A brief interlude via a haystack

So cosplay progress is slowing due to the insidious creeping approach of Christmas. I’m spending all my spare time either making gifts, shopping for gifts or shopping for things to make gifts. It’s a bit of pain in the neck, truth be told. And I’ve decided at this key juncture that my study needs a complete do-over so I now can’t find any of the above that I’ve already bought. It’s going well.

In any event, I thought I’d start sharing a few things I’ve been making for this years overly commercialised and expensive holiday season, as well as some other cool things. One of my friends is a massive assassin’s creed fan, so as such I downloaded this handy pattern by Kirsten, bought some chunky wool and quickly crocheted a funky scoodie (that’d be a cross between a hood and a scarf), which is delightfully modelled by my ever handy glass skull – everyone should have one.



I’ve got a tonne of other stuff to do, so keep your eyes peeled for yet more zombie bears (they never end), more themed cowls (Star Wars next time!), mass effect amigurumi, a dragon and some random gloves! And as a totally random ending because I absolutely have to share how cool these are I HAVE DRAGON SLIPPERS!! They’re stupid and stairs are almost impossible, but I love them.

I’m best described as a jack of all trades type - I have a lot of interests and tend to bounce sporadically from one to another, picking up new ones on the way. Predominantly I make things and read. I do play console games (I think at present I own three four consoles that fight for space), but even then I wouldn’t say I play one type of game more than any other. I’m a big final fantasy fan, but I also like puzzle games and FPS. There are plenty more console games enthusiasts on here though, so I’ll be sticking to reviewing tabletop games. I grew up with a culture of playing board games with my family frequently, especially Hero Quest with my dad. Whenever we have a social gathering, which is usually every other weekend, we inevitably play at least one board game. Then there’s the making of things. My current list of enthusiasms includes crochet, embroidery, clothes making and cosplay, bags, leather work, some jewellry, plushies of all shapes and sizes and some other random bits and pieces. You can read all about my nerd-craft in my blog and if you’re interested and willing to part with some cash, I do take commissions on certain things. If you can think it, I can probably make it out of something - just ask!
