I have really important graduate school tests to take over the summer, so my goal with my new project is to provide me something I can work on in my downtime at night after writing all day. My project would double as my Halloween costume, so it has to be fun. I decided on Anna’s Coronation gown from Frozen since I love the movie, ...

Hello Everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates but life has been crazy for me!

As you can see from my homepage, in October 2010 I was selected by the Fashion Group International of Boston to be a part of their Launch show. The committee selected 5 designers from the New England area that showed great potential and paired them up with 5 awesome local photographers. Each of the designers had their designs photographed and showcased at two fashion shows during Boston Fashion Week.

Hi All,

I’m planning on making Kahlan Amnell’s costumes from the television series “Legend of the Seeker” later on this summer. I’ve been researching the costumes for about 6 months now, and I decided to document my findings for others to reference.

I’m going to brea...
