We are attending on Saturday, Sheldon decided we are going by train where we will engage in a game or two of 'Mystic Warlords of Ka'a' and a few rounds of 'Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock'. xD I didn't think I would be this excited but as it's got nearer I'm even more excited!! hehe

No problems. I live 10 minutes away from the event so I don't even need to decide what day I'll go myself until the morning. :P

thanks dan-dan, just waiting for other bits to arrive.

Teacups - that's too cool! communicate nearer time. Feels weird ordering everything and only having a couple of small bits to edit. I think it's more stressful..

New outfit for Expo (Posted 19th May 2013)

Cardigan dyed and sharpied the buttons black. 'the lunar excitation' Shamy's first date/meet.

3 NEW OUTFITS (Posted 7th April 2013)

I have 3 new outifts :D
cardigans need a little editing but yyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Taking over a family members kitchen this week - sneakily ;) for Amy's lab xD oh and taking off my bathroom door to take with me.

Cardigans.. (Posted 29th March 2013)

I'm now thinking I will never get any decent cardigans for Amy.
There are three I REALLY want to get, but even the basic ones I can't find anything close OR they are £50 from America. A very kind person offered to knit me some, but I'm not sure I can let them do that. We will see. IT would be worth the money - if I had that much.

For now, I have ordered a similar to a certain episode... She uses it in a few but one in particular. I will need to paint extra lines on it. I was informed that it should be ok as long as it's only lines and not thick patches of paint. Fingers crossed. I have another idea if not. There is a shirt I like for the same outfit - it's an auction on ebay so have to wait a few days. I just hope I remember to go and bid.

EDIT: have ordered lots and lots of bits, some to edit, some are good as they are. excited.

Also..... (Posted 29th March 2013)

Digging the Shamy Cosplay (Posted 3rd December 2012)

http://www.facebook.com/DiggingTheShamy

Just making a note of our page. A place for us to share news and photos of our Sheldon and Amy cosplays :) Expect Shamy with other tBBT characters too xD

Bring on 2013!

the bag.. (Posted 22nd November 2012)

photos nothing like the colour [not on my screen anyway]
I used open ended zips which are a little frustrating to get the zippers onto.

the clips didn't arrive yet and doesn't look like they are going to, fingers crossed as I really want to add them to the side pockets.

yay.. (Posted 22nd November 2012)

I actualyl made something for the costumes hehe.
Made Sheldon's bag. I used a guitar strap which i cut and sewed though it's a lot darker than it looked on ebay, but it's ok because we couldn't match up the fabric anyway. It's as near as we could get. the clip bits didn't arrive yet so I can't do the straps on the side pockets :(

everything else arrived. We bought 2 watches in the end so we could have a dark face and brown strap. We had to mix and match.

My partner had his mighty big Sheldon style hair cut. :D Apart from grooming stuff like make up, cutting and shaving hair, cutting off bangles that have been on wrist for years; and the printing of tickets and such; we are done!

1 million (Posted 10th November 2012)

AMY: remember bag

Ordered;
Arrived/Got; Hair clip. Glasses. Cardigan. Skirt. Tights. Shoes.

SHELDON:
To get; Shoes. Watch.
Ordered; LS T-shirt. Socks.
Arrived/Got; T-shirt. Trousers.

Went to shops and got annoyed on thursday, however i did get tights and all the stuff I had ordered had arrived when we got in. Partner orering his shoes. and ordered a couple more bits like sheldon's socks [to match amy's cardigan - awwwww]. searching for a watch we like. could always spend £250 on an exact like one he wears ..... *thinks* a few designs to choose from so don't think it will be that one. hehe. not yet anyway.
I can't get a purple long sleeve t-shirt [in time] and it's driving me nuts so I was going to get fabric or get two normal t-shirts and use a body to make sleeves. But instead we saw an episode on friday and I was reminded that he does wear the robot t-shirt [we are going with] with a blue long sleeved t-shirt as well as purple. [I know, I know he wears millions of different colours so it's alright anyway. Now to get cheesed off with amy's shirt and t-shirt...........]

notes of orders (Posted 7th November 2012)

I've ordered a lot of bits and hoping to get to a shop for the rest of it. Pondering over Sheldon's shoes though. I have found a pair that's very close (need to change laces) to a pair he wears, however they are £40 and I even though it IS Sheldon, my partner isn't sure we can justify it, especially when we can just get some canvas ones from primark.. [that's me trying to get myself to be sensible.

Anyway..............

AMY: remember bag
To get; Shirt. T-shirt. Tights.
Ordered; Shoes.
Arrived/Got; Hair clip. Glasses. Cardigan. Skirt.

SHELDON:
To get; Shoes. Watch. LS T-shirt. Socks.
Ordered; T-shirt. Trousers.
Arrived/Got;

As you can see I'm not very far with Sheldon, I have been searching and I know I don't have time to be picky, which is worse because I need to not impulse buy but be sensible and not too picky which is really flippin' difficult.. actually it's not that bad really because it's not very easy to find anything too accruate/or that can be adapted.

Amy so far (Posted 3rd November 2012)

Glasses (which I thought would be a bit larger but i like them anyway) and Cardigan arrived.
Did a quick try on hehe. I couldn't wait. xD
I used a random clip and shirt for photo and will be cutting my hair. Remember Tights.

I need; shoes, skirt, shirt, t-shirt and clip.
