I am back from a long break and vacation and couldn't be happier to start blogging again with this fun sewing series organized by Kat from Sew Chibi and Ari from Max California: SEW GEEKY. 


This months theme is classic Japanese anime and of all the geeky things this is by far my favorite. I grew up watching Japanese animations on Saturday mornings and my favorite was Astro Boy or as I recall it Astro Le Petit Robot. So it is with no surprise I share with you my little Astro Boy. 


 I decided to post in black and white since that is how I watched the show growing up. I used the soon to be released Cloud 9 swimsuit pattern for the shorts ( a Titchy Threads & Petit a Petit collaboration).


I made a bathing cap to ressemble Astro hair and some booties as well.  


We had fun with the shoot and tried to recreate the many famous Astro poses. Unfortunately I lost my camera in London and had to use my i-phone for the shoot and had a little fun in photoshop editing the photos. 


I had so much fun with this and can't thank Kat and Ari enough for inviting me to their series. You have got to check out both their posts- A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.... go HERE & HERE. There is even a really cool giveaway. 


 Now you might see an Astro Girl post soon- it was requested by one little MissE and maybe another with a Candy Candy inspired outfit, as that was my all time favorite saturday morning cartoon. I wanted her hair so badly!!!


Ahhh, it's good to be back!
