I can thankfully say that this weekend has been a very productive. After fretting and agonizing over Toothless for months, I finally sat down and started working on the costume again. As you might remember, I had a bit of a snafu with the original legs I built, and I felt overwhelmed and out of … Continue reading Here There Be Dragons
I've finally finished one of the colonial stays I had on my to-do list...just in time for the interpreter it was made for to wear it for two days before leaving our organization. ::sigh:: She has asked to purchase it from the National Colonial Farm and, as it was made to fit her measurements, everyone … Continue reading Ducks, Rows, and Dragon*Con

There had been a big delay in getting the parade ribbons. They hadn't been delivered when they were supposed to be, and we ended … Continue reading Dragon*Con 2011 – Saturday

I started working full-time hours back in October - getting up at 4am to help open the shop at 5am. After 9 … Continue reading Dragon*Con 2011 – Return to Con Reporting – Friday
