And a great big hello to my family.

I'm glad no one reads my blog so I can use it this way. 

Time Gift Ideas for my family

-Go thrifting/ mighty dollar shopping with me. You foot the bill. 

-Packaging design assistance. I've been unable to clearly nail down my new packaging ideas. Help me pick, new suggestions welcome. Brainstorming/ construction assistance.

-sanding/ polishing assistance.

-Technique assistance. Can be for anything that you are better at than I am. Brainstorming/ application time.


-Production assistance.
Guess who gets to be my unpaid intern for a day? Yes, you can be significantly overqualified for this position. 

-I wanna go to the zoo. Seriously. Someone take me to a friggin zoo and pay. Be prepared for a day of selfies with animals. If this is expensive then skip please. I didn't research at all.

-I'm tiered of being an adult. Let's go to the toy store $10 budget. 

-Bring me lunch at work. Something yummy please(no fast food). Can be homemade.

I am Iron Man


 "Iron Man. That's kind of catchy. It's got a nice ring to it. I mean it's not technically accurate. The suit's a gold titanium alloy, but it's kind of provocative, the imagery anyway." -Tony Stark

My final #Nerdvember outfit is the genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist, Tony Stark, specifically in his Iron Man suit! This dress with the goldenrod tights are about the perfect color combination (though I could, just as easily, been a Gryffindor.) I have lamented on more than one occasion that I don't own an arc reactor brooch, so I may have to remedy that some day but this vintage gold Trifari one played that role job for today.

Well November's over. It looks like I need another reason to dress up! What should I do next?

My Tongue Keeps Getting Caught in the Mouth Slit. It's Maddening.

John and I went out to patrol the Venture Compound. All was quiet on the home front, but you've got to stay vigilant.

 I am vengeance.
 I am the night.
 I am the Bat.
 The night is mine.



 Go Team Venture!

Snow very wrong

Since I'm already cheating, I may as well share all the old costume photos. 2 for the price of one. This one was for Mom. And remember, these are waay old, so this is proof i was #DisneyBounding before all of you kids. 



 Everything about this is SO wrong. I need a redo.

 This was before I owned crinolines and underskirts. So young, so dumb.



Vampires never age right?

I never did upload these, and I ran out of time today for a shoot. So 2 year old photos is what I'm presenting today.  Sorry. It's all I've got.






Check my instagram for more up to date photos!
Happy Haunting,

Voorhees A Jolly Good Fellow

 We headed out to play in the woods today. only one of us came back. What's a little murder between friends?
Mostly this was to get some fabulists photos of my Jason Voorhees inspired outfit. I saved my Mr. Voorhees brooch for just such an occasion. I figure when I get a real website going, these can be used as publicity shots for my new handmade novelty brooches. I love my little Jason and his stupid eats!
Anyway, John was kind enough to patiently snap while I danced in between the trees covered in fake blood. Pitter, patter, splatter. It's the small ones you have to watch out for.
