He’s No Good to Me Dead :: Boba Fett Winter Jacket

He’s No Good to Me Dead :: Boba Fett Winter Jacket

Remember last year when I made Louis a winter jacket that looked like Poe Dameron's rebel pilot suit?  Well this year, I though we needed to stick with the Star Wars theme again and he's got a brand new Boba Fett jacket!  And I freaking love it. Fun fact: Boba is one...

Rebel, Rebel | Free Star Wars Cut Files!

Do you ever run into a creative block?  I do for sure.  And it’s A FREAKING BUMMER when it happens.  Like, life altering.  When I want to make something but can’t figure out what to make, it’s straight up depressing.

I went through it with these fabrics from RP Custom Fabrics.  They’re gorgeous and I wanted to do them justice.  It basically destroyed my sewjo….and then a lightbulb went off.  Star Wars.  The answer is Star Wars.  (In reality, the answer is always Star Wars.)

The Force Awakens | Cute Kid Edition

My sister was planning a visit with her two babies and I COULD NOT resist making them coordinating outfits.  It just needed to happen.  And is there seriously a better trio of characters to turn them into than the newest heroes from the Star Wars Universe?  I seriously had so much fun making these outfits.

Like always, I wanted to make sure the clothes were wearable after the fact…but still a form of cosplay.  It’s my “everyday cosplay” style that i love to put Louis in.  And I LOVE how they turned out!

Thank you for blessing us with all of your talents, Carrie Fisher.

May the Force be with you, Princess.

Thirty-One and Still a Nerdy One…

Today is my 31st birthday!  Whoop whoop! I know some women hate turning another year older.  And admitting their real age.  But honestly, I have no issues with it.  I am who I am.  We can't stop Father Time, so we might as well party on with him! Though, I'll admit...

Ky-Lou Ren :: Crafting Con

One of my favorite discoveries was a group called "Crafting Con".  Which consists of (mostly) women who are incredibly talented in sewing/creating AND are huge fangirls of all the nerdy things that I love.  It's the best. Along with Crafting Con comes a friendly...

Steel City Comic Con 2016

My Momma's Christmas gift to Bennett this year was tickets to the Steel City Comic Con.  Somehow, in all of our epic nerdiness, this family has never attended a Comic Con before.  I'm so glad that Mom sent us there!  It was SO MUCH FUN. We didn't know exactly what to...
