About

Starting a New Adventure

After going to my first anime convention back in 2009 and seeing all the amazing costumes, and learning that it was called Cosplay, I decided I wanted to cosplay at my next convention. I didn't know how to sew at the time so I was stuck purchasing them online from places like Ebay and other cosplay websites. I spent quiet a bit of money on said costumes and realized that most of the fabric used to make them I've seen in my local Joann Fabric stores when shopping with my mom.

I made the decision then to craft my own costumes. My mom had some basic sewing knowledge and I had some basic hand sewing knowledge from my middle school days so I started with that. It took me no time to choose my first costume and I got to work Immediately on Merida from Disney's Brave.

I learned a lot from that first shopping trip not just about fabric but, about patterns and how to use them. After some lessons on using a sewing machine from my mom and what a seam allowance was I managed to create Merida's Riding dress and the nightgown underneath. I fell in love with the process of crafting not only the dress but the bow and arrow that went along with it and couldn't wait to start my next project. The rest is history.

I have since crafted 6 other costumes ranging from Disney Princesses to anime. I have also increased my skills along the way and moved up to making plush dolls and embroidery. I look forward to gaining more sewing skills and designing and crafting more costumes.
