Hey, Mr. Blog~
I've been a busy mofo! But my good friend Kat is going to keep me on the blogging ball and give me a challenge each Friday to fulfill so that I'm no longer neglecting you. (Joke's on her, It's technically Sunday so I'm already late the first week!)
My challenge this week was to dress up in the new dress I made and show off my crafty prowess. But I didn't have time for that, Mr. Blog! So here is a nice snap shot of the new addition to my gaudy and so bright closet.
Impressed? I am as well! This is probably the best thing I have ever sewn in my entire life. The amount of detail and effort I put into it was almost migraine inducing. But it was so worth it, I love this dress~ Now to actually make it into a workable outfit.
I have a small confession, Mr. Blog. I don't think the full on commitment to Lolita fashion is going to happen in my life. I like too many gaudy and ugly articles of clothing that most in the community find "ita". I just cannot help it. I'm not talking about cat ears and lace monsters. I mean hot pink leopard print and fake leather brand dresses. I'm probably hopeless, but I'll have fun trying things. Hueh hueh hueh.
So what has been eating up all my time recently, you ask? PREPARING FOR NEBRASKON 2014!!! I have three costumes, four if I have time and feel frisky, to complete in the time span of a month. Both of the little ones want to cosplay My Little Pony characters. Lu demands to be Fluffle Puff, technically a fan created pony that has become popular on YouTube, and Ray wants to be Twilight Sparkle. Actually, my two sons wanting to be girl ponies had brought up quite a bit of controversy in my life this post month! But I'm saving that for another "Friday" so I may rant about that in depth.
Behold, below is my progress on Fluffle Puff! You have no idea how many times I've been stabbed with the felting needles already. Grr.
For myself I have decided to finally go for the gusto and cosplay Onion Knight from Final Fantasy Tactics. I've wanted to do this forever but could never work up the guts to dive into it. Wish me luck! And if I have time left, (who am I kidding, we know that's not going to happen), I'll be making a gijinka cosplay of the Pokemon Banette, one of my favourites.
I leave you with some snap shots from my week for entertainment. Toodles~
