"There's too much going on here; you're evil, you're asthmatic, you're a robot. And why the cape? Are we going to the opera? I don't think so. ..."

Just got back from Costume College!
I'm still kinda running a bit ragged, so if you need something from me, please be patient. It's probably going to take me a week or so to catch up.

Re: Costume College I had a really great time and I'm looking forward to going back next year. Of course now I have like 50 historical dresses I want to make... everyone's dresses were SO AMAZING, I was constantly in state of envy. :D :D I had a lot of fun hanging out with people, too. Some of you I met last year and then I got to know you a bit better online and then getting to see you more this year was really great. :) :) I learned a lot in the classes (I made neat angelina-fiber fairy wings and half an Elizabethan corset)... and had a lot of fun.
If you're interested in historical costuming, you really should try Costume College! :)
Here's a couple quick photos. :)

bauhausfrau and twjudy at the Gala

One of the many gorgeous dresses over the weekend (and so many Victorian and 18th Century! My favorites!)

Judy and I had a few of our costumes in the exhibit. That was pretty exciting. :D

Kay, I'm going to go read some rose books and take a bath now and do a great deal of sleeping. <3

That's all.

Oscar's Photos of Mitch as a 300 Spartan

Our SDCC 2010 Masquerade Costumes, Bioshock 2!
I'm Sofia Lamb (the blond with the grey 40's dress in the middle). Judy (far left) as a Bouncer Big Daddy, Charlene as the Spider Splicer Rose (bloody dark green dress, red hair), Cheryll as a Big Sister (next to me), A.J. as a Rumbler Big Daddy (white suit) and Melanie and Kim as Little Sisters (little girls in the front).

a couple more photos:

Here's one from the lovely ACP:

Another video of the skit .... apologies, the videographer didn't cut wide enough, so it's a bit confusing, but at least you can see the costumes. Also, you can't really tell in the video,... but all of the suit's helmets light up. :)

I'm back from SDCC! Totally exhausted of course, but we had a great time!
The Futurama panel went really well. They showed the first act of Crystal's show, which featured Fry's comic book and a visit to Comic Con! (They gave out Fry's comic at the booth during the convention, too!) Her episode also features a costume contest. Haha. :) They also showed some clips from a lot of unaired episodes including Stephen and my mind-switching episode. Can't wait for you to see that one! :)

The actual SDCC masquerade this year had a ton of really awesome stuff, it was definitely an "on" year. Anything Goes School of Martial Arts had an amazing Muramasa group, there was a jawdropping Mass Effect group (with an alien with moving mouth!), awesome cabaret girls, Disney Princesses, amazing armor, MOTHRA, AMP suit... all kinds of stuff. I didn't think we'd win anything because there was so much awesome there, actually! (Even though the girls put in an obscene amount of work on their Bioshock costumes.) But we won Best Worksmanship! WOW! We were lame and forgot to take any photos of our costumes all together,... so I'll have to show you what we looked like later.

I also got to see a lot of lovely people! I wish I'd seen even more... so I'm already planning to go back next year for more days and do my booth again, so yay!

I feel like I've crossed the finished line now with SDCC over with. I still have a lot of work left on storyboards for my last episode of Futurama, though, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel ( I'm still going to be a bit busy for a week or two.) And Costume College is coming up, but I'm not making anything new for that. My birthday is coming up soon, too (Aug 9th)! Onward into late summer!

I won't have a booth this year, and I won't be at the convention until Thurs night. (We leave on Sun). If I see you, say hi! I'll probably wear Sleeping Beauty on Fri, otherwise, I'm just going to try and have fun catching up with people and enjoying the con.

I'll be competing in the masquerade with my HCC girls doing Bioshock on Saturday night. In fact, you can see some crazyass progress on their Bioshock costumes on our costume blog.

Other than that you can probably catch me at the Futurama Panel, they'll be showing world-premiere footage from my friend Crystal's episode, so if you can make it, go! It's hot back from Korea!
Also, you can check out my coworkers, Crystal and Derek's work and goods in the G-8 small press area.

Today is one of THOSE days.

I accidentally overwrote one of my storyboard files, and just in general my brain is worn out. I haven't really truly had a break in a while. We're almost done though, just a few more weeks. (JULY, WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN)

Beloved, please leave me animated gifs (anything funny is welcome). (or movies or pictures or whatever you like.)
I'll start off with this one of the 11th Doctor )

Super busy lately! waaaggh!

Just a few reminders, Mitch and I will be going to the Labyrinth Ball tomorrow, if you're going, hope to see you! I'll be wearing my Madame de Pompadour dress plus a white and gold wig and mask. Mitch will be wearing white furry pants and a white and gold bird mask. haha.

ALSO, While I am GOING to San Diego Comic Con next weekend, I will not be exhibiting/selling. I'm taking a bit of a break this year, just too busy with Futurama! BTW, I should be going to the Futurama panel. I'll be in the masquerade Saturday night (Bioshock), but otherwise I'm going to be civilian. I'll probably wear Sleeping Beauty on Friday... and if I feel like dressing up at all on Saturday (in the morning), I might wear one of my Rose Tyler outfits.

I'll also be at Costume College the weekend of August 8th. Judy and I'll have a couple things in the CoCo exhibit, Judy'll be teaching a few things and we'll both be taking classes and going to the Gala.

BABY is rereleasing the gingham check dress... the same one that's been their front page drawing forever (circa 2002)... the same one that I adore... and the same one that was the first BABY/VOLKS collaboration. (more pics: 1, 2, 3.) Those last two are Kyoko from Kamikaze Girls wearing the dress (with matching Kira BJD). The dress never showed up in Kamikaze Girls the film... but Novala does describe a gingham dress in the book. (""...a red gingham-checked dress with a shirred bodice and three tiers of lace on either side, the whole thing accented with red ribbons and extravagantly adorable corsage-type roses." ~ re: ~ egl)

The bust and waist measurements would fit me... but I'd worry about the arms... and how short-waisted (or short-skirted) it might be. Plus it really truly is a dress that I could easily make myself, pretty much. (I could even do the ribbon embroidery and rhinestones myself) And I really need to save money... So, I'll be good. But isn't this amazing? I wonder if anyone else gives a crap. haha.

Hey folks!
This morning I want to show you guys the etsy shops of two Futurama coworkers, Crystal and Tricia!

Crystal's Jewelry

I've been friends with Crisso for years. She's worked at Disney, WB, the Simpsons and currently is a Director on Futurama. In her free time lately she's been making beautiful jewelry!

Tricia's Artwork, "onelittleelephant"

Tricia is another one of my friends and coworkers on Futurama and has also worked for Disney and the Simpsons. She does beautiful and cute illustrations in her free time.

Please check them out! <3

Well! I finally broke down and ordered a saree. I'm going to use it to make a Regency (Jane Austen period) dress. I also got some shoes, because they came in size 11. We'll see how they fit. <3
I still want a white and silver saree for another project I'm working on... but I haven't found a good one for a good price yet. So I guess I'll wait. Who knows, maybe I'll find one in Artesia!

I grew up in South Carolina and my parents still live there.
For July 4th weekend they rode their street bikes to Helen which is an adorable alpine village in Georgia. This is what the Helenites do for fun on the 4th of July:

Apparently all down the river it was like this. My dad took this photo. :)
