The Clea cosplay saga continues! With this update I painted the bodice, constructed the cloak, and antagonized over making gloves.

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!
At long last I have found time to really get started on my Clea cosplay! The body suit was the first step and was super easy to make. It was my first time doing a garment like this, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
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”.

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.
Try our easy orzo carbonara – it’s delicious! Here by popular request is the recipe for bacon-flavored veggies from our Hearts of Iron IV video!
Many of us have done it – run down to the Halloween store at the last minute to buy something shiny that looks so great in the picture. But as soon as you get it home, out of the bag, and on yourself, it looks like a toddler stapled it together out of neon burlap. Never fear! You can still look fantastic for your costume party by using the of-the-shelf costume to make your own pattern for a custom costume that fits you perfectly!
