What I’m Up To, #10

November 28th, 2016

I just had a 5-day weekend, which felt nice! We get two days off for Thanksgiving, but with the office so empty on Wednesday, I just took that day off too. Of course, I told myself that I should be productive during those 5 days, and well, it never quite ends up that way, does it?

But! Between playing too many hours of Diablo III and watching Yuri on Ice and Westworld, I managed to spend some time on my hobbies the past couple weeks. (Both shows are sooo good, by the way.) So here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

What I’m Sewing

Before you think, “uh Cat, didn’t you already show us this?”… this is not the same Pokemon Go jacket I posted about on Halloween! I decided to make another one, except I altered the fit, made the stripe on the sleeve thinner, and changed the lining fabric.

Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2016

As the title says, Happy Halloween! I’ll admit that I wasn’t always excited for Halloween, but that changed after I started cosplaying. It gave me another event to make a costume for, and I can take advantage of the Halloween sales at fabric and craft stores. Plus, when people ask me what I’m making, I can say it’s for a costume without feeling weird about it. Wins all around!

And that’s the reason why I took a short break from blogging and blog hopping. I was working on my costume! I saw that my work’s party and my friend’s party were the Friday and Saturday before Halloween, and I realized I miscalculated and had one less weekend than I originally thought. I went into cram mode to finish it up.

If you’ve been following me on social media, you already know what I went as. I’m my trainer in Pokemon Go!

What I’m Up To, #9

June 21st, 2016

Well, one Anime convention down… more to go! I’m currently catching up on A-kon aftermath and also preparing for more conventions. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately in each of my hobbies.

What I’m Sewing

I was originally going to debut two new costumes at A-kon, but I ended up getting burnt out and not finishing the second one, which is Robin (One Piece) in her Dressrosa outfit. When I wasn’t procrastinating, I was rushing my work, and as a result, I’m not happy with my progress.

I’m going to start over! I just ordered more fabric (since I used up the one I bought before), and I’m drafting a new dress pattern.
