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.

A-kon 27 recap

June 7th, 2016

I was at A-kon last weekend! It’s an Anime convention in Dallas, which is 3 hours away by car from Austin. I went with three of my coworkers, and it’s been a tiring and fun weekend.

This time around, I picked my Tashigi (One Piece) and Rhyme (TWEWY) cosplays to wear. Tashigi is my newest one, which I finished only a month ago. Though I was originally going to make another One Piece cosplay for A-kon, I ended up getting burnt out. I just couldn’t focus on another costume, so I brought my Rhyme cosplay instead.

In hindsight, I’m glad I didn’t do another One Piece cosplay because I got to spend more time as Tashigi. Here’s a recap of how my weekend was!
