My Bio
I'm a sewing maniac, who is willing to sew just about anything (cosplay or otherwise) you could throw at me!

:star: I'm currently residing in Japan with my wonderful husband :star:
I'm not working on cosplay commissions at the moment, nor much sewing apart from small personal projects (purses and jewelry, more than anything) due to only having one (I know, right?!) sewing machine with me, and no dress forms or even room to work!

So, for the time being, I am simply existing, getting over some crippling mental health issues, and snapping pictures every chance I get.

I graduated with a BFA in Costume Production in the Spring of 2008. I had created my own costume and cosplay studio, Taeliac Studio,
way back in 2002, which I ran with my husband until we moved to Japan in fall of 2012. We specialized in custom cosplay pieces, and won numerous awards for our work throughout the US. Since moving to Japan, it is incredibly difficult to get your hands on good fabric, and until very recently, we didn't have the room for me to even consider sewing. Now that there is a bit of space (seriously, Japanese apartments are small), I have slowly dipped my toes back into making things, while juggling life, 2 cats 3 cats, mastering Japanese, and dealing with a few major health problems.

3! 3 new designs done in less than a week! Holy hell, I’m on a roll! All Japan inspired, because I’ve come to realize that there is a lot of inspiration I take for granted being here so long. So, starting with my fav things - Shintō Shrines (and of c...

Hey, just wanted to say thanks for your yukata tutorial. I wanted to make a nursing robe for a friend and I thought a yukata would be perfect because she likes Japan =). Your instructions are nice, so thank you!
