Victorian Monsters Smash Book

I have the orange version for Halloween of course! The video will show you the concept. My smash book just happens to be filled with images and design concepts for my 3 costumes for the Victorian Monsters theme at Steamcon this year. Started making sketches and notes on vendors for materials. Its more tactile than just bookmarking sites on the computer and I like that. Fabric swathes, clip art images, and pockets for keeping the souvenirs of Steamcon. So ignore the cute and think how you could use a smash journal for Halloween.

Easter at our House

Easter Egg

This is before the dye bath. I had a sheet of Halloween fingernail stickers. The other 2 have eyeballs and spiderwebs. If they don't hold it should be enough time in the dye to make polka dots when peeled off.

Back from my second home

It was a crazy week in California for USITT a theater conference. The pre-conference classes were at Disneyland. I spent an entire day behind the scenes at Disney with costumers. Toured the storage facilities and went off property to see the fabric printing shop. Yep, Disney is now custom printing costume fabrics for the park. A panel on how they light up costumes for electric light parade at Disneyworld was awesome. Touched the yeti fur that was off the figure on the matterhorn. Its closed for renovations and the animatronics costumer thought we would like to see the yeti in person. We only had 8 hours in Disneyland during a very crowded spring break week. We did thankfully make it through the haunted mansion 3 times.

Halloween on the brain

The little snake bottle is from DeeDee & Shark a very talented artist making spooky, creepy, and truly unique ceramics. Her in person...
