As I step into this new year, I feel my effort can be better spent by using InstaGram’s built in features of Stories. Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates of where I’m at and what I’m doing, a quicker way of keeping you in the know, and an easier way for me to keep track of where I’ve been!
Any helpful feedback is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new adventure, one that has encouraged me to get out more and show off my beautiful town, and hopefully, maybe someday, the world!
If SarahTonin’s around, you’ll more then likely see her toting a gold and black bag, which has been known to contain at least a couple balloons – if not a bag or two! Made by BellaVieBags, this bag follows her to events and parties, sometimes also containing other arts and crafts guaranteed to bring smiles and entertainment.
See below for an example list of creations you may see with SarahTonin around!

A siren from the DC Comics, based this character first made her debut back in 1992, when creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm decided that it was too bizarre for the Joker himself to jump out of a pop out cake. He ended up doing anyways, but not before they had made a female sidekick/love interest. The inspiration for her costume came from Dinn’s college friend Arleen Sorkin, who performed a dream sequence wearing a jester costume in Days of Our Lives. Because of their history, Dinn easily incorporated aspects of her personality into the character. Quinn was also inspired by a mutual female friend’s “stormy but nonviolent relationship”, according to Timm.
A former psychiatrist falling in love with the thing she was trying to cure – utter madness. This character gives us insight into a twisted side of human nature, and shows us how easy it is to slip into this tunnel of madness.

You just have to be willing to put a bit more of yourself into it, and be willing to network to those around you who have same passion and desire to see this outfit shine. Most of my outfits are handcrafted, or pieced together with old clothing articles and repurposed household items. Example: currently I am saving all my can lids to someday build a dalek replica, and in another box, I have collected random objects to build a machine that goes ‘ding’.
On one last note, always remember to test your costume by walking, sitting, crouching, standing, (and especially in ladies costumes, to ensure no slippages) raise arms above head. Do this for at least an hour before deciding it’s show worthy. Then you can run around being your favorite character to your hearts content. 🙂
