Dog Days

I’m looking after the two bichon frise boys again. They are so ridiculously adorable. People stop in the street to pet them, or just stare and grin. You can’t help it, they’ve got these happy little faces that spread joy wherever they go.


Made some wraith eyes for Newcastle branch of Fools and Heroes this morning. We do a lot of night events up here, so glowing red wraiths eyes are a must.

Symbols and Sympathy

Bit hot out, ain’t it? I don’t think I’ve managed a convocation with anyone in the past three days that hasn’t included some reference to the weather. I don’t have much to show you on the craft front. I’m still in the middle of a few big projects and catching up on bits and bobs. I did knock up a medallion for my dwarf character in Fools and Heroes that might fit the bill.

Black Robes

Hello boys and girls!

Finished off a snazzy black robe for a friend. He wanted over-the-top Starwars style eeeevil robes, with a massive hood and plenty of secret pockets. Job done. They are fully lined, with a lovely weighty main fabric. There are shit loads of secret pockets, but I can’t really show you them, being as they are secret. Did I mention how much I dislike making fiddly little secret pockets?

I did enjoy making some cute little frog fasteners for them though. Well, I had to add some fancy!


Leather Pouches

I don’t have much to show off of late. I have been making things, but they’re either things I can’t show until they’ve been used or projects that aren’t finished yet. I’m getting frustrated with all the half finished bits and pieces I have lying around, and the little project I do have to show you was my antidote to that.

Codpiece ahoy

Time for a bit of silliness. There’s a lovely chap called Ron at Fools and Heroes who’s been joking for a while about getting a codpiece for his character, something over the top, verging on ridiculous, yet still in-keeping with the time period and setting. Well, that sounded like an interesting design challenge to me (and a good excuse to make a giant padded willy)
