So the other day, my sister and I went to a midnight screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Because Harry Potter has been in our lives for so many years (and because I’m crafty and slightly obsessed), we dressed up. She went as Tonks and I went as Luna:

(The photo of me is terrible, I know. My brother took it in the crappy lighting of my kitchen.)

Siarra/Tonks costume was pretty simple and mostly consisted of found items: a black lacy shirt from the thrift store, a shawl of mine, black jeans, and purple hair spray, choker, and animal nose from party city.

Mine was considerably more crafty. I found a too-big v-neck at the thrift store and made it smaller to fit me. Also got the tie there. Black skirt, dowel wand behind the ear, and my favorite (and the most crafty) part:

Needlefelted radish earrings! Mine are slightly different from the ones Luna has in the movie, but we’ll say I was going from the book. : ) I recently took up needlefelting (I got a kit from a swap) and have already made a couple of things (a sheep and a butterfly). Pictures of those will happen… sometime. Maybe.

I’ve also started a new spinning/dyeing project and am knitting away on a couple of things. Plus another swap. You know, it’s the summer, and apart from work, what else am I going to do with my time besides craft? : )
