someday I'll get the hang of this

First thing you should know: this blog follows no rhyme nor reason. Some of the madness includes things from books I read and tv shows or movies I watch. Those currently include books by Tamora Pierce, George RR Martin, and many of the BBC's television shows. Sometimes I interrupt the fan-posts with real life things that are important.

Exciting Things:
-I learned choreography for my fight at the renaissance festival, swords and everything!
-My teaching license is coming to me in the mail!
-This corset is proving way easier to make than I remember the last one being!

So. I fucking hate people.

  • Teacher: What do we need to start a fire?
  • Four-year-old: A bomb!
I got foots!
A two-year-old, after showing me her pink shoes.
  • Me: What's inside your train?
  • Two-year-old: Choo choos!


Persephone as a dark and off-putting goddess who worries her mother by hanging out with satyrs and making weird stuff like pitcher plants and Venus flytraps. Hades being charmed and intimidated all at once.

This is the first night this week that I’m not working on a costume piece and it feels so weird.

Unrelated to my current costume drama, I just designed this card with my mom on it! Look how pretty she was. ^-^

UUUUGGGHHH. I just cut part of the sleeve of this smock because I wasn’t paying attention when I laid the fabric down to cut the neckline.

I’m honestly probably going to replace the whole piece because I can’t think of any reason my character would settle for that and I can’t figure out how to fix it without making it obvious. I was just SO CLOSE to finishing it.

There are captions too, in case you wanted lines. Ugh, I love both of these ladies so much.

And bonus Iago:

Hiccup does not have nightmares about his father. Instead he sometimes dreams that his dad is still alive, and it’s business in the village as usual. He dreams about his father giving him the Chief talk, about his father telling him to pay attention, about his father happily clapping him on the back and about his father chewing him out for something silly and inconsequential.

All in all, most dreams Hiccup has about Stoick are so awfully normal that for the span of a night, he forgets Stoick is dead until the sun streams in and he wakes up wondering why the house isn’t quaking with his father’s footsteps.

Nightmares, Hiccup can deal with. It’s the dreams that trick him into thinking his father will walk through the door at any moment, that hurt.

Tell us about getting the call to go audition for a show that you have watched and love. You’re a fan of GoT and now you got a chance to be on it. It was very surreal because, when the audition came around, I was up to date, watching the third season as it was airing and I had to put myself on tape, and I did it with my iPhone. (x)
