RT Podcast #266! Grainy webcam photo! The most furry thing I’ve yet made!
"When adventure summons, I know you will rise to the task and take your rightful place among the DAUGHTERS OF ECLECTICA.”
Dress of Eclectica more like Dress of Twirly Cupcake Electric Boogaloo.
A smattering from the Saturday MSPA meet at Wondercon.
In the snatches of clarity (usually while sewing a hem), I rail at my past self and ask why she thought this would be a good idea.
As of picture time,
Yards of fabric hemmed: 46
Yards of ruffles made: 23
Tiers of ruffles: 2
Finished the shirt on Monday night, posting a picture now! Because I didn’t make the mockup right, there are some weird fit areas …even after ripping open the lining and shell to take the sides in (and they had been finished so nicely before! :’( )
Worn with a grey skirt I’d made for everyday wear, but it’s not going to be the Witch skirt so it got cropped out.
Closer picture of the symbol because I am still enamoured with it.
Witch of Space progress pictures, taken at two separate times of day!
The top is fully lined and I did a (kind of) neat job in finishing the sleeves. It’s not that impressive or significant a detail, but it’s cool enough for me!
I was making up the method for the symbol as I went along, so it was fraying something awful under the satin stitching. Solution? BEDAZZLE. Going to sew in more bead anchoring threads and clip the frays tomorrow.
Four hundred percent decked-out Jack Sparrow at the Norcal Spring Cosplay Gathering, complete with compass and jar of dirt.
"Oh, we’re taking a photo?? We gotta get all our derp out first!"
Some pictures from the Norcal Spring Cosplay Gathering! Drop me a line to add credit.
Commemorative post for the Wicked Witch of the West dress that I made in September for a Wizard of Oz-themed event. The hat turned out ill-fitting and badly made, so I threw it away at the end. The dress was plenty of fun to wear and scowl at everyone!, but I was too busy to get decent photos in green makeup.
Six-panelled full circle skirt (which is really fun for swishing around and striding gloomily a la Severus Snape) and seven different fabrics (one was denim used for interfacing the waistband). I made up the bodice pattern and assembly as I went along, which was problematic at some points!
I’m considering harvesting the crepeback satin in the skirt for Jade’s god tier, since I’m unlikely to have an occasion to re-wear this dress anytime.
A masterpost of albums and videos, to be edited as new things are shared on the Facebook page. No more scrolling scavenger hunts!

Taken in the washroom before driving two hours to San Jose, and then in a clump of wilderness near the parking area at Kelley Park.
Today was awesome and I am tired.
Frog #2 finished! and I made sure to take pictures this time before losing it at a petrol station (as was the fate of poor Frog #1, alas).
Time: Seven episodes of Avatar. After twenty-two long years of never having watched the series, I finished it on Thursday after an intense four days …..and then promptly started a rewatch.
