Going on Hiatus

I'm not enjoying writing this blog atm, so I'm putting it on hold for a little while.


Enjoy this lovely bee till I get back!

Black Goth Mask

Another commission!  Also for an upcoming vampire ball, this one I was requested to make black, gothic and have skulls. 




I added a selection of jet beads, sequins, seed beads and skull beads all in black, but my favourite addition is the black feathers!  I think they add height and drama and I love them!

Stained Yellow Mask

I loved making this!  It was a commission for a vampire game.  The character stains everything he touches, so I stained the mask and used darker beads to make it look like the stain touched them too.




It has seed beads, little skull beads and fake gems all hand stitched.

Enteri and Skirt - Legacy Kit

Please excuse the dodgy photos!  Once again these are my last minute making test pics!


This blue robe is another Folkwear pattern - the Enteri.  I made it out of stretch velvet, which is not at all the correct fabric, but it was in my stash so I went for it!


My skirt did not have a pattern,  I just pleated a load of cotton down to my waist and added a waistband.  I had this cotton in my stash as well which was lucky!  Especially as feathers are one of the symbols of the Curator who we follow IC.


The eagle eyed amongst you might recognise the chiffon of my veil from my evening gown I made to wear to the Mansion House.  I had left over chiffon as well so I used the embroidery machine to add feathers to it!

Katy made me a hat to pin my veil to and I was all set!  The pic of me in the hat is the only one I actually took of myself all event - too busy having fun to remember photos for this blog!

Burnoose

I've started playing ina new to me fest larp called Legacy.  It's great fun! 

Anyway, I always worry about being cold so one of the first things I did was run up a cloak to stay warm in!

Please excuse the late night phone selfies, I made all my kit in just under a week!  This is the Folkwear burnoose pattern and it is a lovely sew!


I ended up not actually wearing this IC as it was so warm at the event!  Though, it did come in handy to throw over my pyjamas and head on a late night bathroom run!


I love the tassel on the hood!  And I really want to make more of these!

Dino Tail

A small has had a birthday and what they really, really wanted was a dino tail so I obliged!



Excuse the poor photos, due to the hurry I made this in I did not have a lot of time to do anything beyond a hurried quick snap!

It's made of green fleece with grey fleece to be the spikes!

Mushroom Birthday Cake

I know I say this every year, but I really do think this is the best cake I've ever made!


It's a three tier vanilla cake with chocolate butter cream and fondant mushrooms.  


I coloured some of the buttercream green and piped vines up the side and added little sugarpaste flowers.


It wasn't the design I'd intended, but I love it anyway!
