My friend and I recently attended a new spy themed LARP game called; Aces and Operatives!
I was a body guard for the CIA, turned into an Assassin Operative working undercover for the enemy
It was a great excuse to dress up fancy, although I was already sold at the canapes and Poker!

I have always loved dragons, and the Chinese Dragons have a unique form and art style
So to celebrate the Chinese New Year, I have drawn my own Chinese Dragon
Monster Hunter is one of my favourite games
I love the art style as well as the game play
I bought a PSP especially to play it, after my friend recommended it
I bought this Grecian style green dress for just £1 at a jumble sale
However, unfortunately it was much too big for me, so I adjusted it to fit me.
Finished adjusted dress
As you can see the dress was about double my size!
I discovered someone had let the dress out previously, using the added gold material at the back
Dress before alteration
I removed the gold added back piece and put darts in fit myself
I then added a zip as I had to remove the previous hook and eye fastenings

When my brother was moving out his flat-mate needed to get rid of an old desk. So I decided to up-cycle it into a dressing table!

I bought a long piece of plastic and cut it in half
I created the handles out of cardboard and papier-mâché
I used bandages as a top layer on the handles to create a more realistic texture
I then painted it according to the original design
Here is a photo to quickly show you what face-painting materials I use
