I really cannot wait for tax time now! I've been planning on ordering my TOS science dress for a while now. Recently I added getting a couple of yards of fabric from Spoonflower. Now I've added making a new coat for Harry Dresden. I recently found out that he does not wear a duster. He wears an Inverness coat! Today I found a Simplicty pattern for an Inverness coat. I can make myself a new canvas coat for under $35! I'm thinking next year I'll look into commissioning a leather one, now that I know the type of coat I need.

If you find a place to commission a leather Inverness coat, please share. I got my husband a leather duster for Christmas, but the latest book introduced the idea of the Inverness coat *shakes fist at Jim Butcher* and I'd love to find an accurate one. We are basing the costume for him off Harry from the earlier books, with the original staff, replacement shield bracelet, but the newer style pendant (with the added stone). Pretty sure he'll look like Dresden, even if we can't find The mythical black leather Inverness coat.

For the time being, I'm looking into commissioning a replacement mantle for the duster I did get him. He's got the shoulders of a linebacker, and unfortunately the mantle on the duster stands up like Saiyan armor shoulder pads from DBZ at current.

Will do! I will probably be shouting it from the rooftops so all frustrated Dresdens can finally get the right coat.

My first thought when I read that was "AN INVERNESS COAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"

To be fair, I think he's always worn a duster previous to this (first the canvas one, and then the leather one that Susan gave him). The latest iteration is an Inverness coat. And since black leather ones are impossible to find, I'm just going to blame the Fae for it, since it was almost certainly a custom job in universe as well.

Aaanyway... My Dresden is wearing a duster for this Dragon*Con, because we have to start somewhere :P

Picture up of Pascal. It was fun running around with that scarf of hers. However, something seems...off about the cosplay. Sure I'm not done yet but still, there's something...not right and it's bugging me. >_<

Aww, did I miss the boat on the topic of sewing machine recommendation/gushing? XD

Well, here goes anyway. Mine is a Pfaff Creative 1471 that was originally my mom's, complete with matching serger. (I really need to find that sucker again and actually practice on it, I've just been using my sewing mentor's serger.) I can't even describe how utterly beautiful a machine it is, and it's older than I am! (I'm 26 this coming August.) It's heavy, has a crapton of pre-programmed special stitches (including some simple embroidery), a built-in walking foot, and it is a beast. I swear this thing can sew through almost anything.

Like my Messiah of Silence skirt. Outside is suedecloth, lining is a little-heavier-than-shirtweight cotton sateen, with knife-pleated ruffles sandwiched in between in the hem. (I've since lost count of how many layers that was, but it was a lot.) The machine did complain a bit, but my god did it do a beautiful job with the added bonus of not bursting into flames.

Of course, the downside to an old machine being so awesome is that it pretty much holds its original retail value, so if I needed to replace it, I'd need to shell out $600-700. If I ever needed to though, I know it's worth every single cent.

Well...this sucks.

I got pink eye sometime yesterday, probably just before trying on my wigs because my eye looks redish in the pictures. So now I need to wash all the wigs I tried on yesterday because I don't want to risk it. I don't suppose I could just spray disinfectant on them? I'll probably have to do that for Seymour since that be difficult to wash.

Even though the convention is like, five months away, I've got serious con fever already after discussing the M'gann and Artemis costumes with a friend for like, three hours consecutively. I'm sort of waffling between buying the wig and dying my hair (HEADACHES, BRO), but either way...ah. CONVENTION COUNTDOWN.

I think my mom actually complimented a cosplay-related thing without a negative comment attached to it. 0_0 I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. She says my fb profile picture(The Morgiana picture with the flying hair) looks really cool. What in the world is going on here...

Also realized that I need to get to a fabric store and get my sister those zippers she needs. The con is next weekend and she isn't ready yet.

Ug. Cosplay slump. I had to put 95% of my costuming work on hold for the holidays, and totally blew the deadline I had set for myself. Now that all the family madness has passed, I *still* don't feel like finishing that scalemaille, even though I only have one sleeve left. My previous motivator-- OMG SO MUCH TO DO IN SO LITTLE TIME-- isn't working right now. :-/
