So last weekend my son had a birthday party. I was busy with a lot of sewing, a new puppy (and bunny), and who knows what else. Usually I am very efficient with these things, but I forgot about goody bags. His party was at an indoor kart racing place that has arcade games. I decided, instead of getting icky candy and plastic toys that will break within one second, I'd make pouches and fill them with quarters for the arcade. Originally, I used this tutorial to make these pouches:

I've been doing a great deal of custom work as of late, and haven't had much time to post new clothing that I've made! Also, we have acquired a poodle puppy (I'm allergic to dogs, so the poodle is the least allergenic), a tiny bunny - for the lonely guinea pig we have, and another Robo hamster to replace the one that died. So that's one dog, a bunny, a guinea pig, and two hamsters. It's crazy, I tell you! The puppy is more like a cat, the bunny and guinea pig will cram themselves into their hidey castle together so they look like one animal with two heads, and the hamsters run around like maniacs in their Habitrail...photos at the very bottom of this post. This is a coat I made from scratch - it was a present - this guy wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a jacket, so it was a challenge for him to get correct measurements on the sly, and he did his best.

So I'm a little bit caught up with things - except posting more stuff to my website - I wanted to show you some of the costumes I made for Halloween. A couple of customers were kind enough to send me photos. I know sometimes they forget, but when they do, I really appreciate it!!!: Dark Archer The Octopus and the Fox if you are in that direction!

As my website product pages languish....I am working on many custom costumes. Just finished another Leeloo. However, this one has hidden pockets. The outer part of the above-knee band has a hidden pocket, on each side. Pockets have been a big request this year, hidden or otherwise. Who wants to carry a big bulky bag when you can hide your junk in your pocket(s)?

No joke kids....as soon as I finished SDCC costumes, I already got Halloween costume requests and some other costume requests for upcoming cons. Here's a customer photo of a green Daria jacket I made:

Hi! Long time no Blog! SDCC just came and went, like the wind. I made a bunch of costumes for it, but managed to snag one photo from one customer - from her Twitter. :D The Baroness!!!
