I loooove fall!!!  Especially Halloween!  I feel its a time when you have full licence to be dramatic and theatrical.  I love how it brings out creativity in people.  Everyone can feel ok putting together some fun costume just because it's Halloween.  Plus candy..... always candy X)

This year we are putting on another Halloween party, but out whole basement will be blacklight!  I'm sooo freaking excited.... I'm already knee-deep in the decorating process.  Last year, things got a little last minute.  So, this year, I'm taking over the basement for the whole month of October. 

We had to rip our basement carpet out in June due to flooding, so I get to have some fun with our cement floors.  Eventually we will tile done there, but it's not in our budget till Spring.  That means that I have all this free un-used space for the party!  Will post pics as things come together.

I was re-reading Sabriel for the first time the other day, and I had a sudden inspiration to do a Sabriel cosplay. Naturally I decided to see what others had done with the same idea. I stumbled across your own cosplay, and WOW - mind blown. It's superb, you included every detail and put so much effort into it, from your heart as well as from your fingers. It shows, really, and I'm in awe. You've given me so much inspiration to actually go ahead with my own cosplay now. Thank you.  - Senny

Yay!!  I'm soo glad!!  Thankyou soo much.... X)  Just as a fun tip, when you're working on your cosplay, listen to Sabriel on audiobook.  Tim Curry preforms it, and it's superb.  It really helps the time pass and sets the mood.  I had a really good time listening to it while I sewed the keys.  Hope this helps!

Your Sabriel costume is awesome! Oh how I would have loved that back in high school. Heck, I'd love it even now. The way you did the scale mail is genius. Shame I decided to learn crochet instead of knitting. Maybe it won't be too hard to learn... In any case, your version of the costume definitely seems to be the what to aim for should I ever try to make one of my own.

Thankyou soo much!! Knitting is easy to learn if you have someone to show you. I use Youtube alot to learn new stiches. I love this costume soo much. I'm glad I was able to put the time into it. I felt like if I was going to do this character, I'd really have to do everything I could to do it right. I'm glad you like it!
