A Geek on Halloween

Ah, Halloween; the day when it’s socially acceptable to cosplay. Last year I had a surprise party invite and I had to throw a costume together in a couple of hours. This isn’t as easy as it sounds as my group are very fandom oriented and the sort of costumes at the party were full Hogwarts robes, the TARDIS, Cecil from Welcome to night vale and Attack of the Titans characters. I ended up going as Princess Lea with just a baggy white t-shirt and my hair in two buns at the side of my head. It was kind of lame so this year I prepared an awesome fem-11th doctor costume using mostly my school uniform and things I would wear again. Unfortunately nobody had a party this year and now I look really geeky with a Doctor Who cosplay and nowhere to wear it. Sorry about the bad pictures, I used the camera on the front of my phone, which kind of sucks.

I'm wearing:
Tweed blazer from H&M I got on ebay for £6
Bow tie that I again got on ebay for 25p
Braces from ebay again
for 56p
My school shirt from Marks and Spencer’s
School Skirt from Tesco’s I got at the start of summer for £5
Tights from Tesco’s
Boots from Clarks
Sonic screwdriver
I stole from my brother for the night

I'm listening to:

I'm going to have to change my posting schedule so it’s every second Thursday because I literally have no free time or transport right now, which is also why the last two posts were from my room. 


  1. I loooove your costume! It's perfect! It's great that you wore a skirt rather than troussers :) Doctor Who is my favourite series and I love 11th Doctor :) Btw, what do you think of Peter Capaldi as the new doctor? I read through your previous posts and I think you have a great style.

  2. I really love doctor who too (as you probably can tell). I didn't really like peter Capaldi as much as the 11th doctor at first but he has grown on me and now is The Doctor. Thank you, I love your style and your blog!

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
