Costume Contest by Crovv
Costume Contest
Located at King Richard's Faire in MA, this was during the 2014 costume contest where I BARELY took first place in the creative costume division against an AMAZING Thorin Oakenshield costume (and I do mean amazing).

Mask preview by Crovv
Mask preview
Th is one of :iconun-do: 's  half Raptor Skull Masks. Turns out it wasn't anything I could use for my own projects and I am needing funds for Otachi's costume pretty badly. I decided to create a fancy Masquerade mask out of this bad boy and see if I can later sell him/her to get some more funds for my other costume projects.  This is a WIP a long way off from being completed, but currently Features real rooster feathers and resin horns from DVC.  As all the markings are done by hand and are no planned out ahead, just whatever I feel at the moment, they are not PERFECTLY lined up or the same on either side, but I'm trying.

So, it's official, My husband, Roland, and I are heading down to DragonCon 2015 in Atlanta Georgia this year!  
I feel excited but also VERY nervous and scared. So many amazing costumes and people are there and I'm just so....bleh.
We're staying at the Omni Hotel, which is fancy and awesome! It's on the DragonCon transport route, so that part makes me very happy (it was one of the only sort of close hotels not completely booked up).

I know one other person going this year, is anyone else going to attend?


Otachi is slow going and I need to pick up the pace! I'm working on her body right now, padding up her digi legs. I bought even MORE new fabric to try and make her body look decent. I have no idea what I'm doing! I still haven't figure out what to do about the bobble type things on the underside of her tail. I've been tossing around about 5 different ideas and none of them seem to be that great. Sigh. So much more work.  Her feet are HUGE and it means I can go down stairs, but I cannot go UP them, which will make life difficult. I'm seriously questioning if I could even make it onto an escalator. I doubt I could.

I'm going to get fitted for her wings this weekend and see what's what with those. Attaching the metal / aluminum wing mechanisms to the fabric costume is yet another huge hurtle I need to face. Just So, so, so much to do.

Otachi's Feet WIP by Crovv
Otachi's Feet WIP
Here is the start of Otachi's Feet! this picture also shows my process for making feet (same way I made the feet for my draconian costume). These feet feature large raptor claws from DVC (in squishy foam so if I bump anything it wont get damaged). These feet are twice the size of my natural feet...so walking would be *cough* fun.

My Wedding by Crovv
My Wedding
A picture from my wedding in October. We held it at King Richard's Faire in Massachusetts.

This photo was taken by our talented photographer, Mr.  Thomas Henry.

My dress was made by a vendor on etsy and it was amazingly made specifically to my sizes. Amazing vendor: VendettaCouture

My Husband's cavalier outfit was stuff we pieced together from various vendors on the internet.


We had out own bagpiper, and a whole cast of professional actors. BEST venue for a wedding. I could only afford the cheapest wedding package they offered, but they treated me like their new queen. Love all their hard work!
