It was a lot of fun! We did it on our farm at Tauherenikau, which doesn’t have any amenities yet. Part of the ceremony involved asking our friends and family to plant a small grove of seedling kahikateas, which will grow into something really cool to remember the day by.
But since this blog is about making stuff, here is the dress I made to get married in. 🙂 All photos by Polly Lind.
More pics and a few details of materials can be found here.
The same photographer who shot the Water Witches, Brett Stanley, has also done a session with Cullen. My favourite shot from the set will be featured in a cosplay mag soon so I can’t share that yet but meanwhile, here is a video showing some of Brett’s cosplay work, with a whole section featuring Cullen! Eeeeeee!
Started wondering what masses of tubular crin and chiffon would look like underwater, and ended up making three original characters so I could find out. Pics to follow.
I made a thing. The thing about this thing is that I made it all, up to and including shearing the sheep that unwillingly donated its wool to my project.

Here is a picture of me in my undies. Well actually it’s sports gear but looks like undies anyway. When I’m not making stuff I do pole, and I just learned how to do this move so I got some pictures taken for my 46th birthday. This is my favourite.
This was made over a year ago as a collaborative LED project to create the ultimate festival blanket. I’ve been waiting that long for my friend to write up his bit. Anyway – large waterproof fun fur textured trippy blanket with addressable LED border. Because why not?
Tutorial for how it was made can be found here.
The monsters got asked to audition for America’s Got Talent! They don’t know why, but they figure that if they need monsters from New Zealand then America must not have that much talent.
Anyway, here’s their audition video. They are expecting their prize to arrive shortly.
