Here’s a fable-like story I wrote 6 years ago for a competition. It’s a time and boredom killer, and a vocal exercise.

If I didn’t have an essay to write, I’d be throwing thread and fabric around and together, trying to create something fun to add some color to the monochrome and cold white outside my window. Sure, 40 cm deep snow is pretty, but I’m nearly blinded. Also, if I don’t create something from fabric at least once a week, my brain threatens to rot away and my hands twitch.

I do have a woolen zipper hoodie to use as lining in a jacket. Saturday! It’s important to have something to look forward to. Especially during linguistics essays…

I’m dressing up as an elf for when I go see the Hobbit movie with a few friends. The piece in gold’s part of my costume for then.

Yeah, I’m sorry for taking photos of Ego in Mirror. I hate those kinds of photos, but it was the easiest way to do it. Just this once!

And yes, I made it myself.

In honor of the soon to be released Hobbit movie, here’s a belt I made an evening two weeks ago. Of course it has the One Ring inscription. And as it’s in plastic and silver, it glitters nicely in the light.

Here’s the Prince of Dreams and, my favorite, Delirium, who’s in a temporary outfit. Ideally, she’d wear fishnet, a tutu and butterflies…

I make dolls based on Neil Gaiman’s the Endless. Here’s Destruction, without his pack on a stick, and Despair. 
Next post: Delirium & Morpheus. :)

Crocheted flower rings I made this summer. After getting the hang of it, they’re pretty quick! =)

Simple, but cheers me up.

A relatively quick (except for the horns!) Loki costume (based on the female Loki in the comics) I made for a movie marathon :p
The helmet’s still not finished. Not gotten around to that, yet…

I wanted a cape, so I made one from cheap IKEA fleece and an orange bird-clad IKEA fabric (which incidentally shares my mother’s name) that I fell for right away.

Warm, bright and fun. Adorned with buttons (which also create sleeves), four button holes for guiding a belt around the waist, and a hood that turned out too short - which means there’s room for improvement. Which is great, because I’d hate to be left without anything to create or work at!
