I am officially a fellow. I’m very excited about this opportunity and it will be a wonderful learning experience for graduate school. Also, I made this display stand for the case shot ball I got at Brimfield. It is just a pice of wood that I partially shaped by hand. I tried to decorate it by using a nail to put holes into it to form designs but it didn’t go exactly as I would have liked. Then I hand carved a crude hole for where the ball will sit and put a leather washer inside for it to sit on. Then I smashed four push pins to get the metal nail inside. I then used those to tack down four leather strips to hold the ball in place. #graduatestudent#gradlife#antiquecollecting#history#graduateschool#fellowship#publichealthfellowship#antiques#americancivilwar

Well, here’s a bit of a change- some #outofcosplay pics for y’all! Did you know one of my favourite things to do is antique hunting? When I’m not working on cosplay for you guys, I’m more than likely looking for vintage knick-knacks and clothes haha! My favourite decade to collect from is the 50s! Do you have any hobbies you enjoy outside of cosplay? 🍑🧡✨
Our #madebyhowe Den sofa in this fab ginger corduroy from @howe36bournestreet is a popular combination, and you can see why - exceptionally comfortable and wonderfully bright. Snap this one up now, or if this is not your biscuit then why not order one exactly the way you want it, all the way down to the wheels? ⠀
