Jupiter Ascending

It has been a long time since I have posted mainly because I have been keeping my latest cosplay a secret. I have been quite involved with it and it is very complicated to complete. I just wanted to make sure I had something to share but it has taken time to make. I...

Aren’t You A Little Short for A Stormtrooper?

So Christmas is over and done with so time to get crafting and make some new stuff! The next MCM Comic Con in Birmingham is next march and I haven't sorted what I will go as but my eight year old son is thinking he may want to be Link. Having not played the games I'm...

Princess Leia Cosplay

MCM Comic con Birmingham has been and gone. Lots of fun was had and it was my first time taking the kids with me. My youngest, who is seven, wanted to go as a stormtrooper so I thought I would follow him as Princess Leia. I am not thin enough to carry off the slave...

Welcome to The Monster Pit

I find the odd glorious.

Pokemon Adventure and EGX

EGX at Birmingham NEC was amazing. There were so many games to see and play. I also adored the Madmax car they had set up for the game. I could just have driven the Magnum Opus home right there and then! Star Wars Battlefront made an appearance but they had a 3 hour...

Viking Nation

A little while ago I was asked by a Twitch streamer, RealBlankSpace, to make a viking plush. RealBlankSpace is leader of the gaming guild Viking Nation as well as a huge supporter of the charity Operation Supply Drop that sends game supplies to military personel...

Pokemon Adventure Part 2

I have completed my Umbreon ears and tail. They are made simply with black and yellow faux fur, which I love working with even if it does get all over the house. I always have to remind myself to fold the fur away from my stitching so that it does not get caught up....

Pokemon Adventure

Woah! Exciting times are ahead in the cosplay arena! I am due to make various costumes for events such as EGX and Comic Con. First up is EGX Birmingham being held in September. As I am primarily going to meet up with friends I thought that a full on cosplay may be a...

I Iz Squid

Travelling across the internet as you do I came across one of the most cutest undersea creatures I have seen in a long time. Opisthoteuthis adorabilis is what it may be called as it is very adorable. This is what the scientist who discovered it, Stephanie Bush at the...

Beginnings of the Monster Pit

Why is this little blog called the Monster Pit you may ask, and no it hasn't got anything to do with Lady Gaga. Little monsters (apart from the name I call my children) are the things that I love to create. Nearly two years ago now I was eagerly awaiting a game called...

Master Splinter Cosplay

So for my next cosplay adventure I made a Master Splinter costume, the lovely Senpai from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Although I could have gone with a face mask similar to the Rocket Raccoon one, I wanted to make the recent comic version of the character and so...

Rocket Raccoon Cosplay

After cutting my cosplay teeth as Ellen Ripley at Rezzed 2014, I felt ready to attempt another. My choice was Rocket Raccoon for the MCM Comic Con at Birmingham 2014. Funnily enough I hadn’t even seen the movie before I did this, nor had I even heard of him before the...
