Young Miles Edgeworth and Franziska Von Karma

Series: Phoenix Wright
Debuted: Otakon 2011/AnimeUSA 2011
Status: Active


For Edgeworth, the theme leaned more towards London Dandy. Fran leaned towards the ‘Wild West’ to go with her riding crop. Both were based off of the ‘Young’ versions as seen in Ace Attorney: Investigations.

2011 Con Season

Con season has started for me!

Thus far we’ll be at:
Setsucon (State College, PA – January 29-30)
Katsucon (National Harbor, MD – February 18th-20th)

I will also be trying to Otakon and AnimeUSA, but I won’t know for sure until later.

My button queue is still open for up to 500 more pickups, so if you still need 1″ buttons to sell at either convention, contact me ASAP. I’m also still open for shipped orders for April and later.

The current stock includes the usual parasols, buttons, etc, but I’ll also be bringing some plastic canvas cross-stitch and hair clips. If you have a request, talk to me ASAP so I can make sure I have what you want.

I will also be giving the ‘Parents and Fandom’ panel at Setsucon.

Falcon In An Idiot

Dear Yuletide Author,

I'm one of those rare breeds of fans who likes pretty much anything: gen, romance, slash, femme, het, explicit, G-rated fluff. Pretty much the only things I hate are high school AUs and Mary Sues, which I highly doubt any Yuletider would write.

I tried to pick more general prompts because I wanted to make things easier, but I probably made things harder by not giving you anything to aim for. X) Sorry.

Easy Pumpkin Hat

X-Posted from my other blog A Family of Geeks

I whipped this up really quickly yesterday morning (about 10 minutes) because I knew Baby Geek wasn’t going to put up with wearing her costume all day.

I made this hat entirely out of scraps, but if you’re making this for an older child, you’ll need between 1/4-1/2 a yard of orange fleece (enough for 2 actually). I used scraps of jersey for the features and the leaves, but craft felt is easier to work with if you want to make proper appliques.

The truth is that if you’re making an item your child will only wear once in their life, shortcuts can make your life a lot easier. I will admit to cheating and hot gluing on the face and topper, but I will give directions on how to do it ‘properly’ for those of you looking to make a hat for a gift or that you expect to hand down.

Anyway, the easiest way to make this ‘pattern’ is to grab a hat that you know fits your child. If you don’t have one  hanging around, you will need to know the circumference of your child’s head. Fleece does have some horizontal stretch, but you don’t want kiddo swimming in the hat. The height of the hat is less of an issue if you guesstimate it, because you want a little bit up top anyway.

Anyway, the basics:

The band length should be the circumference of your kid’s head plus about 1/2 and inch for the seam allowance. You can also be a cheater like me and just glue the leaves and stem onto the top of the hat with a dollop  of hot glue. It’s really that easy.
