Halloween is coming

I'm thinking of steampunking it out for Halloween this year.
Here are some good places to find things if you are thinking of doing the same.
There is Scoundrelle's Keep. She is local, cool and that's where the picture is
from. Such awesome stuff.
We found Steampunk Emporium at work. It seems to have a lot of nice things
for men. One of my emps really likes the men's bathing suits. :)
If you are thinking about designing your costume but need guidance,
there is this page.
I've personally purchased from Art of Adornment. They were super helpful when
I couldn't get pay-pal to behave. I love the top hat I got from them.

I'm going to start sewing tonight. I'll post some in-progress pics eventually.

Hello Blog, it's been a few days hasn't it.

So here's what i've been up to. Went to a wedding in Hastings MN.
It was pretty out there and my friends were really pretty and
the photographer was a friend too.

He's really getting good at it.

Had friends in town from KC. They will be coming back for Thanks Giving.
Why? Because our house is the coolest.

It was a busy but fun weekend. I'm super tired today though.
Had crazy dreams all night. Dreams where i'm not in control in anyway.
Dreams where people are treating me badly. Dreams where Ht does not
love me.

So, no more of those because you really can't sleep well when you are
having bad dreams. I would love to have some flying ones though.

Why is it that....

All the cute ventage shoes that I find are way to small for me. :(
I would love to wear these.

vintage Pumpkin Oxford Pumps

Aren't they super cute.

Looks like this is going to be a pretty things post.

The Kelifern Black Wedding Dress

I know it says wedding dress, but that's just too pretty.

This is from Scoundrelle's Keep. Maybe I should save up and make something
like this for the halloween this year...

Well that's all we've got for today here at chez iki.
Oh, the kitties handled the vet apt well, and they are healthy.

Trip to the.....

The place that we wont mention until we get back as we don't want to spook anyone.

For the trip, i had to get another carrier. I figured, get a little one for the Siren so that she doesn't pick on her brother when I try to put them in the same one.

Well it would seem that Grimlock likes the small one.

And Siren is quite taken with the big one all to her self.

They do seem to have ideas of their own about all of them.

Umbrellas and organization

So this Friday in Downtown Minneapolis, there were umbrellas popping up all over Hennepin Ave.

This on was supposed to be vertical, but i'm lazy today. So outside my store's front door, an umbrella attached to the garbage can. I was waiting for the city to fine me for there being one there (i'm not responsible for the umbrellas by the way.)

Saturday they showed up on the old Shinders building. Maybe the City did grumble at someone.

Here's a wide shot so you can see it better.
Now, a lot of people thought that this was because Mary Poppins is in town. Sadly no. While investigating the one by my store i saw the Travelers insurance logo on them. So it would seem that the insurance people are trying for some viral marketing.

Since I work downtown, I got Labor Day off. :)
I was inspired by Ms Wendy of Wendy Knits, so i got to organizing and cleaning.
Below is my nice organize entry closet.

Most of the shoe cubes are filled with knitting.

Grimlock decided to help with the organizing.
