Costumes, Crafts and Events

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog page!

Some of you might now that I have a weak spot for fantasy events and I like to make my own costumes. (If you are curious about my work, check out my facebook likepage).
Mostly I make my costumes from existing clothes or I get help sewing something new. But since it was my Birthday last Tuesday (15th September) I got the greatest gift from my mom…That’s correct a sewing machine! To be specific…This one below:

So now I can learn how to make my own costumes from pattern and fabric. I cant wait to start sewing! It is a new challenge for me!

I go to events across the Netherlands, but I know there are more events around the world. So if you like the fantasy world in the widest way, you will also love those events. It is a place where you can be creative and different without being judged.  Coming in costumes is not a obligation, but a choice, but you get a great experience and a confidence boost when you go!

Some events on the Netherlands are:
– Elfia –> This is an event that comes back two times a year (one in April and one in September)
– Castlefest –> This event is in August and absolutely my favorite!

This are the three most popular events here in the Netherlands, but there are so many more! Just look them up and see for yourself! You won’t regret it, I promise!

Hi everyone!
Welcome to my first blog!

It is kinda weird to write without really knowing to whom you’re writing, but hey there is always time to learn and improve! I’ll see this as a challenge, just like I do most of the stuff in my life! It is a lesson I learned last March and I learned it the hard way, believe me.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, which I forgot to do for a long time. And reading other blogs made me think like; Hey, I can start blogging as well. So I have a good reason to write again!

I hope this new goal can help me, and my readers, to learn how to change my/your life. I will not write about anything in specific, but various theme’s will come by. It depends on where my own focus is at the moment. For now it is all about mind change.

Mind change is the most important thing and the most difficult one to do when you want to change. If your mind does not want it for 100%, than you will quit and fall back in to your old patterns. But changing something that is familiar of save into something new and scary is very hard. Just take small steps at the time, but don’t forget to set goals.

For example:
I want to build up more strength and a more sportive body. I know I don’t reach that in one day or one week, but I will set small goals to achieve.
1. Do a 30 day challenge for my abs and arms.
2. After that 30 day challenge, continue but make the drills harder and more heavy.
3. In 3 months I will have build up a routine to keep that build up strength and
sportive body that I wanted so badly.

But the most important thing to remember is: Keep Focused! Everyone can do it and so can you!
