I JUST MADE A VICTORIAN DRESS IN ABOUT FOURTEEN HOURS! The dress was decided on five days ago. Half of the fabric order came in yesterday while I was at work. (The other half didn’t come in on time. I had needed four yards to make the underskirt. I was only able to buy two yards of kind similar fabric, but I made it work! Yeah. That’s right. Try to figure that out.) I made the bulk of it working ten hours straight today. It’s not stage accurate and I had to take shortcuts to meet the deadline but I did it!

Special thanks to littleladylizzy for making this challenge possible!

I’d once more like to thank lissierosedesign for being an utter saint and letting me borrow her gorgeous barmaid dress for Connecticon with my Doctor, skinny-suits. Every detail is beautiful and I can’t even believe that I’m wearing such a thing. I’ll be in it for the BBC shoot on Saturday and the Whovians are Cool panel! Thanks, Melissa!

I won’t be in Connecticon, but a good friend of mine will be and she’ll be wearing my original Barmaid Clara dress! (And she looks absolutely fabulous!)

I threw together a quick Agent Peggy Carter cosplay for Wizard World Philadelphia so I could join in on a Women of Marvel group with my friends. (Yes, this is a Amazon and eBay assembled cosplay) Once we realized that the crashed plane greenhouse was nearby, a photoshoot needed to happen.

I’m at the point where my thoughts are pretty much “I should do laundry, I probably should clean…or I can start making a database of EVERY SINGLE GAME OF THRONES COSTUME FROM SEASONS 1-3 TO BE USED AS A REFERENCE FOR COSPLAYERS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!”

I wanted to share my two favorite moments from Wizard World Philadelphia this past weekend. 

First, a little girl was eyeing Rhaegal on my shoulder, so I knelt down so she could get a better look. I told her she could pet him and I moved his head right as she did. She giggled with delight and said, “I think he’s real!” I smiled and said, “I think he likes you!”

Second, as Peggy Carter, I had Tony Stark, Loki, and Sho Nuff drop and give me twenty. It made me feel very powerful XD

Nothing like realizing you announced a cosplay but never posted pictures of it.

Here’s how my Dany cosplay was at AnimeNEXT (including a picture of when I crashed the Disney tea party. Photo credit: dayofthedoctor ). There’s still more detail work I’d like to do, but it was wearable and I still received compliments on my craftsmanship.

Anyway, I’ll be wearing the dress again this weekend at Wizard World Philadelphia and at Otakon.

Wizard World Philadelphia is this weekened! I finally get to use the pass I won from the Doctor Who Fan Film Festival last year (I won the Companion category in the costume contest. Thank you, Barmaid Clara!) If you see me, be sure to say hi, because I’ll be delighted to see you :D

Thursday:…

I’m going on Friday as Captain America, so I’ll be sure to say hi to my best girl 😉😘

I believe you owe me a dance.

Thursday: Barmaid Clara Oswin Oswald from Doctor Who
Friday: Agent Peggy Carter (Mavel Ladies group!) and Captain Jackie Harkness (yep, it’s a 40s day)
Saturday: Purple dress. I’m going to a wedding so I won’t be at the con. I hope my cousin doesn’t get killed by the bride’s grandmother…
Sunday: Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen

Despite living close to the city, I have a hotel room so my lineup might change, but that’s what I have so far.

...You love playing with my heartstrings, don't you? (And yet for some reason I like it.)

It wasn’t on purpose, sweetie XD

Are you, by any chance, single? It's impossible to *not* have a crush on you because you're so creative and talented and geeky and gorgeous. <3

You’re very sweet :D I’m actually happily taken. It’s a very recent event, to be honest, but I kinda accidentally documented on Facebook across the last month before I even thought we’d ever speak to each other. I’ll transfer the status over at some point when I have time.

Scratch that, anon. I’m single. I’m a strong, independent Khaleesi who don’t need no Khal XD
