The Monarchs

Guess what we're doing for Halloween?!
I know I said I wasn't going to do posts about things I wasn't actually working on...well maybe I said that to myself, but that's besides the point. I am at a training conference for work and I have SO many ideas working through my head that I need an outlet through something and since I wasn't willing to pay extra to have my sewing machine as an additional bag, I am writing this blog. I am still researching some fabrics for this, my secret project, and Redpool so I can't even get the satisfaction of buying anything!!! To top that off, I get to sit here and watch everyone else post pictures about SDCC. Something else I am not at! Don't get me wrong, I really do like my job a lot, the people I work with, and am having a great time here but seriously SDCC and WGU did you plan to have your events moved to the same week again?! Saves me some money at least ;)

So what I will start on when I get back (and paid) are the Monarchs. Garrick, Deb, Paul, Christa, Andy, and I are going to do a Venture Bros group for Halloween!

Garrick and I will be the Monarchs. (he can do the voice so well!!! I, however, will need a cigar and some gin before I can try to pull her voice off) I am also working out like crazy....I do love costumes with no pants, but I don't have a jacket on for this one to hide my pistol squats here I come!


Deb and Paul will be Brock and Molotov. Oddly enough, Garrick had a heart shaped eye patch he was able to give to Deb to start her on her Molotov journey...(don't ask)

Andy is going to be Hank in his Batman suit:

Christa will be Triana:

 This will be awesome and I am SO excited!! I will order my fabric when I get back and post all of the boot covers and armor I will be making on here as I go. Sorry for the short post, but I am stuck in a place where I can't sew!! I also spent the little time I had before I left making sure Garrick knew how to take care of himself and the cat while I was gone.....


  1. :o Awesome!!
    How are you going to manage the HUGE wings on Garrick though? O_o Know someone with a van?

    1. We're going to do the folded wings version. I think Garrick will be obnoxious enough in this costume without him taking out everyone with those wings, ha!

  2. How fun! I look forward to the pics! Hopefully both Garrick & Bastion were in one piece when you returned. :D

    1. Hahahaha they were! Bastion doesn't look any skinnier but he did come up with some new interesting hiding spots like the pantry drawer...
