Brianna Tries Bullet Journaling

Having too many things to juggle and very little time can be extremely frustrating, and I have tried various planners, organizational apps, and whiteboard methods to avoid the spiraling organizational crisis that can often occur. I spent a lot of time switching back and forth between digital and analog, wondering if I would ever find something that works. It wasn’t until I discovered bullet journaling – a customizable organization method using a physical notebook – that I realized how important it is to match your work style with how you organize yourself.

Toph Beifong Cosplay – Update #2

This is where the fun (and hair pulling) began! With this update, I dove into hours of pinning and altering of the top in order to keep this cosplay as realistic as possible. I knew going in that this was going to be the case, but I am always up for a challenge – that is how you get better!

Toph Beifong Cosplay – Update #1

Finally, the Toph is back! It took us a bit to relax our high working hours and get settled into our new place. I am quite excited to pick this cosplay back up again and wear it to Denver Comicon. My overall goal for this cosplay is to wear it to Children’s Hospitals when we finish our “Avitar: The Last Airbender Series”.

Building the Studio

At last, the Order has a proper work studio that is not a third bedroom of an apartment! We are extremely lucky to have found a place with an attached, two-car garage, which has given us enough space for a glorious amount of sawdust, and several cosplays in the works. And of course, Kaycee, the Loredog, gets to hang out and guard against the various bunnies and mice when the door is open.
