Hottie of the Week: Tom Welling

This gentleman is so beautiful he actually makes me miss Smallville, and by the end, even I had given up on that one. Never, let it be said, because of the actors. I'd be all in for seeing Tom headline something again because I know I'm not the only who thinks the gray hair just makes him sexier. Did you hear that, universe? Make it so!

Sidenote: First hottie post at Wilde Designs! Whooo! I extend a warm welcome to all the folks heading over here from Wilde Whispers. You're gonna have fun.

I have very HUMMINA feelings about the gray.

That smile, tho...

Cosplay Tutorial: Warbler

I bothered with exactly zero make-up. Deal with it.

Forget how awful my spikey hair is and look at the cute baby!

You guys are all going to be put off by how easy this was. You're going to think I'm a lazy bastard. And you'll be right. My sister and I wanted very badly to be Warblers. This was awhile ago, as you can tell by the fact that my now almost four-year-old son needed help to stand. 

Step 1: Go to the thrift store. If you find a good one, they'll not only have tons of blue blazers, they'll have them with the gold buttons that Warbler uniforms sport. I then found a copy of the Warbler insignia through Google, printed it, and chalked the back. Then I laid it against the blazer and traced over the shape with a pencil. That left a chalky outline on the dark fabric, and I used that to trace out the D with red fabric paint. After that dries, any leftover chalk will wipe right off. Since I'm an iffy seamstress and my sister, though better than me, was in a hurry, we used duct tape to create the piping. And, honestly? It worked great. Easy to do and photographs well.
The tie is thankfully pretty easy to track down. Any red and navy blue striped tie will work. I got mine on Amazon right here (keep an eye on the price since it's as high as $20 sometimes, but it drops down regularly). The same goes for the white shirt. Personally since I was keeping my blazer on most of the time, I got a short sleeved white shirt for my own comfort.

On the pants, we actually messed up. The Warblers wear charcoal gray slacks, and we got navy that matched our blazers. That's what happens when you're in a hurry, folks. The upside is that I love those darn pants and wear them all the time for work, so there's always an upside! If you want to add extra swag to your look, grab some shades and you're ready to go.

Changes Coming

With the support of some of my fabulous followers, I will be combining this blog with Wilde Whispers. This blog won't change, not really. It will stay right here, and it will be even more active and more awesome than ever. Just expect some potentially wonky code or a delay or two here and there as I get everything settled. In the end, I think you'll all be pleased with the change of pace and the more up to date content as things co-mingle.
