For my son’s first birthday, we picked Yoshi as the theme after his favorite plush toy. After lots of google and pinterest surfing, I found a fabulous little party hat that I could make myself for all the attendees. Myself and 2 AMAZING friends of mine spent an evening putting together about 30 of these:
And they were absolutely adorable! If you have a choice, I probably would’ve set up a craft table at the party and let the kids make it themselves. But if you’re going to make them in advance, a couple friends and an assembly line is the way to go.
Ok folks, it’s that time of year again. Time to look ahead and set some goals for the year 2014. It’s probably common knowledge that resolutions tend to be lofty and short-lived. I’d like to think that one day I can stop contributing to that stereotype, lol. What’s your plan? Here’s mine…
I have always loved the useful woman in movies and TV. The damsel in distress gets on my nerves. If you’re just gonna stand there and scream when the dragon shows up, stay home. Give me the chick who doesn’t just look great, she’s ready to grab the nearest sword and jump right in the fight! I’ve never been the princess-type, but there are a few who have earned my respect. I declare this the Year of the Princess. My cosplay hopes for the year:
My musical mind is rusty, and as a result, arrangements are taking forever to finish. I have got to get my edge back. Luckily it’s like riding a bike. I just need to spend more time doing it and things will all come back to me. So my goal for the year is one arrangement per week. I would do two, but that’s not really reasonable when I run 3 other websites. Gotta know your limits. Perhaps, by the end of 2014 I will be efficient enough to churn out 2 per week, but we’ll see.
So what are your geek resolutions this year? Attend more cons? Design an epic prop? Complete a collection? Tell me about it!
I’m hard at work trying to finish my Sindel cosplay. Life has thrown a speed bump in my way this week, but I’m determined to have it done in time for ACCC next weekend. Check out my progress over the last couple of months.
I’ll be posting more pictures soon. I think that if I dedicate the weekend to it, I can be finished by Monday! A lot of elastic will be harmed in the completion of this cosplay. 🙂
