A cycling post

We're taking a short break from dresses to talk about some cycling events in the Sacramento area, I'm wearing a dress, don't worry. I'll post something about it soon.
  1. Sac Cycle Chic's Sunday Ride, October 17, 10:30 a.m. at the Fremont Park Fountain. I've missed all the other Sunday rides so far, but I'm very committed to make this one. I'm saving a very special dress for the occasion. Also, check out the Cycle Chic's post about the fashion blogger meet-up, notice anyone familiar?
  2. Fall Tweed Ride, November 21, starting at the Bike Kitchen at 10:30 a.m. I can't hardly wait. I love the tweed rides so much. I do hope more of my friends will join me for this fashionable and fun experience. Here are pictures of the last few rides.
  3. Second Saturday Concert at the Bike Kitchen; this Saturday, Oct 9th, the Bike Kitchen is hosting Travis Colorado's Midnight Moonshiners and the Bight Faces. Show starts at 6 p.m. and there will be Two River's Cider.
This week is Second Saturday, like I mentioned, so there are going to be lots of fun events taking place around the central city. Like, the 2010 Sammies and R St. Block Party, on R St. between 15 and 14 Streets, from 6-10 pm, free!
Performers include:
The Nickel Slots, The New Humans, Storytellers, Goodness Gracious Me feat. the Sizzling Sirens Burlesque, Joints and Jams Hip-Hop Emcee Showcase feat. DJ Rated R, DLRN, DJ Phase, Mike Colossal, Random Abiladeze, TAIS, Izreal, TASK1ne, Mr. Lingo, A.R.A.B., Luke ScratchRocker, Tribe of Levi, Live Manikins, J.Rockit.

Also, there's only a few more weekends left to catch the Sacramento Underground Tour, I think we're going to try to go on Sunday. 

So, I hope you get out to some of these fun events! See you around Sactown!

    Oh, now I'm sad. I thought the Tweeds ride was on the 6th. I was so looking forward to my first one but alas, I will be on vacation on the 21st.
    I was even basing my 3 piece outfit for our assignment this week on my dream Tweeds ride outfit :-(
    ...maybe next time.

    Firefly Portraits: The Crew of Serenity

    I've been heard at work making this fun posters featuring the crew of Serenity with memorable quotes.
    I've done everyone except Simon, mostly because I haven't found a compelling quote from him yet.
    So here's a long graphic of all the posters, perfect for pinning! (hint hint).
    Right now you can get $5 off any of these great prints, t-shirts or tote bags in my Society6 shop.

    I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

    This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

    I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

    Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
    I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
    I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

    If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

    Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

    Guest Post - Hand-made roll-up panniers by Libby Bowles

    It's bike month everyone! Don't forget to check out, and register to win prizes and such. In other exciting news, my amazing friend Libby can do anything! She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
    Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
    I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
    I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
