Valkyrie & Thor!

My headdress & shoulder armor are made of layered foam, painted gold, with metal details. My shield is painted cardboard & paper with metal details. My spear is painted cardboard & wood, with gold ribbons & bells. 

John's helmet is layered & sealed cardboard, painted gold. His belt is faux-leather with a sculpted clay medallion. 

Yes, we went through more than a couple cans of spray paint...

Happy Halloween!

It's My Birthday!

I'm happy it's Friday. Happy it's sunny. Happy about all the important, lovely, good things in my life and the wonderful, fun, sweet people who have made it all so happy.

Three Fall Outfits

Created these a year or two ago, but with the crisp, cool breezes scattering fallen leaves over lawns and paths, it felt like time to share them again.

Hello, October

October has always been my favorite month... Halloween, my birthday, my wedding (and subsequent anniversaries), candy corn, changing leaves, and all things pumpkin. But the last couple Octobers have brought with them some difficult experiences. My fondness for the month is a little bit shaken, and I'm hesitant to celebrate wholeheartedly without hesitation or superstition.

But I'm feeling a little braver this morning and hoping for a kindly and cheerful October that brings only happy surprises. I made some wishes on a dandelion's fluff last month. I wonder if they'll come true?

In a Loch Ness Monster's Garden in the Shade

A little ink drawing I did recently for a fun Loch Ness-themed gallery show on display now at American Greetings.
