So I don’t usually share products on my page that aren’t used for costumes but I just had to share GiPsy Dharma. You may have seen their pictures shared on friends facebook feeds with amazing giveaways of their boots, and I for one try and enter each week because their products are just amazing. Don’t worry I’ll be adding all the links to the bottom of this page.

GiPsy Dharma is not just a brand it is a passion for handmade clothing and leather footwear. Life is a journey, a beautiful journey if one looks at it from the right perspective and GiPsy Dharma is my own philosophy of always being on the move and constantly dreaming of what will come next. Gipsy Dharma boots are designed to help people in their journey by, if only slightly, beautifying their lives, inspiring them, raising their level of self-awareness and by giving them a lucky sign to start fresh. After all, don’t we all have a little free spirited Gipsy in us just waiting to get out and explore? 🙂 – From the About Us

Been Away For A While

So followers I’ve been away for quite some time. I have still been making costumes over the last few months as people who follow my facebook page will have seen but I’ve not had much time in between to update my blog.

Due to a death in early May I didn’t really feel like posting much or really anything on here. Hopefully between now and the end of the year I will be trying to update with photos from the last few months as well as any costumes/commissions I have done in between.

Also because of my absence from here I apologise to anyone who has commented on my posts asking questions and I will do my best to get back to you. I have lots of updates to add here and will work on those in the coming months. With luck as we enter 2014 I will be back to posting more regularly. Thank you for sticking by me.

Been having a bit of a play round with some of the setting on here as well you may have noticed my posting name has changed from Samward to Naurarwen and I’ve also tried to add a gravatar which hopefully works as well.

Quick update

I’ve been doing a few updates to the various galleries on here including adding drop downs to a lot of them. I have also changed the header as this page has become more than just Bella’s wedding dress now. There may be some other changes over the next few days so don’t be alarmed if you come back to the page and suddenly everything looks different.

Added A New Affiliate

So some of you may have noticed that I have added a new affiliate to the side bar. I  have added the awesome author Felicity Heaton, the fabulous writer of Her Angel series, Vampires Realm series and her newest series Vampire Erotic Theatre. I would have to say her books at 18+ but they are (in my opinion) the best written books ever made along side JR Wards Blackdagger Brotherhood. So please click in the link and check out her series, all books are available on Amazon.

Apologises for Lack of Updates

I just wanted to apologise now for immense lack of updates at the moment on here. I’ve had a lot on recently costume wise as well as general life. I have had a very hectic convention schedule as well so updates have been extremely lacking. I’m going to spend the next few days this week sorting out new images and information I want to add to this blog so hopefully there will be some proper updates end of this week and beginning of next.


Where would any blog be without affiliates. I have started adding affiliates to my blog including blogs for help with Bella Swan and Alice Cullen costumes from the Twilight Saga run by two of my favourite Cullen cosplayers from across the pond, and “mini” Alice another UK cosplayer. Also listed is UK Twilight, a UK based Twilight website who I am admin for and also a book reviewing blog run by some very close convention friends of mine. Feel free to check out their blogs/website when you get chance as all the people who run them rock.

There will be futher blog updates late with the lace progress on Bella’s wedding dress. Everything is definitely coming together now.


Apologises again to any of my followers for not having any updates at the moment. I’ve had to take a step back from the wedding dress for a week or so due to waiting for the lace to arrive and not being able to do a lot until it eventually gets here. Also waiting on the buttons which are coming from the States. For now I’m just going to disessemble the mock up wedding dress as I need to use some of the pieces as pattern pieces and hopefully get the proper fabric all cut out.

Whilst I’ve not been working on the wedding dress I have been working on Emmett and Edward’s waist coats as well as Esme’s dress from the wedding. As well as sourcing various other bits and pieces for Breaking Dawn flashback Edward and the other wedding pieces.

I hope there will be some more updates on the various costumes later this week. I have 4 weeks and 4 days to get everything sorted so please cross everything you can for me.
