Last year for San Diego Comic Con I did cosplay for the first time and it was def an interesting experience.
It all started when I painted a couple of mini ballerina WonderWomans for fun and after I finished, I thought it would be pretty cool to actually make a real costume based off my painting.
I’ve been dancing ballet for most of my life and it was very important for me to make this costume look legit as if I could dance right on stage with it! :)
I ordered a custom ballet bodice and sewed on notions from Britex Fabrics in SF. I ordered an inexpensive fluffy tutu off Etsy and sewed star notions on the fabric. A gold rope tassel made my “lasso of truth,” I dyed a pair of my old pointe shoes red and switched out my pink satin ribbons for some awesome red and metallic silver ones! My bulletproof bracelets are doubled silver on gold filigree cuffs from Forever 21 and I hot glued another star notion to that. I chose my favorite tiara off a store on Amazon and sewed another red star notion to complete my costume.
This was such a fun project-I may have to do something else ballerina-themed sometime soon. :)
This is my Valentine’s Day gift from my boyfriend, Juannie this year. First off, I have to say his surprises never cease to amaze me and I’m overwhelmed at how creative and incredible this guy is. After tearing open the wrapping paper I immediately burst into tears, ugly crying all over the place. For those who don’t know about my love for It’s a Small World-it runs really deep and Juannie had an idea to make me this beautifully crafted Small World wall clock. He 3D modeled it in Maya, 3D printed it, pieced different clock parts together and hand painted everything with gold, silver and white acrylic paint. I love it, I love him-It’s absolutely perfect.
