About
My grandfather got me my first console; it was an NES. I fell in love with RPG's thanks to FF7 in highschool. My husband introduced me to manga and anime in college; it all went downhill from there. You can pry my '95 Mustang GT convertible (with the Windsor 5.0) out of my cold, dead hands. I like a broad variety of game types, but most FPS's give me simulation sickness, which blows. I was inspired to create game based hats after seeing a Neko hat from some con pictures. I figured I could do much cooler job.

Finished working on more of the snowglobes from New Vegas. I almost have the entire set completed Ė currently having technical difficulties with The Strip.

If this isnít a labor of love, I donít know what is. I had a goal: to reproduce the Fallout: New Vegas snow globes in real life. I went into this completely blind, having to develop my own methods and figure out my materials. And there was failure. My god was there failure. Some of you may remember my initial giddy post well over a year ago. I thought it was ready; things really seemed to be coming together. I was wrong, my god was I wrong. First I had ink issues. Then I had material problems. Then I had production issues. Then I had sealant issues. Nothing says failure like a cardboard box full of dud snow globes. But thatís all behind me now. No more running ink. No more warped pieces. No more free floating innards. Victory is mine.

May I present the Good Springs and Mormon Fort snow globes from Fallout: New Vegas.

Finally figured out how to make a hoodie, so I went ahead and made a White Mage Capelet. I think it turned out pretty cool in the end. ^_^

Iíve decided to break away from yarn for a little bit and try my hand at tshirt designs. I think they turned out pretty well for a person who hasnít drawn for a few years. The only problem is Photoshop put a bunch of artifacts around some of the pictures even thought I told it not to. Thank you Adobe for being so "useful."

These are currently available for sale at RedBubble if you are interested in purchasing one. Artifact free of course.

It's been in the works since February, but I finally have it finished. This is the Pac Man scarf that I basically made 4 versions of in 1 day and figured out which one I liked the best. Yes, I ate my Wheaties that day because I usually can't make 4 scarves in 1 day without feeling like hell on the next. The original versions didn't have the ghosts on them and just had Pac Man, the power pellets, and the cherries in different places on each version. I thought the scarf looked fine without the ghosts so they were added last minute under protest. My favorite parts about this scarf are how it has the look of part of the level with the blue at the top and bottom and the cherries at the end. I really like how the cherries turned out, especially since they give a 3D effect without looking too weird. And now, on to my next project.

Did it feel like your New Vegas collector's edition was missing something?

I mean the platinum chip was cool and all, but put it on your desk or shelf and it doesn't scream Fallout.

This was a new medium for me and I failed more times than I would have liked. I've got to make at least one more; I owe the man who ripped the graphics for me a "Test Site" Snow Globe. If there's demand, I might make some more, but this one is destined for my husbands workplace office.
