Princess Luna

Greetings!

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!  ❤

Lolita of the Roses

Hey all!

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/

Ahoy Matey!

 

Today I went to Fort Popham with my friend Jen.  She is gaining skills as a photographer, even with an inexperienced model such as me.  We had a blast though and I can’t wait to do it again.
