Necklaces aren’t just for pendants anymore…

snapes memories charm necklace slytherin

While perusing the Net this morning, I came across this fantastic etsy shop.  1luckysoul has an wonderful collection of necklaces that can tempt the many obsessions of geeks and fandom!

Look at this piece called Snape’s Memoir. I think it’s my favorite. There are horcruxes, sorting hats, the Deathly Hallows trio, stacks of Hogwarts books, and then, there’s the Hunger Games collection. I’d have a hard time making a decision as to which ones to buy because I wouldn’t be able to stop at just one!

Faerie Fashion

After being heavily involved with historical reenactment for 19 years, I can appreciate great costuming, both in the time spent in its creation and the money invested. Costuming done right is a labor of love. One of my favorite “fun” types of costuming has to be faeries. There are no set rules, just let your mind run free!

sairosaurus on Craftster has shared her faerie creations. What is even better is that as you read through this thread, not only do you get to see some fantastic photos but she goes into her creative process for several bits and pieces of her costumes. She discusses how she made her goblin shoes, a goblin latex mask as well as her faerie wings. Her work is amazing!
