What a difference six years makes! (Swipe to see both) Gosh it has been a JOURNEY. It’s been fun though. I’ve offered unique leather accessories to the Alberta market for six years now. The economy has changed over those years, people, faces, fans, the Expos themselves, all changed. Yet, you guys still support my work and I’m still able to come back every year. Thank you. Many thanks to maybe my earliest supporter, my first cheerleader who I will always be grateful to, Emily! Thank you again for being my first booth buddy who rocks an amazing Boromir. You are wonderful. Thank you for all your hard work. The vintage set up photo appeared in memories and I had to do the shout out. There’s still changes to come, new product is being made this summer, but friends, clients.... thank you.
I have slept for what feels like two days straight! I can’t thank everyone enough for coming by over the weekend to support me and commissioning me for projects. You are the reasons I keep coming back! Your support allows me to keep doing this wonderful craft! I feel closer than ever to the #cosplay community and I feel renewed vigour for my craft. Buuuuut I’m tired AF and I’ve been sleeping for I swear the last two days in order to feel human again after all the excitement. Soon though! I will be opening commissions again and I can’t wait to discuss all your wonderful ideas!
So Cassandra aka @thorbjc MADE this Legend of the Seeker #cosplay all on yer own! She airbrushed the leather and assembled it with over 250 grommets for the lacing! colour me TOTALLY impressed! And I’m always here to brag about ladies kicking butt in the leather and armour category!!!
Had the pleasure of joining two great friends in a photo op with Sean Astin today! I’m not over how amazing they looked as an elf archer and #Aragorn!@strengthandhonorcosplay is wearing a pair of my tooled #Aragorn#leather#vambraces and he looked phenomenal! Thank you for letting me hang with you guys!!
Finally got the pleasure of seeing @nikolecosplays family wearing their full #Legolas and #tauriel#cosplays that I created accessories for. They looked AMAZING. Outstanding details and perfect props by @nikolecosplays and #bracers and #belt by me. These pieces turned out AMAZING. thank you for coming by and letting me snap some photos! It was an honour!
