Your neighborhood Jyn is beginning a two week adventure in the mountains of Montana! I'm taking a Stratigraphic Paleobiology field class, and it's the first time I'll be taking a class in over a year since I became a PhD candidate. I'll be learning stuff directly related to my fields, #paleontology and #sedimentology. This means I probably won't have much internet access and will not be posting much while I'm gone because I'll want to focus on my work.

Anyway, have a great couple of weeks, you guys! May the force be with you 😎

It's #TutorialThursday πŸ™ƒ

I've had a lot of questions about how I made my Jyn Erso vest, and whether I do commissions. Unfortunately I do not do commissions (yet!! πŸ˜‰), but I do encourage people to try making this costume, because if I can do it, you can do it. ✊

I have created a PDF tutorial for making Jyn Erso's vest, and it's available for free! I've uploaded it to Google Docs and it is public, so if you are interested in working on Jyn's costume the vest is arguably considered the hardest part to make. This tutorial includes a supplies list and photos.

The link is in my bio! πŸ’™

Eventually I'll lay this out in blog format on a website, but for now this will do. Let's build a #JynArmy! Good luck!

I was 17 when I saw a woman dressed as Boushh at Star Wars Celebration III, and I decided that was my costume end-goal. Princess Leia is my hero, and there she was, saving Han in this bounty hunter disguise! It's been on my list for 13 years, and yet I've never had a sewing machine that could sew leather, making this a reality for me. A #Singer Heavy Duty sewing machine could finally allow me to fulfill my #cosplay dream!

Thanks to @canvascosplay and @singersewingcompany for this giveaway opportunity πŸ’™

If anyone knows who painted this awesome Boushh portrait, please let me know!

It's #MedievalMonday and the Michigan Renaissance Festival opens in just over a month! This is a costume I started making in 2005, but this photo shows my most recent build as of last year. I've never been one for dresses and feel like me when I wear it. I can't wait to be a ranger again!

Here we are from yesterday's 4th of July Parade in New Philadelphia! We had a fantastic time, and our troopers really were troopers for bearing the summer heat! 🌞

I definitely didn't buy enough snaps to finish this belt tonight. What a bummer! The dress is done though. If I can finish everything tomorrow I can troop in it this Friday! Wish me luck!

It may be a bit late, but there's this bandwagon, see, and I love Harry Potter too, guys! I first read books 1 and 2 when I was 12, and immediately became a mega-fan. I re-read the series every two or three years, and I'm currently reading The Half Blood Prince again. It feels like visiting with old friends. These photos are from HP book opening parties that the nearby Barnes and Noble would throw when I was in high school and early college. My favorite character is Mrs. Weasley, and one day I hope to #cosplay Professor Sprout. I also have a love/hate relationship with The Order of the Phoenix (one year I love reading it, the next, I have trouble focusing on it), and my favorite book is The Goblet of Fire. The series has changed my life. I don't know who I would be without this world.
Sincerely,
