With exactly 2 weeks to Christmas, today is a good day to post this! It’s a traditional Christmas look with a house, a frozen river and a big Christmas tree. Then, when nighttime comes, the Christmas lights turn on and the stars and moon come out.
This is the same look, just one during the day and one glowing under black light. I put down the sky black light paints first and then painted over it with the daytime sky.
Whats that? You thought I was dead? Nope! Just took a really long nap. I needed a break from all the stuff I did for the past couple months. Now I’m back and here’s my final look for fall. Here in Canada, it’s been Winter for… well all of November. But with Thanksgiving coming up for a lot of you, I thought I’d share one last fallish look! I actually did this back in September or October, but never had the chance to post it. So here it is!
This is my take on Medusa. I’ve got the traditional snake stuff on the face, but I’ve added stone along the chest and creeping up towards the face. She can’t help it, she keeps checking herself out in the mirror all the time, so she’s slowly turning herself into stone.
I’m a little last with what to do after so many Halloween looks! Got a suggestion? Let me know what you’d want to see next! :D
Here’s the much requested Harley Quinn… my own take on it of course! If you want to know how I created it, check out the tutorial :D
This also works for cat woman… or pretty much any super hero or villain with a mask.

So many of you have asked for my costume pictures and I finally have them! Each of these pictures is actually a different time of me wearing this costume. I didn’t get too many full length pictures of it, so here’s what I could scrounge up. When I wore this at Fan Expo, I had my back all done in glitter and jewels as well, but sadly didn’t get any back pictures there, so just imagine there’s glitter… everywhere! I blacked out the background to first match my makeup picture, but to also hide all the millions of people in the background.
So I have 4 plush tentacles attached to my dress and then used my legs as the other two tentacles. Then we sewed on Flotsam and Jetsam. My friend Cheryl (as Ariel) made the awesome contract and I made the necklace and earrings.
