New Costume!

Italy is that doofus in the middle.
I decided at the last minute to swap out one of my costumes this year. I was originally going to go as Horo, from Spice and Wolf, but now I'm going as Italy from Hetalia!
I'm holding my other costumes close to the vest at the moment, as one of them I'm entering in the costume contest and the other... well, its done and I don't have any pictures. so there.

Helpful Creatures

In the course of any project, I have creatures that want to help. Normally, they are my cats; small and easily removed.

Cat helps with laundry!
Cat helps with ironing!
However, I have been recently plagued with a new round of less.. removable obstacles.

Helpful dogs.

I have pants! They actually fit! and they are ridiculously poofy, and I haven't even let out the pleats yet.

I had forgotten a) how long it takes to gather something and b) how annoying it is to pick out a machine-baste. Pics to follow, after I finish picking out that baste and installing the buttons.
