Pieces Of The Puzzle

I have more or less finished gathering all the pieces of my top secret project.

What you can see in the photo is glitter, pipe cleaners and clay.

The only thing I need I do actually have but it needs 'emptying' first - but I can get on with the more complicated part of the project.

Here's hoping it goes well...

(I do plan on telling you what the project is at some point, whether it goes well or not)

My Sister, The (Novice) Cosplayer

I have briefly mentioned my sister and her blog 'The Novice Cosplayer' before on this blog.

She was by my side when I cosplayed as Alice from Alice: Madness Returns where she cosplayed as another version of Alice from the same game.

Me (the aforementioned Chippy)
My sister (the aforementioned Novice Cosplayer)
Well she's cosplaying again in October and I've been roped in to helping with part of her costume this weekend... so no doubt both of us will be blogging about that little adventure some time soon. (Of course this means my top secret project will have to be hidden away this weekend).

Go and check out her blog using the link at the top of this post to see some of her other cosplays (I have only cosplayed the once).

Til next week...

Creative Blogging

I haven't been all that creative this week. I did a little bit of sewing earlier in the week, but the RSI in my wrist flared up again...

And the only other creative things I've been up to have been in preparation for my top secret project.

So given that I shared some of my favourite creative YouTubers the other week I thought I'd share some of my favourite creative blogs this week.

Awesome Alt Art


Design Fetish

Gurney Journey

Muddy Colors

I could probably go on and on and on... but there's a lot to see on the blogs I've already mentioned, so I'll leave it at just five for now.

Til next week...

Top Secret Project

 Top Secret

I have a project in the early stages...

...that I really want to tell you about but it is going to be for my sister and I don't want her to know about it ahead of time.

I don't even want to hint about it because I don't want her to guess. The only thing I will say is that it is Halloween related (she has a thing about Halloween).

It is probably going to involve clay... and glitter - how's that for vague?

But I will take photos as I (attempt to) make it. And if all goes well I can reveal the project in November after her birthday.

If  progress goes a little slow you'll have to wait until after Christmas.

And if it goes hideously then you may never get to see it... depends whether I want to share a catastrophe with you or not.
