Halloween Plans and Progress Teasers

It's halfway through September already, which means I've already begun the mad rush for costume sewing times. This year we've chosen the wonderfully quirky and fun web comic Cucumber Quest. Myself as Princess Nautilus, my chibi as Cucumber and Mister will be Sir Carrot.

If you haven't read this comic yet, I highly recommend you go look see. It's cute, fun and the story line is fun

Because my Nautilus costume is the most elaborate of the three, it's been the first up for sewing. Progress shots are get!

Why yes, I am hand placing about a billion and eleventy tiny little rhinestones on the sheer organza sleeves. Thought it was a great idea until I began ~_~

And yes, these are real nautilus shell halves I hope to use for my hair 6_9

More to come soon 8D

Morning Frivolities

Well it's been a long time since I made a post here, keep forgetting that this journal exists in truth. My main haunt is still eljay, despite the fact that it's gone near completely silent. Still, I suppose I should attempt to keep this one up, even if more off than on and I guess I'll start with some pictures taken during this morning's jog (I'm currently training for the Santa Paws 5k along with my little love, Mister, who will be running with me as well).

I woke up to a froggy day, which was a nice break from the skin searing sun I've been dealing with for the last million years, so the jog was nice.

Pete (this is Pete btw, a miniature rose addition to my humble porch garden) has a new bud blooming. Go go Pete @_@/

Dew on my mums, which are all nearly bloomed. They aren't pink, or red, more of an orangey red, and very pretty. So far so good with these guys, now I just need to hold them up through the season change and not freak out when the flowers start dying.

My training has been going well. Slow, but well. It's been off and on because I've been so sick, I'm hoping though that come November and Santa Paws time, I'll be fit enough not to die through it. Wish me luck, with the way my body is going, I'll need it u_u;;
