Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

In the Name of the Moon

I got this up way later than I had intended to due to technical difficulties, and human error.  I’m house sitting this week, away from home.  I realized I didn’t pack my camera, so I had to use the webcam on my netbook which is a little shall we say, temperamental.  Plus photo quality is lousy, so I apologize for the blurriness of the picture.
photos 780Anyway, here’s the surprise.  The doll costume I made is Sailor Moon.  I had been think of making a Sailor Moon costume for some time now.  I am a bit of a fan, plus the design of the outfit is pretty easy to make and still really cute.  I just can’t wait to show this to my niece, she will flip.  She actually wants me to make her a Sailor Moon costume too, maybe another day.  For the costume, I used scraps of material from some dresses I cut up for some costumes for myself, including the one I made for Halloween(see Two New Outfits, One Special Day).  I added premade bows from the enormous stash of them I have that I’m still trying to find uses for,  someday they all will be gone.  The tiara and hair jewels are made from ornament hook wire and a couple of buttons decorated with sparkly paint.  Looks pretty good, except that I get the feeling that I’m missing something.  By the way, she’s wearing a pair of plastic doll boots that didn’t quite make it into the photo, Sailor Moon has got to have her footwear right?
Here’s the updated list:
  • Tube top
  • Doll costume
  • Card holder
  • Green dress
  • Top recon
  • Polo dress
Two down, four to go.  By the way, my final exam went fairly okay today.  And tomorrow is the first day of my externship, wish me luck. :)
