I did a bunch of shopping today, both online and in stores. In this episode, I share my successes, failures, and what I’m up to tonight. Show Notes: Here’s a link to my previous “Accessory Shopping” episode from 2016.

Today’s episode is named after an old-fashioned saying because it demonstrates why that saying exists. In this episode, I talk about my creative use of an abandoned ‘alpha version’ of one of my existing costume pieces to fill a previously-unforeseen need. Show Notes: This blog post is backdated to the approximate date and time I Continue reading →

This episode was recorded live at my Toastmasters club meeting earlier today. Nobody else had volunteered to speak at today’s meeting, and I had just finished my new anime costume, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and record this. Once again, this is being uploaded completely unedited.
The bulk of my cosplay accessories are on their way to Atlanta, thanks to a very kind friend of mine! I talk about that and the progress I’ve made today. I also think out loud about what to wear to which Dragon Con events.
This year, I decided I needed to step up my ‘traveling with costumes’ game in addition to my cosplay game. This afternoon, I bought a pair of garment bags which I will try out, compare, and contrast while traveling to Dragon Con.
The good news today is that, thanks to the generosity of a friend, I get to take ALL the long dresses (and my Jedi cloak, of course) to this year’s Dragon Con! I talk briefly about which costumes I’ll be bringing, and how excited I am about Dragon Con.
At the end of a quiet day, I talk about the costume progress I made today and reply to one of my fellow DDoP podcasters’ shows. Once again, no in-depth editing or music because it’s a work night and I need to get to bed.
I didn’t set out to finish an anime costume within the month of August, but now I’m determined to do so. I talk about how that happened, the progress I’ve made, and my cosplay plans for Dragon Con. It must be almost the end of Dog Days of Podcasting, because this is my first episode Continue reading →
This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Wednesday, August 16.
