Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Yikes, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!

I couldn’t be happier that the weather is starting to warm up – I actually fractured my foot back in January and was in a boot for 8 weeks D: I didn’t get much exercise during that time so I’m really glad I can start going for long walks again.

Happy Friday!
Happy Friday!

Unicorn Pinata – Ok, I’m totally posting this one because of the unicorn frappuccino’s…which by the way, I haven’t tried. I admit I have a large curiosity about them but from what I’ve heard, it’s not worth it. So instead have this fun little piñata – or make an army of many

1930’s Inspired Seventh Heaven Cocktail – it’s no surprise I love a good cocktail, and this vintage one both looks and sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it out!

Anti Depressants Poster – how cute is this poster! Kitties sure do make a good anti-depressant, and this poster makes me smile so much.

What are you loving this week?

Geeky Cocktail | Widow’s Kiss

Another Friday, another installment of Overwatch-themed geeky cocktails! I’m again collaborating on Drunkenwatch with my stream friends Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight. This week features silenced’s main, Widomaker in “Widow’s Kiss”. This fun purple drink is dark and mysterious like Widow, and uses some french liqueurs to match her origin.

If you want to go really fancy, add some salt to the rim for when someone on your team picks widowmaker (unless its silenced_knight). s( ^ ‿ ^)-b

As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out.

Anime Boston 2017 Vlog

Well, one of my goals this year was to create more videos – including con vlogs. It only took 4 months to actually create something, but here’s my Anime Boston con vlog! Or, watch us derp around and do a lot of nothing ^^

Individual costumes posts (and a Luna video walk through) are coming soon!



What kind of content are you interested in seeing in my videos? More b-roll? More cosplayers? More talking? Let me know – I’m only hoping to improve my vlogs as the year goes on! :)

(ps – feel free to subscribe to my youtube channel!)

Product & Print | 083

Now that we’re into April, I can finally say that con crunch is over! It’s been a crazy few months making costumes for PAX and Anime Boston, and I’m looking forward to having some down time and spring cleaning. I’m also really looking forward to spending more time on the blog creating new content and featuring other creatives. I’m back this week with a new Product & Print featuring a fun little animal theme.

Product & Print

One of our favorite booths at Anime Boston was Horse Fiddle Press – both Sam & I loved the quirky cat and shiba art (she got bought a shirt!). I especially loved the fancy shiba pins – they’re geishas! They are such a fun addition to any pin collection. Pin 1 | Pin2

If you’re going to go out wearing a crazy shiba pin, go a little more minimalistic in the home with a clean geometric cat print – I love this one by BlacknBoo. And yes, you can be a cat person and a dog person! (But if you don’t, Ellen’s shop has a lot of other animal prints, like this elephant one).

Do you have any favorite animals that if you see it on something, you have to have it?

If you’re an Overwatch fan, have you played Orisa yet? We decided to welcome Orisa to the Overwatch family with the Fusion (Screw) Driver, based off her “Fusion Driver” weapon, and inspired by the Numbani poster below.

Alternatively, this is a really fancy screwdriver – a Fusion Driver! ‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥ω˂̣̣̥ )‧º·˚But it’s more fun having a theme cocktail – especially if it relates to an activity or event you’re attending.

As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out.
