If I have time Buba might get a Breast Boy costume and the husband might get tricked into a Cyborg outfit. That is going to require some trickery on my part… 2. Harajuku Alice. Last year for the Solstice Parade I managed to cobble together a last minute Steampunk Mad Hatter outfit. Keeping with the theme I decided to do a play on Alice. Right now I’m not sure entirely how it …
