My friends got last-minute tickets to the 2019 Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball, and I helped outfit them for the event! I grabbed two black wigs from my collection, some leftover flowers and skulls, and threw together these two headpieces to go with some medeival d...

Two awesome fantasy geek things smooshed into one - D&D and GOT. I had the idea to pun off of this and make myself a Mother of Dungeons and Dragons costume almost immediately after last year's LOJ Masquerade Ball, and I couldn't wait to work on it. What's funny about t...

The most asked about part of our costumes at the LOJ Masquerade Ball (and the easiest way to find us in the crowd!) was my magical, glowing  D20 Staff of Awesomeness! Here's how I made it:

Step 1: To the Etsy! I knew I wanted a big red D20 to light up at the top of my s...

I've never made a dragon head before, and I had no idea where to start. I've not done much in the way of sculpting, other than the Zuul masks I created for last year's LOJ Masquerade Ball. I knew this dragon head needed to be much lighter, so I couldn't use plaster str...

Painting this dragon jacket was a labor of love, and a literal pain in the neck. It took, collectively, 49 hours of work over the course of three weeks, from the cutting/gluing phase through the painting phase. It's the most labor-intensive piece I've ever made! I thin...

I've started taking oil painting lessons to brush up on some long rusty skills. Until the last couple of months, I hadn't really picked up oil paints since my freshman year of college, nearly 25 years ago! I've really missed working in this medium, and it has been so f...

For this year's Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball, I'm creating a dragon scale tuxedo jacket for my husband. I'm not going to completely reveal our costumes here yet as it's still a month away, haha - but I'm really proud of how cool this jacket is turning out. I've...

When your friend has a She-Ra themed laser tag birthday party, you have to show up in style! We were seriously budget crunched with this one (since I'm in the process of gathering/constructing our more elaborate costumes for this summer's Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade...

A friend who does competitive trivia gaming asked me to construct a Brienne of Tarth costume for her to wear in the championship game. I had only about a week and a half to put it all together in the midst of life stuff, so it was a quick but epic build consisting of c...

I've always enjoyed painting still life, but this last year or so I've started going a little more specific and nerdy with the idea. I've been drawing RPG dice sets with watercolor pens and Prismacolor pencils, and it has been super fun! My favorite dice drawing so far...

My short story "Boat Hitch Momma" was selected for inclusion in "Shadowed Doorways: The 2018 NaNo Los Angeles Anthology" and I am super excited about it!

I learned so much from the editing process of this particular short story. I wrote "Boat Hitch Momma" on the day of...
