Happy fall, everyone!

This is a great, easy craft to instantly brighten a room for Halloween. I’m sure kids will have fun helping to create the chain! And it’s not too spooky either :)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Download and print the free pattern template. I recommend printing at least 2-3 copies of all the colors.
  2. Trim the white edges off of the paper
  3. Using a ruler, measure 2″ inch strips holding the paper horizontally, and cut.
  4. To assemble, loop one strand through the loop and tape closed. Then repeat! You can make your chain as long or short as you like. I like to alternate my colors.

I hope you have fun if you make this!! Do you have any go-to

Have any of you played Mario Odyssey?? I sadly don’t have a Switch (or plan on purchasing one) but that doesn’t stop me from loving all of Peach’s new outfits! One of my favorites is her cute travel skirt/blouse/hat combo, which of course I had to make :)

I think I had the most fun eating these delicious Knead Donuts!

This costume is mostly a closet cosplay, but details are below! I had all the fabric I needed for the skirt and scarf already, which made the idea of this costume appeal to me all the more.

COSTUME DETAILS:

HAT
I bought this hat on amazon and sewed some leftover pink belt fabric as trim.

BLOUSE
I bought this blouse.

SUNNIES
here!

SCARF
I sewed this by creating a really long rectangular shape with angled edges. I dipped the end of a pencil in white fabric paint to create the polka dot pattern.

BELT GEM
I 3d printed the gem and painted it pink. I added glitter into the clear top coat, and added white shading on the edges for a bit of a cartoon look. It just pins onto the skirt.

SKIRT
I used my favorite skirt pattern, Simplicity 1369 as the base but added in 2 extra panels for volume. The waistband is in a contrasting color and there’s a petticoat underneath to make the volume show.

SHOES
These aren’t entirely accurate to what Peach wears (she wears white heels), but they’re my go-to comfy and foot-friendly Clark’s wedges :)

WIG
This is my third Peach wig! :) I used Luthien Classic from Arda in Light Blonde as my base. The bangs were sectioned into three parts to mimic her front and 2 side pieces. The front of the bangs were teased up and smoothed down, cut to shape into a point. Her bangs are almost heart-shaped, so I tried to keep that in mind. The two side pieces were curved towards her head and also made into points. I used lots of hairspray to keep them all together!

GOLDEN MUSHROOM
This is my original mushroom from years ago, and I made a tutorial!

I can’t wait to make other Peach outfits from Mario Odyssey. Which of her new looks is your favorite?

Last week I had a mini Disney vacation, and visited Magic Kingdom and Epcot! I thought I’d share a more personal post, since I’ve been lacking in those. I wanted to feature highlights of each park, starting with Magic Kingdom!

First off, I had to wear the perfect outfit. Am I really a blogger if I didn’t? :P I went with a Rapunzel theme after seeing this dress.

OUTFIT DETAILS:
Ears: Best Day Ever Ears Co.
Tangled Dress: Her Universe @ Hot Topic

I also went on a hunt for the magical #PurpleWall, and snagged a few outfit photos there. I have to say, this is my favorite Disney wall I saw on my entire trip!

We ate a lot of snacks, and Skowalz managed to take a “BITE” series of photos…and of course, because I wanted as many instagram-worthy photos, I had to try the Dole Whip (which was surprisingly really tasty!)

My 2 favorite rides at Magic Kingdom are Thunder Mountain and the Teacups :) I got to ride both! I really wanted to try out the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster, but the wait was too long :( Next time, hopefully…

I have also done Splash Mountain and Space Mountain in previous visits, but I am terrified of both. I just don’t feel safe! And after riding Space Mountain last year, I was extremely stressed and anxious. I can’t be the only one scared to ride these, right?? Which rides are your favorite?

Here’s a costume that I forgot I made…Cruiser DVa! I made her last year right when she was announced, for the Overwatch anniversary event. These photos were all shot at Connecticon 2017 by Tactful Cactus Photo.

COSTUME DETAILS:

TOP
I think this pattern from Butterick was MADE for Cruiser DVa…or DVa was based on this pattern :) I used a checkered cotton that I actually dyed a little darker using RIT dye. I also got lazy and didn’t create buttonholes for the top – the whole thing velcros together which is a little embarrassing, but the truth.

JEANS
These are actually jeggings! Much comfier to wear at a con all day than jeans.

HEADPHONES
I bought these headphones as a base, and cut the cord off. I painted them with teal paint and added some silver to the center.

HEADBAND
This was a super simple, long rectangle that I sewed up. I included wire in this so when it twists on top of my head, it stands up.

WIG
Remember how I said I hate ponytail wigs? Still true. I bought a Jeannie from Arda but got so frustrated with trying to style it that I gave up. The wig shown here is actually my Belle wig, which is an Arda Grace in Spanish Brown. I kept DVa’s hair in a low pony, mostly for my own sanity (:

GUN
The gun was a raw 3d print that I bought and assembled. I spray painted the whole gun silver, then used acrylics to paint the colors. I wish I had filled and sanded the edges where the gun is glued apart, though!

Happy Friday everyone! I haven’t been posting a lot these past few months, and it’s been a year since I’ve done a Friday post. And since this past week has been E3, I thought it fitting to share some of my thoughts!

I’m not a huge gamer by any means; I play a few games here and there but there are some things I’m excited about.


CYBERPUNK 2077
It’s no secret I love all thing future, space, and sci-fi…and this trailer had me DYING of excitement. I remember hearing about this game years ago but writing it off since it was apparently first announced in 2012. When I saw this again at E3 I knew I needed to play it whenever it comes out.

ASSASSIN’S CREED ODYSSEY
I admit I only play the Assassin’s Creed games to free run and explore the different locations but I LOVE that they’ve included Kassandra as a main character. I’m guilty of playing games based on characters alone and she seems pretty amazing. Not to mention the romance factor of this game, which is intriguing!

SUPER SMASH BROS
I love that they added Daisy to Super Smash (or in my case, super mash buttons since I’m terrible at it haha)!! I’m itching to cosplay her (since I’ve cosplayed both Peach & Rosalina) even if her dress is a replica of Peach’s :P I don’t play Smash often but I’m excited about the new princess. Also, can we talk about Zelda’s new outfit?? Gorgeous!

If you watched or read about E3 coverage, what games are you most excited to play?

You may not know this, but I’ve recently done a few twitch emotes for folks and I love making them! Below are samples of what I’ve created. I’ll be keeping a page of these easily found in my header here!

If you’re interested in your own emotes (or other commission), shoot me an email at kylacovert@gmail.com or leave me a comment!
