Have a boosterrific Booster Gold day, everyone!

My friend a while back was looking through information about Booster Gold and found that his birthday is December 29, but in the future. So today is a day we like to use to celebrate him and his large ego. (it's also my birthday too so that's the only reason I find it such a big deal.)

So yeah. Booster Gold doesn't sew, but he still does some handiwork on his costume.
also he does so shirtless because I guess he didn't think to bring another set of clothes.

Leather masks are super cool

My sister and I spent today making a couple leather masks.

I drafted the patterns out of paper. Then we held it up to her face, she told me what she wanted changed and I tweaked things.
we ended up with pretty amazing patterns which she traced and cut out of leather.
then she wetted the back and walked around the house while wearing silly masks so they fit snugly to her face. here's the two we've made so far.


My sister has ordered leather paint, so when we get them painted. I'll post more.

playing with wigs

so kinda failed experiment here:

My sister and I have decided to debut our Birds of Prey costumes at Arisia next month. Meaning we need to actually make out costumes. And the first thing my sister wanted to play with was trying to curl a wig for Lady Blackhawk.

He go:

we're probably going to try using hot water to straighten it a bit.

I have finals this week, so I'm too busy to be interesting. But once the simester's over I will start working on my Lady Blackhawk costume.

Also I have a fashion blog on Tumblr here where there are pretty pretty costumes and geeky stuff.

Pretend to be a time traveler day 2k12

All the things that happened on Saturday with this holiday was an accident. It happened to be Pretend to be a time traveler day, but it was also Fezziwig's Ball in Salem. It's a historical dance where I usually run check in, so I was already wearing a ballgown when I decided to go to the comic book store:
