thing-a-day twenty-eight: the final bite

DSC00173

I finished up the felt apple by attaching it to a headband.  The month-long dash has been a great one, and I move on with a lot of energy into preparing myself for the final stretch of student teaching, and onto job applications!  Hopefully this last project – an apple – with bring me some luck as I go!

I will be taking off the rest of the week (I know, you are SO going to miss me after a post every day of the last month =p), but expect me back next week… probably with wedding stuff!  Ha!

thing-a-day twenty: Refia’s boot cuffs

Into the twenties we go!  Just eight days left!  I believe I will be able to finish Refia’s costume in this last week; that’ll be my goal for the end of this experience!

I purchased these great boots and only needed to add a white cuff to them to create the effect in the images of the character.  A bit of the main dress fabric lined with some leftover white satin and done!  They’re even removable, set in temporarily with washable hem tape so I can wear the boots without them in the future.

I’ll be wearing this to Animeland Wasabi next month if you’ll be there, so keep an eye out for me (but look fast ‘cause I’ll be gone in another second, organizing the cosplay contest again!).  See you there!

thing-a-day nineteen: bursting the bubble

Nick and I had a few engagement photos taken today by our friend Lilacwire, using both her camera and Nick’s.  As a part of the project, I made these two chalkboard speech bubbles for us to hold!  They came out super cute, and we’re thinking of having smaller versions of them at the reception.

I know it doesn’t really follow my ‘wearable’ theme for thing-a-day, but they’re just too cute, and so easy to make.  Just cut out shapes from foam core, spray on a few layers of chalkboard paint, and write away!  We did these for about $5 for both.  Come to think of it, you could make cute pin-sized versions that would be really fun, and indeed wearable!
