I also decided to include a photo of my in my finished costume, since some of you might ask about it.

      Thank you, Margot. And definitely try to locate Lumberjanes. I’m sure they have it at RX Comics, if that’s anywhere near you.

    Love the flapper hair, and the totally dorky glasses! But, oh girl, you are killing me with the socks & stationery…I covet it all! Those Snow White socks…just…gimme!

    You totally rock those glasses! I wish I had stumbled upon that drop it like it’s hot notebook before I bought a new journal a few days ago. I’m probably still going to buy it just so I have it around for future use because it’s too awesome to pass up. And man, those socks are great. I would probably be afraid to ruin the Snow White ones too and only wear them on special days or something.

    Yay for your videos! We really enjoy them! I love your make-up and flapper hair & those “dork” glasses are awesome 🙂 I thought that my favorite items were the notebooks but then the socks came into scene, awww that chubby snow white are incredible! Specially the frill as the dress. I bought some socks while in Japan, but since they are nowhere to be found here (not cool asian markets that I know of) I wish I had bought more, oh well…next time? hahahha (girl dreaming here) I will look for those Lumberjanes comics you really sold them to me! 🙂

      Thank you! I’m so happy with my socks. I didn’t get any when we were in Japan, so Rick’s surprise was extra appreciated.
