Hello all! I was recently asked to participate on Building the Magic! It’s a blog that encourages and helps to create magic, especially in the lives and experiences of people who LARP, do theater, go to renaissance fairs, or just want more magic in their lives. The creator believes that details matter in this sort of thing. So when she asked me to share some of my knowledge and also to bring magic to more of the world, how could I resist?
I decided to make another magical quill. She recently made a tutorial for a “leather” bound journal and I thought this would be a perfect companion. You can read the tutorial for the quill here.
Here is a picture of the finished product:
And yes! It really works!
Stay tuned for more artsy posts and maybe even links to more tutorials. ❤
Around three years ago, when I made the Rose Lolita outfit, I was also still into Cosplay. And ponies… I got hooked on the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and when I was introduced to the character, Princess Luna, I KNEW I needed to make a cosplay of her.
I started with some images that I pasted together using Photoshop, all the while thinking of her personality and the things she might have experienced. It ended up looking something like this:
Once I had my design down, I found a pattern and fabric to work with. I lucked out because the Joanns near me had just donated some of their fabric to Goodwill and it was CHEAP. Once I had everything together, I started sewing. And sewing… and sewing. Till I got this!
Once again, it was the lovely Amie who supplied the expertise with her camera to get these shots. You can visit her website here: http://www.photographybyamiee.com/
Overall, I’m really happy with how it came out. Even if I’m still finding glitter in random places! ❤
About thee years ago I was into the Lolita scene. I was so inspired by the fabulously frilly dresses that I had to make my own. It has about 30 yards worth of ruffled lace on it, handmade ribbon roses that I bought on Etsy, and a lot of pink. There is a huge bow in the back and I made the beaded flower crown and necklace myself too. Sadly, I only have this one picture of me wearing it. It was taken by the lovely Amie, a professional photographer I can’t say enough good things about. Her website is here: http://www.photographybyamiee.com/
Hello again! A few months ago a friend told me she was getting married and I was instantly inspired to design a dress for her. It wasn’t something she had asked for or had to choose, but I thought it would be fun anyway.
It was made with scrap book paper and magazine pages. I also added a few details with some gold gel pen.
Can’t you just see it as a fun fairy tale wedding dress? Complete with a castle? ❤
