I made a Thor Dress to see Thor The Dark World with my friends! I wore it with my Haenuli galaxy prince tights, We’re All Mad Here Gallifreyan necklace and my Thor earrings from 1928.
I used Simplicity 2588 as my muslin pattern. The red sleeves are a cotton sateen with top stitched detail lines. The base navy fabric is a glitter dotted stretch denim from Joann’s and the silver is a snakeskin pleathery type fabric that I Heat N Bond Lite-d on and then satin stitched the edges with metallic thread. I added large buttons (that I painted silver) on top of the appliquéd silver pleather circles. I ended up not adding the skirt stripes in my original sketch because the metallic thread satin stitching was so problematic! I broke two bobbins and the thread kept breaking and tangling all the time. Metallic thread is the worst!

This is my art of the 9th Doctor and Rose Tyler from the Series 1 finale, still one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes! A lot of plot has happened since then so I thought it would be nice to go “back to the beginning” so to speak. (At least the beginning of “New” Doctor Who, that is.)
I think you need a Doctor.

This piece is made up of a pencil drawing, COPIC marker colors and then a bit of a NASA galaxy photo as an overlay in Photoshop.
Check out our Star Wars family costumes! We did Star Wars “A New Hope” Princess Leia, Han Solo and some twin baby ewoks! I’ve loved Star Wars since I was a kid so it was a lot of fun to finally make these costumes. I made my husband’s and my costumes. Han Solo’s gun belt was made by Brian for me. The ewok costumes were bought. More details later!
This is at Disney’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in Disneyland. It’s the one time of year that adults can wear costumes to the park! We really enjoy it.
