doily lace


Here she is! Genevieve Erica Gilroy. Tassonian priest of the Holy Matrial Orthodoxy.
LARP: Blackpowder and Bloodlines, a brand new LARP bases in Victoria, Australia.

Costume made completely by me. I’m icredibly pleased with my robes/coat (which I made on Tuesday) from 5 meters of black wool and my neck ruff which consists of two thrifted tea-dyed lace doilies sewn together.

I’m also secretly thrilled that her initials ended up being ‘GG’, which was genuinely not on purpose.

Can’t wait for the weekend to begin!

(For some reason this post was in my drafts and it was meant to post 4 days ago….)

It’s finally done. I found a pattern from a book published in the early 1900s and wanted to see if I could recreate it. Though I had to tweak several lines of instructions, i think it turned out beautifully.

This doily was created in size 10 crochet thread, and the final product measures around 13 inches (though that might change after I wash and block it).

I want to crochet another one, but use a finer thread and hook… see how it looks and feels created with a more delicate fiber.

Not sure what I’m going to do with this one, though…

rated M, for language and adult situations.

It’s not completely unexpected, but it’s still a shock to see it. Thick, expensive card stock, pale pink with roses and their names embossed in gold.

Madge Undersee and Gale Hawthorne, along with their families, request the honour of your presence at their wedding…

I’m happy for them, I truly am. I’m just still kind of shocked that after nine years together, it took Gale less than three months to marry my replacement.

It’s not like I thought Gale and I would ever marry each other, even if our friends all expected it. And our breakup was completely mutual. But that he moved on so fast is kind of a slap.

Part Two - Hold Me Tight

You had no idea where you were going but your feet were carrying you further from the dorm; until you weren’t sure where you were. Mindlessly wandering the streets of Seoul with the afternoon sun blaring down on your skin, your head began to pound. You weren’t sure if it was the hot sun or your swirling emotions that made you feel sick to your stomach.
