About

One goal, One ring, One premiere!

I've always been crafting, for as long as I can remember.

My mom taught me to sew, knit and crochet. I learned how to paint and draw from an early age and if there was a craft to learn, I wanted to learn it.

Last on my list was learning how to work with leather and my goal to cosplay as Thorin Oakenshield solved my need to learn.

Calgary Expo 2013 was my turning point and I ended up getting so many compliments on my bracers that my cousin suggested I set up a shop on Etsy in order to allow other fans to find me if they needed pairs of their own.

Ultimately I agreed to set up the shop because I was in need of help in my goal of raising enough money to go to NZ for the 2014 premier of the 3rd Hobbit Film. I met Richard Taylor and he was so amazing and talked so much of the Weta Workshop that I knew I needed to visit.

So, here I am, I'm trying to be as creative as possible in offering cool fandom things to wear, make new friends and learn new things as I add to my goal to go to NZ.

In the two months that I've been here, I've met already some incredible people and I've learned so many new things that I feel that even when NZ is done and gone, I'll still be around trying my hand at new dyeing techniques, adding different crafts to the repertoire and ultimately just having fun.

    I just turned 30 years young, I've been crafting for what seems like forever! I never thought to start an Etsy until I started cosplaying (that's me as Thorin Oakenshield!) and now I just want to share fandom love in craft form with the world :)
