Summer in Review

Wed Sep 3, 2014, 6:13 PM
Dear Friends, Watchers, and Visitors;

Thank you all, as always, SO MUCH! Over the summer my page surpassed 50,000 views - which is rather overwhelming. I was, as expected, insanely busy this summer, so here's a run down of what projects came to fruition and which did not. 

:bulletblack: I worked through my commissions wait list (FINALLY!) and stacked up a new one for fall. 
:bulletblack: Went to a wedding and Disney 3 times!!! Once with my best friend and twice with my boyfriend and his family. 
:bulletblack: Started my Princess project: Princess tee shirts! You can see some completed in my gallery and the full plan here
:bulletblack: I made my own cosplays for the FIRST time and premiered them at the infamous DashCon as well as DragonCon. Cosplays completed were: Street Wonder Woman and Belle's Ballgown. 
:bulletblack: I also made cosplays for my boyfriend, Sean M Moreno: Gaston and Beauty's Prince/Prince Adam
:bulletblack: Made my own pirating garb for shenanigans with the aforementioned boyfriend  aka Captain Francis Drake 
:bulletblack: I wrote a Renaissance Festival show with my girlfriends and we signed a multi-year contract to perform at the Carolina Renaissance Festival! You can see our facebook page about "The Angels" here.

Just about the only thing I did not get around to on my summer itinerary was more hair tutorials... sadly I had way less time on my hands than expected. Maybe more will appear this fall. 

Here are some of the pieces I made this summer:

The Spell is Broken
SO excited about this picture and all the others I got from DragonCon this year. I'll post them all eventually, but starting one at a time here on DeviantArt. 

My Prince, my amazing boyfriend, and I had such fun walking around the Con as Belle and her Prince and were able to get a few really wonderful shots at a Disney group photo-op. 

I made both of our costumes. You can see more here on DeviantArt or at my costuming facebook page: Sarah's Stache

You can see more shots of us in costume on my personal facebook page: Sarah Durnesque. You can also check out his facebook: Sean M. Moreno

Finally finished! 3 part Prince/Beast costume for Sean Michael Moreno (aka my boyfriend) to wear to Dragon Con!

The cravat is attached to the vest and the lace "sleeves" are attached to the coat. This is to help keep him cooler than he would be with 3 full la
yers on top. The coat is blue velvet, gold brocade and satin and the vest is made of the same brocade and satin. The pants are a silky cotton with satin stripes. The pants also have back pockets.

You can see more photos on my costume facebook page, Sarah's Stache. Pictures of us at the con will probably appear on my personal facebook or his. 

On Tumblr: please reblog only from me. You do NOT have permission to repost these images anywhere! 

He'll be wearing this to go with my new ballgown!

P.S. I know his name isn't officially Adam, but it's the most recognizable address. 

[EDIT] We now have pictures from the Con!

Awesome! Thank you so much! If you wouldn't mind using my deviantart tag for that, just to create a bit more consistency with linkage the code Durnesque will get it right to my deviantart page. :)

You have an amazing talent. In a world of computers you must love the hands on aspect to your art. Great stuff.

Thank you very much! I do a fair amount of digital work too, though. Every photograph requires digital work to process, more than you might think, but I do love every aspect of what I do. :)
