Haven't really made any progress since last time. Still working on designs. Debating if I want to use plastic clear scales somehow to possibly defuse light. But I don't know much about how the fiber optics will work or if much light will be given off.

Since I'm working on historical garb, no work on the Stardew valley costumes yet (except for having bought my wig and perusing overbust/bustier patterns for what I envision Abigail's main shirt to be. I mainly see it as a fashion-type corset and it suits her style...). But compared to the last two years these things'll be a walk in the park, so long as I start sometime in February, no worries.
...also, I marked my calendar for when Crafter's Corner applications open up!

You've got loads of time, you got this. Although I am in a similar boat since I had to do a 180 with my plans; good thing I didn't buy anything yet. But when I had Blue Angel planned out, I was going to buy the choker off Etsy and the small accessories so it wouldn't be too bad. I'm glad I didn't buy anything to start off the costume otherwise it would have been yet another unfinished costume yet to be finished.

Thanks for the encouragement. I cut out the pattern I am using lol. And still priming wire foam cover things. Then need to paint and seal and the head piece should be done. Haven't started Moltres yet. Le sigh

Np . Good luck!

As for me, Michael's still has the bracelet base I need for Celina's bracelet, so that's awesome! Great to see they still have it seeing as they might replace it with new stuff. Gonna get it this weekend and I can start it!
So, I'll use the sculpey to make the 'place holder' for the gem, and glue it on. Then I'll be using that circle ring people use to attach keychains with for the 'loop'. That leaves me with the gem, but I do have my base.

Not sure why I'm having such a hard time finding a simple mid tone brown belt for Celina. With 4 months, I've got loads of time so at the moment it's not a big deal. But if anything, I can just go with a braided brown belt from Walmart. I think I found the belt I need at Old Navy, my gut is telling me not to get it.
Also, if I were to get the braided belt right now, I can promise you (meaning me) that I'll end up finding the belt I was looking for, so as much as I'm tempted to, I won't get it. I really like taking my time, though I'd like to see how things shape up as we get closer to spring.

Started painting stuff - my sword thing and the remainder of my headress. I need to get fabric for my coat which will have a liner so I can add the fiber optics. I have to start the fire resin sword. I have worked with resin before but on a very very small scale. So... Hmm

I was sort of assuming family and I would be going out this weekend, but as it turns out we didn't. So, on Tuesday after school I'll head to Michael's on the way home to pick up the gem I need for Celina's bracelet. I sanded down the sculpey part to make it smoother, now all I have to do is paint it.
Currrently deciding if I should swipe the jacket I found for Celina right now, plus the bow and leave everything else 'til later since belts and skirts and whatnot aren't going anywhere.

Edit:

I've been looking around for a decent holster that looks very similar to Ray's for Shay. It's not necasary since he doesn't actually wear one, but its a nice touch because it'd fit Shay's character; plus since I'm taking inspiration from his sister's design and trying to distinguish the two since they're already wearing a similar outfit.
I have my old Jesse Anderson 'deck box' that came with the outfit and I'm honestly not sure if I should use that with just a regular leather dog choker. It'll give the illusion and I meet in the middle with a two toned thigh holster but I don't want to be cheap.

Slowly much surely, more progress. Turns out having a belt, plus a leather deck box make a pretty good thigh holster. Just gotta add cardboard to make it sturdy and so that it'll keep its shape.
I've found the jacket I've been looking for Celina on another site, so currently, I might buy the jacket and the vest for Shay. Hooray for $30 plus shipping! Everything else can wait 'til later since I can find things like belts, skirts and whatnot at any given time.

Edit:

Forgot add the bow as well. Really hate sending e-mails in slight panic because of my plans falling through.

Picking up materials for Sonico this weekend (making both for my friend and I) starting small since I am stuck in an awkward situation (our landlord is selling our house but we are not sure when - we are searching for a place in the meantime, but rough not knowing a proper date) so I don't want to start anything big just yet.

Altering the look a bit because vinyl/latex doesn't seem functional for AN nor for ACTUAL beach wear so I'm going after a shiney spandex/lycra blend. Also hunting for coloured fur, Len's Mill, please provide.

Almost certainly in the Crafters Corner now (gotta send the bureaucracy things out, though), so definitely not bringing Anastasia this year! But I did get the overbust corset pattern for Abigail and her wig base has been looking at me forlornly from the box since December. I'll finally get around to STARTING on her next week, but I am going to be SO busy with making enough stock for the con. At least I've got plenty else to wear if I can't finish in time.

Did you attend the advance sewing panel last year in that dress? If so, that Anastasia dress was stunning!
