Hodge Podge

Hey, readers! This is going to be a regular hodge-podge of a post. I've been wanting to update for a while, but life's busy!  So here's what's been happening during the last couple months!

In April, my husband and I did a drawing challenge together-- we each drew the same character (DC Comics'  Supergirl), and we switched off now and then to add to/adjust/correct each other's drawing. Here are our results :

Handsomeface drew the top image, I drew the bottom.

This was my first time using Copic markers, and it was a lot of fun. I like the bold colors and crisp shading. I did get pretty lazy on the background, but I think the rest turned out pretty well!

My next project was a little stuffed bunny made to match my sweet daughter's first birthday dress (which you can read about here, if you'd like).  She was super curious about it the whole time I worked on it, and as soon as I finally finished and gave it to her, it became an instant favorite!

Aren't they just adorable?

My next big project was another husband-inspired one. At the beginning of May, Handsomeface mentioned that he wanted to come up with a quick and easy costume to wear for Free Comic Book Day. We started talking about his, and I decided I wanted one too! I decided on Rey from  Star Wars : The Force Awakens. My husband was skeptical at first, but I was determined. It's a lot easier than it looks-- Sometime soon I want to do a tutorial post on how I put it together, but as I don't have any progress shots, I need to draw up a few diagrams first. For now, here's the finished project! I helped a little with Handsomeface's costume too, fitting the pants, whipping the scarf together, and coming up with a way to make a mask fit over his glasses. There may eventually be a tutorial about that last one, too.

Cosplay is so much fun!

At the beginning of June, I made a tunic top for Dollbaby using a pattern from the blog  Smashed Peas and Carrots. I modified it quite a bit to showcase a few different fabrics, and to make it reversible. It turned out a bit big, but I'm pleased with it. Of course, Dollbaby looks mind-blowingly cute in it, too.


Sittin' pretty!

Finally, I've been working on building inventory for my business, Rhymes with Finesse  Studios. I've been doing mostly jewelry, and have a few plushies lined up. If you'd like to see what I sell, please follow the link above! Here's a quick sample of what I offer.

To wrap up, I'll leave you with a picture of a current work in progress. I hope you enjoyed the update! Thanks for reading!

See you next time!
