Another custom piece, this time for a cosplay wedding! Frosslass:
based on this drawing the client sent of a pokemon character.
(not sure who drew this! If you know, please tell me?)
for a wedding, hopefully there will be more pictures!
I made this costume for Day of the Cupcake last year, an annual event which fundraises for various charities. I was hoping event pictures would surface, but the lighting was very low and the only ones I saw were in black and white. Sadie wore the costume again for a performance in Asheville and Lauren O’Leary snapped a great shot!
It’s a corset, pantaloons and bustle overskirt, all made with Marie Antoinette in mind.
In light of some of the sudden changes Etsy has been making, I’ve decided to branch out to other platforms. Right now, I’m getting started on BigCartel as an e-commerce link. There’s not much there at the moment, but I’ll be adding to it in the coming weeks, including some one of a kind pieces that I’d rather not put on Etsy.
Tell me what you think! (also… I got a new logo! More on that in another post. =D

Once again this stuff is so easy when your model basically looks like the character, but here are shots of the finished product:
The wig she chose was extremely heavy so we made the crown oversized to help keep it forward. Also, the shoe detail was a lot of fun:
About 2 weeks ago I decided to start a batch of fire cider. There are recipes all over pinterest, but I just used what I had on hand… Organic Apple Cider vinegar, chopped garlic cloves, ginger gratings, lemon slices, jalapeño and cherry pepper slices, turmeric, and some rosemary. I didn’t have any onion or horseradish, which are often standard ingredients. This stuff is great for boosting the immune system, or for knocking out a cold quickly. Some people take it every day, but I tend to just use it when I’m feeling run down.
It still needs to ‘cook’ a little bit longer, but I wanted to remember how I made it for next time.
Interestingly, when searching for recipes, I discovered that someone trademarked the name? That seems weird anyone would be allowed to do that since it’s a generic term for a centuries old tonic.
More on that, here:
