Geeky Cocktail | FREEZE!

Ok, who else has been playing Overwatch? It’s been such an addicting game! I haven’t been playing as much as I’d like but it’s a fun game to play together with friends.

In honor of one of the most adorable characters to play, here’s a Mei-themed cocktail: FREEZE!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I’ll be the first to admit, I have been neglecting blogging these past few months in favor of cosplay. Oops?

I’m taking some time off sewing to clean up, clear my head, and save some money ∗ ◕ ں ◕ ∗. I also really do want to get back into blogging and drawing – I just got an iPad so I’ve been doodling like crazy. So hopefully soon I should get back into blogging regularly!

Happy Friday!
Happy Friday!

Ana – Overwatch: I know some of you play Overwatch, so how excited are you for Ana? She’s the mother of Pharah, and is basically a healing, sniping strong lady. I’ve been playing a lot of D.Va and Lucio, but can’t wait to try Ana!

Cotton candy martini from Style Me Pretty – um, yum? I’m all about pretty drinks, and double points if you can include cotton candy in there. I can’t remember the last time I actually bought cotton candy but I really want to try this recipe out.

This retro gaming illustration by Jelo Zapanza is so much fun – I’m actually going to a 90’s themed party tonight, so hopefully I’ll get to play some SEGA genesis!

What are you up to this weekend?

Ice Cream, Ice Cream

Now that June is here, my mind is totally in Summer mode (even though I feel like we barely had a Spring??) So what better way to share some Summer treats than with a round up of pretty ice cream? Nothing says Summer more than ice cream. So enjoy a sweet summer treat:

Cosplay | Princess Peach (Amiibo Dress)

I’m so excited to share with you my latest costume, Princess Peach! I made her Amiibo dress for PAX East 2016. I actually made a different Peach for last year’s PAX – but I cut it short into a cocktail dress because my skills just weren’t there yet.

If you told me a year ago that I would be able to create her gorgeous ball gown, I wouldn’t have believed you. That just goes to show that the more you practice and create, the better you’ll get! I need to remember this little fact a lot more in life.
