Westworld

January 16, 2017   /   byJaney  / Categories :  Feeds

Being the fan of westerns that I am, I was immediately taken in by the new HBO incarnation of Westworld. Even though I enjoyed the original 1973 film, it wasn’t without its flaws, which is why I was open to a new take on it, and I can say the show did not let me down, and ended its first season with me begging for more. Parts of the show, including its jaw-dropping finale were filmed at the very accessible Paramount Ranch (which we visited before, back in 2015, you can view that post here) so I felt it was time for a revisit! I also took along my friend, Kaitlyn, also a fan of the show, who had never visited Paramount Ranch before.

If you didn’t read my previous post on Paramount Ranch, but are familiar with the 1990s TV show Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, then this will look very familiar, as it was used for Colorado Springs. It was also used in the sci-fi sudo-western, Firefly.

Between our first visit and this one, little changed, with the exception of fresh paint and the addition of the church, which was used in Westworld, and I was delighted to find still there.

Keep reading for more images of Paramount Ranch!

It should be noted that you cannot enter any of the buildings. The image of the the interior of the church was shot through the window.

After being used by Paramount Pictures for decades and changing hands several times, in 1980, it was purchased by the National Parks, whose hands it remains in today, which is what makes it so accessible. Plus, it’s free! There is a donation box, if you wish to donate (which I highly encourage if you if you value our National Parks System). Behind the western town are several hiking trails, and the area is popular for horseback riding, I can’t say I blame them, because it’s pretty nifty to ride a horse through an old western town!

Rainbow Overalls Dress

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.

and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
