January Husband and I took a “vacation” to the fancy part of town. Stayed in a nice hotel, ate at fancy restaurants, pretended we were the other half for a minute. It was fun, but I think I like my half better.

October Day of the Cupcake
November The Deep
2014 is the year of fixing what’s broken, including me. More books, more music, more sleep, more patience, more understanding, more love. More fun, more creativity, more friends, less tilting at windmills, less guilt, less stress, less anger. More dancing, more sex, more petting kittens.
2013 was bad because I let it be. 2014 won’t get that opportunity.
Most of these started as custom orders, but several will now be regularly available in the shop.
The last couple of weeks, in pictures:
Monkey, post-op. Sadly he no longer has his funny little fangs.
Two Mermaids walk into a bar.
Joe Peery drew this. I want to be a mermaid in real life!
Speaking of mermaids, we had a parade. It rained. We still had fun.
a recycling project for a friend. Coasters from her worn out chef jackets.
Every year on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when the moon is at it’s brightest, The Moon Goddess comes out of her crystal palace to dance and eat Mooncakes on the surface of the Moon. Won’t you join her?
I wish I’d gotten better photos of the costumes I made, but oh well. Maybe more will surface, we certainly got our pictures taken a lot.
I made this Game of Thrones dress for my friend Aimee.
(not sure who took this picture, maybe Aimee’s friend?)
This is the best pic I can find so far of Wayne as Kratos. see watermark for credit
Here’s one I took of us in the room, I really hope someone has a shot of my costume, it was a rather ingenious feat of engineering.
I made another costume, basically Little Red Riding Hood’s revenge, but people kept stepping on my train, so it didn’t last long. I’ll have to do another shoot with it this fall. That and a modified version of the Daenerys dress will go in the shop soon.
Calling all artists and lovers of adventure! We invite you to join the Sirens of The Deep at Elliot Street Pub on Saturday, September 14th for a special Salon.
