1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Tron Legacy - Quorra on: April 29, 2012 07:57:18 PM
Last year's Pax Prime here in Seattle, I made the Quorra's outfit. It was my first time using electrical in my costumes, and it was amazing! I had so much fun walking around and posing and taking pictures with people. Since the costume was so easy to recognized, it was encouraging to hear people calling out Quorra. Smiley

I used EL tape with a full on battery/driver pack. I wish I had better pictures of myself in the dark. Sorry for the blurry quality!


Here are some behind the scene goodness, LOL First mock up fit and the electrical diagram.

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / 4 hour body diet /slow carb diet recipes? on: February 26, 2012 08:49:53 PM
Hello everyone, my husband and I are trying out the 4Hour body diet. And so far we are doing well and lost a few pounds.

So I am looking for some low carb chicken recipes. We get Organic Chicken from Costco, so they taste pretty good by themselves with little seasoning. But after a few weeks, I am in dire need of new yummy recipes! Wink

any advice?
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Venice is sinking! - my dress! on: February 25, 2012 06:39:23 PM
Hiya everyone, its been a while since I posted stuff I have made.

Last month I went to a charity Ball, and the theme was Venetian Carnival.  I referenced heavily on the Pattern M6097, but altered extensively to fit my body shape and height.  It was alot of fun, and I can't wait til next year.

I also made the head piece, necklace, earrings, fashioned rings from glass buttons. Wink it was very fun to show off my work in such an elaborate fashion. I think this is the most excessively decorated garment I have ever worked on. And I didn't even add a lot of beads to it. Wink may be I should!
