WIP Wednesday: Jafar (3)

My fabric finally arrived this week! However, I had company come this week, which ate into my construction time a lot. Like 4 days without sewing. :(

But I have almost completed the main robe. I was hoping to get it done over the weekend, but I didn't quite get that far. I just need to add the belt and then this piece will be done.

I notice it's looking very black right now, but once I add the belt and the sleeves of the undershirt, there should be a lot more contrast.

Sunday Afternoon Tea (2)

Sunday Afternoon Tea is a new feature I'm bringing it where I basically chat with you readers about my week. What I've been up to, what I've been reading, what I've been playing, my favourite things around the internet that week and so in. So here's my first try at it!


COSPLAY CONSTRUCTION (again). Well, it actually had to be paused because I had company Thursday-Saturday, then more Saturday night to this morning. Which means that my sewing room gets converting into a guest bedroom and is unavailable. But pretty much immediately after our guests left this morning, I had it converted back. 

Plus my fabric from Joann's FINALLY arrived. I ordered it on August 20 and it didn't arrive until September 2. Not that I could get it until September 3 because they tried to deliver while I was at work and then would not let me pick it up until the day after. Which was the day my company was arriving, so no sewing room anyway (grumble).


I'm still reading You've Never Weird on the Internet (almost) by Felicia Day. I also got a couple books on millinery from the library.


Heathstone. I just started playing ranked on my warlock. Also, I'm planning to try Might & Magic Heroes Online, since Heroes 3 is my favourite game ever and my cousin (who introduced me to Heroes 3 in the first place when we were kids) recommended this browser-based game.

WIP Wednesday: Jafar (2)

So I am STILL waiting for my fabric to arrive that I ordered from Joann's. Well, I think they tried to deliver today while I was at work, so I have to wait until tomorrow to pick it up at the post office (stupid having a job).

I have gotten a fair bit of work done on my staff though. Last night I put on the 1st layer of paper mache. However, I have company coming, which means the sewing room is transformed into a guest room, so no work tonight (cleaning), Thursday or Friday. Hoping to get the sewing room put back together by Saturday and do a lot over the long weekend.

Here's the staff so far. It's a bit hard to tell what;s going on with all the colours from the grocery flyer I used for the paper Mache.
