Motivation for fighting Mundane Mondays

Mondays can often be downers. It’s the beginning of yet another work week. That’s 5 whole days before you’re free, be it to craft and create or to attend the next event. But instead of letting the weight of a new week stifle my creativity or energy I’ve collected some links to use as inspiration. I’m sharing them here to give you a little Motivation for fighting Mundane Mondays.

Week of September 8, 2014

1. Do you use Pinterest to do research, gather inspiration or costume ideas? The Pragmatic Costumer brings up some very important points about doing your research and not automatically trusting the facts on the pin. I'll admit to having pinned the first picture myself. There was enough about it that didn't seem right so I pinned it to do further research. After I did the research I found out they were photoshopped pieces.

2. Klaire de Lys shared a real life Disney princess makeup for Rapunzel. One of my favorite parts of this post is that she shares how she created the light through the hair look in her pictures.

3. Diary of a Renassiance Seamstress posted about her Rococo Dorothy. She starts from where she got her inspiration, takes your through her entire process, and at the end she links to the group's presentation. I think the whole group was extremely clever!

4. I was impressed with the Diary of a Mantua Maker's 1670's 780lgown. This era is grossly under-represented.

5. Robin from In the Long Run showed how she made her Stephanie Brown Robin's Belt

6. Over the weekend I attended Salt Lake Comic Con. I am impressed with the amount a big name stars and quality of the panels from such a new Convention. Unfortunately they are feeling some growing pains and were NOT ready for the amount of people that did come. Hubby and I will be adding this Convention to our Con List. It may not be a yearly thing but we plan on going as often as we can.
Below are the pictures I took at the Convention. As usual so many costumes got away before I could get a picture.
