"This dress took a while to come up with. Since Supernatural is a modern show I didn’t have an obvious vintage image to turn into a sweater, like my Superman project.
So I decided to do a 1950s based outfit. I found a pattern in my favorite dress style, then worked on designing the fabric. I wanted it to look like any old 50s novelty print at a glance, but closer up it would depict kitschy looking versions of key items in the show. I struggled with what color to make the background, then one night it hit me: Deans jacket green. Duh. The fabric printed a little lighter than I uploaded, but I like it anyway. You can find the fabric here if you want to make your own Supernatural frock.
Ruth and I had a blast taking pictures, luckily no one walked by to find two girls making circles with salt and carrying around a pie..”
This is a photo of the best and worst purchase I have ever made in my life. It is a kotatsu. For those of you unfamiliar, a kotatsu is a Japanese heated table. The top of the table comes off, you put a blanket on in the cold seasons, and then put the table top back on. There are small space heaters underneath the whole table and when you stick your feet under there, it’s a toasty oven of pure bliss. It’s great on heating bills because I don’t turn on my heat, just my kotatsu. It’s the best and the worst purchase because it’s fucking awesome yet it’s so awesome I never want to leave the thing and end up missing school because who the fuck wants to get out from under a toasty oven of pure bliss? Not this bitch. My advice to you, is that you should totally get a kotatsu but only if you have the will power and self control to not get trapped under there. It’s so addicting, I even sleep under it sometimes…
