I got new shoes for steampunking yesterday!!! They’re brown ankle boots and the sides have this really cool lace on them. They were originally marked at $70. I got them for $13. It was awesome.
I’m seeing Matilda on Broadway tonight. Crossing my fingers that I won’t gouge my own eyes out because of how much I loathe children singing. I’ve just heard too many good things about this show to not see it.
Thinking maybe I’ll combine my two new exciting things and wear my new boots to the theater!!!
Pictures of my mom and I on our way to Dorian’s Parlor, my friend Tom being strange, and I MET CAPTAIN MAL!!! He was really cool and actually had his ship in his backpack, which was awesome.
I had such a blast last night! There was much dancing and good conversations.
My mom and I went to Dorian’s Parlor last night. This picture came out awful, so I did fun things with it!
Steampunk Rapunzel and Flynn
GAH!!! I DID STEAMPUNK BELLE ON FRIDAY!!! I WISH I HAD SEEN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE ARE AMAZING!!
My Steampunk Belle costume. I’d like to add more steampunk to it aside from the goggles and the book, but the costume itself is complete.
Now I have to go watch Doctor Who and probably cry my eyes out.
But seriously. I’ll post pictures later.
World’s Faire is in THREE DAYS and I still have to
- buy my dinosaurs
- buy a Hawaiian shirt
- make a skirt
- make a bustle to go over said skirt
- figure out how to make a gun holster for my mom
- figure out how to make a utility belt that will visibly carry books
Is slutty Wash an acceptable thing? I thought I’d have time to buy burnt orange leggings or make a jumpsuit to go under the Hawiian shirt, but lol finals, and now I’m kind of screwed. So Hawiian shirt, dinosaurs, shorts, and combat boots? Maybe?
I finished my apron last night! It’s intended to be for an Alice in Wonderland steampunky costume, but I don’t have the dress or the bloomers completed yet, so I put it on with my corset, and still absolutely love it.
The fabric, if you can’t tell, is creme with white writing. The writing is all relevant to the Alice story, so I thought it would be perfect. My bloomers are blue with color illustrations from Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece.
It has working pockets. Pockets on a costume are good. :-D
I know I won’t see Eli August. Which is really sad. But I’ll see him at SPWF.
I am very excited to see ENSMB and Frenchy and the Punk!
