Greetings From Maine!

Hello everyone!

My name is Jordan and I am from Southern Maine. I work with my family business selling and repairing sewing machines. Sadly I do not actually sew, yet, so making costumes are not my thing as I have other things to constantly work on such as my website. I appreciate and admire all the hard work a lot of you put into your designs.

I hope to make some new friends here, but for now I just wanted to say good morning, and hello! ^_^

Welcome to the site Just because you don't cosplay, doesn't mean you're not welcome here. Everyone is pretty friendly, so I'm sure you'll fit in nicely

Thanks for the welcome!

I figure maybe I can offer some insight on sewing machines at the very least seeing how that's my job! ^_^

I might pick your brain at some point. I'm a props guy, anything and everything with sculpting, fiberglass, clay, etc. But when it comes to sewing.... When I'm sitting at a sewing machine, there is no safe distance to be lol. But I plan to learn how to sew soon. It's near the top of my priorities list

Thats awesome mate! I personally would love to get into props, so it sounds like we both could use each other! Anything I don't know for sewing though I can consult with my mother or grandfather. It's a family business. In fact, my mom is working on a Youtube series that is all about sewing machine tips! She's posted a lot of them for free online on our stores facebook page (about 60 tips or so).

Sounds like a plan, feel free to ask me anything you need when you start working on props. If it's something I don't know the answer to, there's nearly half a million members on this forum. At least 1 will know what you need :P

Thank you so much! Zelda is my favorite thing ever. Nintendo has a way of taking my money away from me and Zelda is the biggest reason for that.

She's adorable!! She is my new fav as well! I dunno if I like her better with her sailcloth or not though. If that matters or not, lol.

Wow!! You have an awesome Legend of Zelda collection! I'm jealous of you Link and Epona figurine. We saw one at Naka-Kon, but sadly it was out of our price range.

I prefer her outfit with the sailcloth because I think it adds more interest, but that's just me.

Thanks so much! I believe you are referring to the statue from Twilight Princess? Boy is it big and beautiful, and a big hit on the wallet *cries* but not nearly as much as my Wind Waker Scroll *cries even more* . If you ever have any Zelda collecting questions I am always happy to help/answer them!

I think I prefer the Sailcloth too. I think its great for colder weather too. My opinion changes according to the season.

Yea, I think I agree about the sailcloth. For me it depends on the weather. If it's cold out I prefer to see her with it, and if it's warm then without. Like a scarf in fall!

Also if you two ever need Zelda collection advice feel free to ask! That Link and Epona statue wasn't even the most expensive thing there. My wallet hurts sooo bad XD
