 The main body of the Watson sweater is almost done, actually it would be done if I wasn't a huge idiot and hadn't forgotten to change to a smaller size needle for the ribbing on the neck. *headdesk* but still  it's just the ribbing and  it's wearable as a vest. (I'll try to get the sleeves done by thyen but I doubt I can knit them up that fast) But anyway the sweater fits perfectly and is dead on for what i wanted it to look like. Yay! I'm holding off on pictures until i finish the neck. but... Watson will be coming to Timegate! Oh I've also  just bought a cane for the costume as well. I just need to modify the jacket and find some manlier blue jeans, hopefully I can get going on that this Tuesday.

 Utah Amy is finished, I found shoes  this past week that look pretty close to hers (I really didn't want to spend the 89-110 dollars on the real ones) I just need to find a nail polish  that's close to what she is wearing in the episode. It'll be something very cheap since it's not a color I would ever wear. I'd really like to take the costume over to the park near by and get some more photo's if my Mom is game to be my photographer again

real life news:

I don't think I've mentioned it here but many of you are on face book so you know I cut all of my hair off! Yes I did, I'm now sporting a pixie cut similar to Natalie Portman's or Emma Watson's. It's taking some getting used to but you can't beat it for ease of styling! it really is wash and go!  My birthday was nice I spent it with my family, got my nails done (first time ever)  and we went out for dinner.

Um that's it, hopefully I'll be posting some pictures very very soon of a nearly completed Watson Sweater!

Yay! I'm very excited to see your Watson at TG.

What color was Amy's polish? Wasn't really paying attention, got an impression of a creamy pearly color, possibly with a hint of green? The Dollar Tree has some good polish, right now the one near me has 2 packs of Sally Hansen Nail Prisms, some are pearlescent with a second color packaged along with them, and it's a good sturdy polish. Can't beat two for a buck. They had some nice greens too, polish is easy to mix if you need to alter it a bit.

Bet your pixie cut looks great! Wish I was brave enough to try it.

it's a light yellow/gold metallic (I think), I need to re-watch the episodes there is a good shot of it when she's opening the letter from the Doctor. I'll try the Dollar tree for sure (love that store).
I'm so excited about Timegate so many of my favorite people from Dragon*con will be there this year.

Aww, I miss Timegate. I guess I'll be going to Chicago Tardis instead, but there seemed like twice as many cons in and around Atlanta.
