Back from MegaCon!

I've been super busy this past week! Commissions and Crafting, along with prepping for MegaCon. It's been a very very busy week!

Mega was a bit disappointing. Usually I find something super amazing that I just have to have but not the case this year. Last year I bought this AMAZING 5' vinyl display piece from Greg Horn. This year I was hoping to get some sketchbooks from J-Scott Campbell but he was so busy and exhausted that he took off early. :(

Anyway! I completed my Rocket Costume! Due to unforeseen circumstances I ended up waiting until the night before to finish it. I have to say, use an applique. I would have been so much better off if I'd of done that first. I tried fabric paint, fabric spray paint, regular spray paint, but nothing works on black cotton. Lesson learned.

Also! I met the most AMAZING Rapunzel cosplayer! Her dress is so detailed! She is exactly what I would expect a cast member at Disney to look like. And did I mention her hair! OMG Perfect! She even was accompanied by Flynn Rider. How suiting since Tangled comes out Tomorrow!! :D :D :D

Oh yeah! And I did finally receive my RavenClaw scarf back in the mail! :)

Weekend Recap!

Rainkissed Leaves
Bath and Body Works discontinued my favorite scent Rainkissed Leaves. I realized this only this past weekend since I ran out of my hand soaps. So I skipped on over to Ebay and bought myself a lot of 9 foaming soaps! HAH! Take that Bath and Body works! I won't be running out anytime soon. :P

My boyfriend and I will be attending MegaCon this coming up Saturday. We need to promote PariahCon and it's Miss Pokemon Contest. What better way to do this than to dress up as Team Rocket Grunt!
My costume will differ from the one above. For one, I live in FL so I'll be wearing short sleeves. Given my last minute-ness on this costume, I'm hoping for the best. I doubt I'll be finding myself some gloves around this time of year. But we'll see :) I'll be passing out fliers and hopefully talking to some interested cosplayers. Kind of an odd situation, going to one con to completely promote another. lol

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you all remembered to wear your green. :)

Weekend Splurging

This past weekend Elise and I went shopping at some crafty specialty shops. Firstly, a shop in Lutz, FL called Scrap and Sew. They carry high quality designer fabrics. I'm not much on designer anything, but I just couldn't resist this print by Moda Fabrics. The color scheme is just what I'm feelin' right now. Check out the rest of their Central Park collection here!

Everytime I walk into Fiber Art Inc in Odessa I want to buy sooo much yarn! Lucky for my bank account, I only walked away with one. I have a particular project in mind for this Dusty Blue skein. ;)

Fat Panda!

I took part in a game design challenge a few weeks ago and my team went with my idea of Fat Panda! A game where you Om Nom on junk food untill you explode. Well a few minutes ago Fat Panda went live on the Android Market! :D I'm so excited! I can now say I have officially contributed to an Android App Game! Wheeee! You need Android 2.2 to play. (Meh, Verizon not giving me an update for my phone! I can't even play my own game! >.<) Anyway, the game download is just a buck, so be sure to check it out! And remember!

Echo Flower Shawl on Ravelry

Lace Knitting is something I've always admired. The pattern motifs are simply beautiful. Being new to knitting I'm a bit hesitant to attempt my first project. It means learning to read diagrams and I have to be even more careful when reading my patterns. I will probably start off with something that has a small amount of lace-work and go forward from there. Who knows! Lace may not be as scary as it looks. Check out these beautiful lace knit projects on Ravelry!

Daylight Savings!

Since daylight savings happened yesterday, check out this amazing clock from decoylab on Etsy! I purchased one last week and it is absolutely stunning.

I've had such a busy busy week! Firstly, my job changed hours. So I get to come in earlier and leave later. It pretty much destroyed my morning me-time for photo taking, hence why I haven't posted much these past 2 weeks. I really have to reconfigure my schedule. On top of that, Day Light Savings time completely threw me off track, as for most of us I'm sure.

I spent the day at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure yesterday. I must say it was much more hot than I expected it to be especially since Florida has been so nice and breezy this past week.

I finally purchased myself the Ravenclaw house scarf! I've been after this baby for a while, but everytime I got Filche's Shop it is out of stock! Well, once I come home I then realize it still has it's anti-theft mechanism on it. It would be alright if not for the fact it can explode ink. So now FedEx is scheduled to pick it up, return it to be untagged, then re-delivered to me. Sigh. The ETA on re-delivery has yet to be determined. :(

Baby Blankets!


My cousin is having a baby girl and I decided to use up some of my yarn stash and make her a blanket. I've never made a blanket before so I've been on Ravelry browsing and narrowing down my choices. So far the top 3 are my favorites. :) I have a feeling this is going to take a while.

Weekend Madness!

My boyfriend and I went to see Rango! Nickelodeon has definitely stepped up their game since that awful movie Barnyard that came out a while back. This movie's animation was impeccable! But thats not surprising since it was done by ILM, the holy mother of all animation studios. If your a fan of westerns you'll enjoy Rango. We were amazed at how adult this film was. It had a lot of dark undertones in it. I would not recommend bringing a small child to see this movie.

I also went a very purple wedding and later met up with some of the PariahCon directors for a small get together. Overall, a very eventful weekend.

Talk about Project Re-Style! Etsy Seller katwise turns boring old sweaters into an amazing explosion of colors and patterns! I am insanely jealous of her sewing skills! I would love to attempt one of these myself, but I'd at least need access to a serger. I just may have to commission one of my own :D There's so many styles and colors to choose from! The possibilities are endless!

Blustery Day

Its been a really windy couple of days here in FL. I love windy weather! I have an insane urge to go kite flying! And how can I not when I have this baby just laying around my apartment!

Although I must say, I'm insanely jealous of this girl's super-cute pink goldfish kite! I wonder if they sell these at Epcot! It certainly is much closer than taking a trip to Beijing!

Merry March!

March 1st! I sent out and received a partner today! The Craft My Wists Swap I'm hosing is full and it's also officially craft time for the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Swap!

I have no idea what I'm going to make! One Tiny thing means less than 4" and your only allowed to send one thing. On the other hand, I'm excited to get crafting for my wists swap! I have lots of ideas for that one! ;D In the mean time, I am trying to contain my urge to buy more yarn, I have to use my Universal Studios passes one last time before they expire, and I need to get ready for MegaCon this month! March is gonna be awesome! :D
