If you guys aren’t following Jen Bartel, then you’re seriously missing out. She’s an amazing illustrator, and she recently created an Overwatch Girl Gang print, and I fell in love immediately. So immediately, that I had to cosplay her version Mei!
I would do a costume breakdown, but there’s really not much here to show…I bought a satin bomber jacket from Forever 21 and added some fur. The booties were bought on amazon and hand painted, and the bat is a plastic toy from target that I also hand painted. If anyone is interested in a more detailed breakdown with photos, let me know! I’d be happy to write something up.
Since Mei is part of a girl gang, I thought it fitting to add a few themed pins :) I added the Filthy ‘Casual’ pin, D.Va bunny pin from ShatteredStore and a Sombra pin from Rocketman Props.
Be sure to follow Jen on Twitter and check out her shop.
Which of the girl gang characters is your favorite?
This year for Halloween, I decided to make an Alice costume! I actually saw a variation of this costume on a Simplicity pattern and knew I wanted to create this “version” of classic Alice.
(Also today I learned a valuable lesson – even if you iron your cotton to be completely flat, if you’re in the car for a long time it *will* wrinkle back up! >.<
I’m dying to do a side-by-side of my first Alice Madness – essentially the same costume base, though I’ve definitely improved upon details and fit in the past few years.
Full costume breakdown is below!
I was digging through some old blog posts and saw that I did a “Things That Make Me Say ‘Yay’” for fall back in 2014, so I thought it would be fun to create something similar for this year.
I’m not sure where everyone else is located, but the weather here has been H-O-T and nothing at all like typical fall. I am so ready for cooler weather!

Tis the season for spooky halloween fun! To celebrate the season, I drew up some fun little onigiri’s dressed up for halloween – we have a pumpkin, a witch, a ghost, and some kitty heads. I had a lot of fun making these!
I had actually drawn the witch one last year but forgot to post it anywhere, ha! So this idea has been floating around my head for an entire year :)

Happy Halloween planning! If you end up using these, let me know :)
Can you guys believe it’s finally October?? I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for cooler weather. This month I have a few craft projects that have been sitting in my brain for a while, and I can’t wait to share them all!
First up we have a special DIY Unicorn Fall Flower Crown – and it’s so easy. You can easily make material substitutions, and can even forego the unicorn horn for a simple flower crown. These are perfect for a fun and fancy magical halloween costume, or just to add some flair to an everyday look!
