I finished patterning out my costume for the Sci-Fi/Fantasy masquerade but then I found more reference pictures that show parts of the costume in more detail then I had before so now I have to make a few adjustments to some of the patterns before I enlarge and cut them out. I'm also starting some repair work on a few hall costumes as well as starting a new hall costume.

OH SUSAN...I have a reference pic for you. Official art of the back. Message me.

I still haven't started...I need one small bit of fabric to begin the underlayer but having just been laid off, I really can't go and buy it. I think this snag in my life is going to mean I can't enter the Future Fashion show, either.

Costume-Con has a history of keeping things as a surprise as far as the masquerades go.

I think more people are into sharing when it comes to hall costumes, or for some of the special things like single pattern.

But I can say that, having just come back from Arisia, and signing up a whole bunch of new memberships, that the steam punk craze has hit the east coast hard.

Lots of really cool stuff was walking around up there.

and they also had a steam punk ball, as well as a weird victorian/sideshow type circus as well.

I don't think the costumers from CC are worried about who might copy stuff if they say anything, I just think that the surprise on stage, and the anticipation is all part of the fun.

unless it's a friend that I am helping with something, I would much rather be amazed and surprised when I see them in person.

I have also noticed a flaw in my brain, where a friend tells me what they are working on, and I get a picture of it in my head, imagining what they might be doing, and then, I am not as open to enjoying what it is, when it doesn't match my pre-conceived notion. Sooooo I would rather just be surprised by seeing a friend wearing something, and going

Holey Poop? where'd that come from, that's awesome.

even better, teasing them by walking past at the last minute going to the green room, you're right. but you can still be sneaky if you want, it's only about 100 feet( 30 meters?) from the elevators for the guest rooms, to the green room.

This is gonna be different than any con you've gone to, but it'll be fun,l promise. or else Kaijugal wouldn't have been working so hard to get all you great new Canadians to come.
heck, as of right now, we have more canadians than californians coming, which I think is her evil plan.

Finished painting the lining. Sewing is going slower than I want since I'm still recovering from wisdom teeth surgery.

Hoping everything will be done in time.

I've gotten my vampire costume to go with the theme finished. And I have undergarments for my historical costume but not much else. Lots of sewing left for me to do these next few weeks.
