Suit Up! Our New Series on Bluprint

oonaballoona | by marcy harriell | Suit Up! Our New Series on Bluprint

Hiya peeps. This is a very quick PSA, as the week has gone upside down topsy-turvy. A kerfuffle, I tell you, A KERFUFFLE!

Our new series, Suit Up! in collaboration with DC Comics, launched on Bluprint last week. We had a rip-roaring, great good time doing this, and it was this comic book lover's dream to recreate some of my favorite icons--AND to dress ROB up too!!! (Y'all, I went absolutely overboard on his look. I saw my chance to get him in gold pleather, and I merrily took it.)

There are four episodes with four heroes in all--and although the goal of each is to create a costume, I think you'll get some cool stuff out of it in your everyday sewing life-- like how to work with leather. And the aforementioned pleather. Oh and I stumbled into a GREAT sewing machine that I'll tell you about soon!

But I digress. The main point of this quick post is to let you know that all content on Bluprint is FREE right now, through tomorrow (10/12). This event actually started earlier this week, but again, topsy turvy kerfuffle land over here. So! You've got, oh, twenty-four hours or so to catch Suit Up!, or Re:Fashion, or just go down the rabbithole of the gazillion things you can learn over there. Inspiration for a lovely weekend of creating that I dearly hope awaits us all. I'll be back next week with some costume close-ups, cuz I know we all like to get into the stitchin! 

Happy surfing, fellow creators...

  1. Oh my, I hope all is well at House Kalkatroona. Loved your comic hero series, but I don't know what you're going to do about the resulting costume dilemma! Change outfits halfway through every party?

    1. All is well, just BUSY! And...WELL. It is my dream to host a party in which I change on the hour, so this option is definitely on the table.

  2. Love your series on BluePrint! Rob seems super excited about his Aquaman cosplay and your take on Batman is fantastic.

  4. Whoa. I die of the awesome. And yes to Katrina's question, how do you decide about costume distribution within a marriage (and scenes? I hope?)? Asking for a friend...

    1. Mmm, good question. Once Rob realized that my possession of Batman meant *he* couldn't be, there was a bit of teeth gnashing. His own fault, really, he always wants to see me in black, so he happily supported my bid for the Dark Knight. AND I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE HIM IN GOLD PLEATHER.

      So basically, we decide by doing whatever I want 😂
