Halloween Recap

This is my favorite time of year! The weather is cooler, everything comes in pumpkin flavor, and you can wear a costume almost every day without people questioning you! I had several opportunities to play with costume makeup this year, and of course we had some fun carving pumpkins. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Hello 2018!

I welcomed in the new year in style once again, this time with a galaxy themed mask made of makeup. Looking forward to another year of being creative and glittery! Wishing you all a magical year!

Unveiling the (award-winning) 6th Doctor Bunny!

You read that right! Not only did I win Best Doctor within our group, but our team took 2nd place overall at the Bunny Hutch at Dragon Con! here are a few pictures of the finished cosplay, as well as the group. Thanks for cheering me on!

Progress on my 6th Doctor Bunny

It’s been a whirlwind of activity to complete this whimsical cosplay before Dragon Con! This project was a lot of work and used many different skills.

As you know, I am a big fan of upcycling so I picked up shirts to disassemble, rearrange, and stitch into Colin Baker’s colorful jacket. I used a corset from another cosplay. I dyed some shorts from Target and used a fabric pen to add the stripes. I sculpted and painted the iconic cat brooch myself. I used leftover scraps from the shirt to make the matching ears. My friend Kelly styled a wig for me, which is going to look way more amazing than the one I had.  I am so excited to unveil this at Dragon Con! Stay tuned! 

Dragon Costume Makeup

As I was volunteering at a Game of Thrones event over the weekend, I wanted to do something in theme but didn’t have time to make a costume. So I pulled out the costume make up stash and invented this dragon inspired costume makeup. Photos don’t do it justice… it’s infinitely more sparkly than it appears.

Coming Soon: The 6th Doctor Bunny

I joined a cosplay group for the Bunny Hutch at Dragon Con. We are attempting to reimagine all the doctors and various other villains, companions, and even props as bunnies. So this is my original illustrated idea! Wish me luck! Colin Baker has a wild coat!

Which then inspired some of the other members to ask me to sketch them some ideas to turn into cosplays. Here are a few of my illustrated fashion design ideas:

Momocon 2017

I had a blast at Momocon this year! It was my 4 year old’s first convention, and we cosplayed together. I was a Ghostbuster, and she was Janine. I think we will make Momocon a tradition. Here are a few pics – you can see more on my facebook page!

Last Minute Superhero!

I was able to pull together a quick costume with fun props and makeup in the few hours before the Markster Con Superhero Pub Crawl where I was a registration volunteer. I enjoyed wearing this so much I might even bring it to Momocon!

Treklanta

I cannot believe that I forgot to share this with you guys! Last month I was a guest artist at Treklanta. I was stationed in the main ballroom and did live painting of the panels and the events. Special thanks to Mel’S. Creations for having me. See more pictures in my facebook abum here.

FanFest 2017

I had a blast at FanFest last weekend with my makerspace ColumbusMakesIT! While they held down the fort in the teen area with cool robots and legobot battles, I hosted a few panels on cosplay and participated in the celebrity costume challenge. Thank you for having us, Columbus Public Library!
