Well, I'll be at DragonCon as Leoben if that counts

no specific advice, unless there's a specific question
but then, I had to ask for help with my costume

I've been doing BSG costuming since...06, I want to say. I'm big into the Colonial Fleet that you can see at Dragoncon and Megacon...pretty much anywhere there's a good party con. I was actually one of the people who made the first 100% screen accurate Viper Flight suits.

Can you tell me about the Colonial Fleet? I was interested in joining it as a marine, but the website was kind of confusing, and I can't figure out which ship to join. Most of them don't seem to have websites. Also, what kind of things do yall do?

P.S. You should be pretty damn proud of that flight suit! I don't know how you did it, but it's amazing!

I think you're looking at the CDF, Colonial Defense Force. The Colonial Fleet is a different ballgame. We're mainly a party group that meets at conventions and gets crazy together. You pretty much just join the board, meet some friends locally and get your callsign based on whatever shenanigans you pull with us or you assign yourself one.

Also, thank you! We but a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into those damn things.

This thread is pretty dead, so I thought I would resurrect it...(ha, get it?)

Anyway, I'm really interested in putting together a Six costume, in her stereotypical red dress! But I'm at a loss pattern-wise as patterns and I don't get along very well.

Does anyone who has made Six's red dress have a pattern they'd be willing to share? Or has any suggestions on patterns to use to alter it? Or any other fancy methods you used to make your dress?

Thanks!

Never made the dress, I'm not where near as cylon-sculpted perfect as Six is xD
but i did find actual costume pics;

looks to me like it's a pretty basic pencil skirt and then it's all up to the bodice from there on.

I can't for the life of me find pics of the back of it though. you might have to resort ot screencaps from the show / shuffling through netflix A LOT
