It’s been a little over a month since my last post. Things have been busy, busy, busy and I just didn’t have time to blog. Along with my normal workload, I have been making our costumes for the Halloween party, which is tonight. I made the masks and armor using pepakura, which is essentially paper craft. You print out the desired item on cardstock, cut it out, fold it and glue it together. It is time consuming but such fun! And the costumes came out awesome. I cannot wait to post pictures. I’m purposely not divulging what our costumes are. The husband wants to keep it hush hush until the party. But pictures will be posted in the coming days!

Totally understandable that you haven’t had the time to blog – it’s a super busy time of the year for most people! 🙂 Especially with Halloween this week. That paper is pretty nifty looking, I must say, I’ve never heard of it before but I was just snooping through the web site’s gallery. It looks like a lot of fun!

Thankfully I get to enjoy you on Facebook so I don’t feel deprived during your blogging breaks. 😛
I was thinking of making shoulder armor with a pepakura technique — would that be horribly difficult? My goal is to cosplay Chromie at London Comic Con in May… am I setting myself up for disappointment here, Mandakins?! 😀
