Fabric Spray Paint Test-Part 2

Hi everyone! A while ago, I wrote a post about testing how Tulip Color Works fabric paint works. This week, I wanted to talk more about how the paint worked when using a stencil.

After my previous test and discovering the paint’s colors didn’t blend together like I planned, I wanted to see if I could use the paints with a stencil. I had an idea to use the paints with a stencil on a future project, but I would need to make the stencil myself. Since I couldn’t buy a stencil, I wanted to know what I could use to make the stencil that wouldn’t allow the paint to bleed under the stencil.

Clara’s Cold War Dress- Second Version Part 1

A few years ago, I made my own version of Clara Oswald’s dress in the Doctor Who episode, Cold War. While I made it, I hated how it was turning out and, after completing it, I hated the way it looked even more. I always wanted to remake it, but it wasn’t until 2016 I was able to do it. Because I made and finished the dress in 2016, I don’t remember a lot about the dress itself or how I constructed it, but I wanted to talk about it before it becomes a costume that gets lost in my closet and is forgotten before I can talk about it on my blog.

While doing research into the dress, I found Mariah’s Cosplay Site has a page dedicated to the costume and even has an idea what kind of dress was used in the episode, the Vivienne Westwood Metallic Pannier Dress. After reading it, I decided to make my dress have a similar neckline to the Vivienne Westwood dress, but modify it to accommodate my recent and future weight loss. 🙂 Continue reading “Clara’s Cold War Dress- Second Version Part 1”

2018 Super Blue Blood Moon Photos

On January 31, 2018 there was a super blue blood moon. The reason why it is called a super blue blood moon is because it is a super moon, the second full moon in January (Thus making it once in a blue moon), and there was a lunar eclipse, which caused the moon to have a red hue (That’s why it’s called a blood moon). You can read more about it here.

I was very excited to see it, so I got up very early, got my camera and tripod out, and waited and took photos of it. Although I have very nice photos of the beginning stages of the lunar eclipse, I was unable to photograph the moon when the lunar eclipse was in totality. Based off other attempts to photograph something very dark with my camera, I suspected that my camera would not photograph the moon during totality, but I still hoped it would turn out anyway. It didn’t, and I’m still disappointed about it, but I’m still happy with the photos I took of the moon as the eclipse started to happen.

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!

Elizabethan Whovian Hat

It’s been a year since I started working on my Elizabethan Whovian costume. During that time I’ve worked on it on and off, but progress on it has been slow partly because I ran into more problems with the bodice of the dress, and partly because my day job has kept me very busy. Despite this, I was able to work on and off on the hat for the costume. I recently finished most of the hat, so here is how I made it!

January 2018 Pattern Haul

Hi everyone! A few years back, I used to talk about my favorite new home sewing pattern released from the year. I stopped doing this because I became I became so busy I couldn’t keep track of all the patterns I bought that year. This year, I decided to revive these posts, but only as a one month pattern haul. The pattern hauls will include all the new patterns I bought during that month that I want to talk about and, sometimes, what I plan on using the pattern for.

And now, onto the haul!

January 13, 2018 Desert Photography- Black and White Version

Hi everyone! In my last post, I talked about photos I took while on a hike. While editing the photos for the post, I also converted some of the photos from color to black and white.

Here’s what they look like…

I like how many of the photos turned out, but I’m not happy with some of the other photos. I didn’t have much trouble editing the photos, but some of the photos are not as impressive to look at as others. I did not include in this post the photos I really did not like, but it did annoy me that I didn’t like the photos so much I didn’t want to post them.

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!

January 13, 2018 Desert Photography

On January 13, 2018, I went out into the desert for a hike. I didn’t originally intend on going on a hike that day, but I was given the opportunity to go for one in an area that I normally do not hike in, so I decided to accept the invitation. While I was there, I took photos of the desert…

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!

2017 End of Year Summary- Sewing

Hi everyone! The past two days I talked about all the art I created and photographs I took in 2017. Today’s post is about the third and final summary I wanted to talk about, sewing!

When I started 2017, I had plans to remake many of my old costumes that are too large for me to wear after my weight loss along with new clothes. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. Continue reading “2017 End of Year Summary- Sewing”
