A Very Special Day

My last few weeks have been total chaos, work on and off and preparing for the boyfriend’s visit. As most of you know I’m in a long distance relationship and I usually travel to the States to see my boyfriend, this time it was going to be a little different. Five years ago I met him for the very first time IRL when he visited me and after all this time he was going to come over again for a short visit in the Netherlands. We had a few things planned including Dutch Comic Con the first weekend and a few city trips the next week. DCC was definitely a fun convention, and it ended in a very special way.

If the picture and the intro of this post didn’t give it away yet. We got engaged It was a very special moment that I’m glad I got to share with a few of my close friends. We’ve talked about our future in the past, discussed marriage and all of that, and even though I knew this was going to happen sometime in the near future I hadn’t expected him to ask me so early during his visit here. I was surprised, of course super happy but also very grateful he took into consideration to ask me with a few of my close friends present. Obviously I cried a lot of happy tears and received lots of love from everyone who congratulated us. Without any fancy words, I just feel so, so, blessed.

Now comes planning the wedding and all the other fun stuff, I’m really excited and definitely looking forward to our new adventure.

Monochromatic ♡ Cosplay

problemI’ve been putting it off for long enough now. Dutch Comic Con is in two weeks and I am far, far, far (!) from ready. I’ve been trying to avoid it, but it’s really time for me to start working on my cosplay.

Not too long ago Dani and I went out to the fabric market in Utrecht and gathered a few yards of fabric for our upcoming projects. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, but I got some fabric I ended up liking, and I definitely didn’t want to go home empty handed. Work has been a little slow and because I had all this extra time I started on making a draft dress for my cosplay and slowly work towards the final dress. I am definitely proud of my straight seams so far, and loving the black and white.

I’ve got one less problem now ;)
