Happy Things #16

Happy happy happy!

First thing on my happy list is the progress on my Legolas cosplay! I just got this amazing green suede coat/dress from a vintage seller on Etsy. I'm going to alter it to become Legolas' tunic!

I also received my custom made leather bracers. These have the same pattern that are on Legolas' and are designed to fit my tiny wrists. The seller RenManLeather did an amazing job. I could have never made something as beautiful as these. I also have the cloak, leggings and bow, but I will save those for a later post :)

Another fun project I worked on is a Princess Peach crown! As of now, I only have the crown, pendant, and gloves, but soon I hope to buy a pattern and fabric to make her dress. I also took pictures of how to make this crown. It was really easy!! So I would like to post a tutorial on that soon.

And I haven't forgotten about the giveaway I promised! I finished the green and red Yoshi eggs, but still need to paint the blue one.

Looks like I was having a detailed discussion about Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I love this game!!!

Here is my dream address if you'd like to see my town! My flowers are out of control, but the rest is pretty cool :)

Pixie loves to play Animal Crossing, too!

And when I'm not on my Nintendo 3DS, I am probably playing EverQuest 2. I can't believe SOE Live is in 3 weeks!!! I can't wait to hang out with my guild members :)

This was a super fun cut and color I did a few weeks ago at my salon. This kid rocks!

This may have been one of my favorite outfits of the summer so far. It was super comfy and had just the right amount of flair. And you can see Pixie taking a love bite out of my phone, too!

Speaking of Pixie... here she is being cute in a sack!!

And finally.. here I am feeling happy by the pool. I never ever ever spend time outside.. which I am totally fine with.. but for some reason I decided to put my toes in the other day and now I am hooked! I sat outside again and actually got a little color on my legs. I take skin care seriously so I always wear a hat and sunscreen (and you should, too).. but it's been fun being the super pale, tattooed girl amongst the uber tan beach bods at the pool... hahaha .. Maybe one day I will be brave and actually get in it. :)

Happy Summer everyone!


Do you have any fun summer hobbies?


  1. Those tights are amazing! And your picture by the pool makes me wish for summer! Its freezing on this side of the world;)

  2. Such a happy post. Love it. I CAN NOT WAIT to see your legolas costume. So exciting.

  3. Those leather bracers are amazing! And I am excited to see the rest of your costumes when they're finished.

  4. I love the cat. What happened to it's ear?

    1. It happened before I adopted her.. the vet thinks she probably had a really bad ear mite infection that went untreated. It's healthy now.. just folded over :) :)

  5. Great photos! Pixie's adorable as always, and I love that Yoshi egg! Your costume pieces are really cool... I can't wait to see the full costumes!
