Sew musical

Once again, So You Think You Can Dance has provided me with more music to groove too.

Except the current song is giving me Supernatural feels.

Which is making me design Steampunk Supernatural costumes.


At least I accomplised a tiny amount of booth stuff.

Eight Vintage Lace cuffs currently drying from their fray checking, waiting for embellishments.

Go me?

2500km later....

Well, back from a nice week long vacation through our neighbouring country America, (though I'd take another week, easy). Now it's back to business. We've got less than a month and a lot to do before FanExpo.

Though, on vacation I might have been, idle I was not. Even on the road, I hunt for fabric. Whether I needed it or not. I'd like to think of it as.... useful souvenirs. So much better than a silly trinket I would never look at again, right? Right.

My fabric selection. Mostly fat quarters, but a few yards as well. Very nice, very nice.  Ooh, and these:

Two books I got from Midtown Scholar in Harrisburg, PA. Can't recall the actual copyright dates, but one has an inscription of 1966 and one 1939. Mmmmm historical....!

So now..... I need to use it all. To work I say!

Bobbin winding power.... MAKE-UP!

.... I may or may not have mentally regressed to myself 20 some odd years ago because the recent airing of sailor moon crystal, has awoken the little girl in  my heart that believes everyone is a sailor senshi.

This has been further influenced by the fact I realized I had never finished reading the sailor moon manga, and subsequently corrected that by reading it all, over the last two nights.

As such, I may or may not be sewing in the basement with "ai no senshi" blasting at max volume, occasionally air guitaring with a mouth full of pins.

I am the coolest person you know.

Now if you will excuse me, I have excessive amounts of top stitching to do, in the name of the moon.

List, list, list.

Of things done, to do, shall be, or shall not,

1. Fascinators at 80% Two more to make in complete, but doing that later 'cause I need a change from feathers. Two more need their eyes and bands.

2. Cuffs. Starting cuffs. Goal is to get Black/Red bases stitch, AoT bases stitched, and maybe triforce ones started.

3. Watched Sailor Moon Crystal Ep1. Oh, nostalgia. <3

4. .... Breakfast.
