I get a lot of ‘how’d you do that’ questions and thought I’d start sharing my build process and progress on a regular basis. Everything I know, I learned from online resources and asking other people endless questions. It’s time that I gave back! Beginning this Sunday, November 13, you can join me on Twitch […]

Matty’s Rocket creator Tim Fielder was kind enough to send me a referral client! This time out: a speed-build for a fraternal organization’s national meeting. The costume would be used as part of a multimedia performance before 20,000 attendees! A little daunting, but I was excited to take on a project for non-cosplayers and to craft […]

Since MegaCon decided to breakup with me by forcing me to choose it or Momo (and I’m loyal to the home team), I chose HeroesCon as one of my ‘travel cons’ this year. I started traveling to out of state cons, several years ago and enjoy the opportunity to meetup with people I only know […]
Did you miss my live interview on the Black Science Fiction Society’s Genesis Science Fiction Radio podcast? Never fear, we’ve got the replay! Huge thanks to Jarvis Sheffield, William Hayashi and everyone at BlackScienceFictionSociety.com for the invite and beautiful experience!
One of the things I struggle with is getting good pro-pictures of my work. Part of it is me being me; the other, is me not being accustomed to seeking out photographers. I tend to just show up and if I encounter fans or photogs, great. If not, I took some pics with my mobile […]
The simple answer: because I can. I’ve always found great joy in the process of creation. It didn’t matter if it was writing a term paper, sewing a blouse or building with Legos and Lincoln Logs. As an adult, I’ve worked as both a writer and a designer. To see my ideas made real is always a […]
I met S. at a low-key, free mall con last February. I was helping my mom work her jewelry booth in between presenting, when my soon-to-be-partner-in-mayhem, stopped in to ask about some earrings. She was rocking a very lovely corset, which although steam isn’t my thing, I could appreciate. We chatted for a bit about […]
My friend S. called me back in December with a fabulous idea: we should go to Mardi Gras and roll with the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus (IKoC). It really didn’t require a lot of thought or persuasion. It’s NOLA and costumes. What more do you need?! I usually hit the early Uptown parades, but had never managed […]
