Time to get creative!

It's been a long time since I've done anything creative, due to school and travelling, but now it's time for some action! I have a lot planned for the next two months, and I really hope I'll get it all done. On my to do list:


- Two Magicka robes for my boyfriend and his brother.
- Four steampunky outfits for my mom, sister, best friend, and myself, for the Elf Fantasy Fair in September.
- Loads of accessories to go with those four last outfits, because with steampunk you can never have too many of those!
- When those are done: a cosplay outfit for FACTS in October. Probably some outfit from Erza (the coolest character from the anime Fairy Tail, in my opinion). I really like the maid outfit she wore once, but I'm afraid I'll look too slutty ("What? Cosplay, too slutty? No such thing!"), or her Lightning Empress armour. Choices, choices...


I also ordered a book online on how to make medieval clothing. It's supposed to be really good and I look forward to finally having it in my collection, because my sewing skills aren't all that yet. I took some lessons with my mother a while back, but we only learned some basic stuff. And I'd really like to make some more special and unique items.


In between: working on my thesis. There's not that much work left writing-wise, but it still has to be done, and revised ten times until my perfectionist urges are satisfied.


So, it looks like it will be a busy summer. Which is lovely, because three months of vacation is just too much for me. I need a lot of distractions to keep my mind occupied, until school starts again, and even then I'll keep on sewing and crafting and tinkering, because I just love it too much!
