Costume Edits

I don’t know why I find this quote so entertaining, but I do. I think it fits all of us perfectly!

I made this is photoshop using clipping masks and ran Pioneer Woman’s “Colourized” action at 65% opacity. You can see my originals here.

Halloween

I mentioned previously that I had spent a fair amount of time working on our Halloween costumes. What did we go as? Final Fantasy XII characters! I don’t expect any of you to know who they are (especially if you follow me on Pinterest and wonder why the heck I kept pinning all these crazy costumes), but I’m Ashe and Mr Bean was Balthier. Look and see for a comparison:

Not quite cosplay worthy, but pretty good, hey? Mr. Bean’s mum helped me with most of the sewing as I am not very good at it but I made all the armour out of craft foam, which was fairly time consuming! Fortunately for us, we were able to wear our costumes three times, which helps justifying the amount of time I spent on them. But I had fun, so it’s worth it anyways!

We have some pretty awesome friends who have some pretty awesome costumes. Apparently many of them want to shoot me (I count four):

A bunch of us are pretty silly as well:

You can't see it, but his rugby jersey from Wales says "Brains"

These two won best couple costume!

How was your Halloween? Did you go to any Halloween Parties?

The photos marked “Bean SOOC” are the original, unedited versions for this week’s Costume themed Good to Wow: Shoot and Edit.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! Today is a beautiful day – it’s officially summer (yay!), the sun is shining (for the moment), it’s not raining(for the moment), Mr. Bean and I are going on a bike trip tomorrow in the mountains with my family, I’m finally done all my tutoring (yay!), and I have a bunch of photos to share with you!

First of all are the edits from my Father’s Day photos. You can see all the other edits over on Ashley’s blog.

I also thought that I would share a few photos from a photo walk I took last week
