I bought fabric this weekend! I usually procrastinate and do my costume right before I con, but I really want to do a nice job with this one, so hopefully I stay on the ball here....

Thanks! My pattern wasn't exactly to my size, so I made a prototype out of a sheet to get the measurements right. That got done this weekend, so I'm going to make a normal skirt I can wear to work for practice, and then make the skirt for my cosplay! I should get skirt v2.0 done next weekend or so - I have to get a few supplies I didn't know I needed until I made that prototype! (I had never made a full garment from scratch before, nor worked with patterns, so I'm still learning a few things here! I've always taken preexisting garments and altered them, so this opens up a whole new world of possibilities for me... being in the fabric store was worse than the candy store! )

I've gotten my fabric and beads in order, my base wig is straightened and conditioned, I just need to start construction. Anyone else?

P.S. I got a new avatar, that's something.

*Mental Note*
I may need to ask advice of you on how to style a wig for a con in May, or talk about commissioning it from you....

If I can get my house cleared post-holiday, I should be able to complete most of the sewing (except the gold collar piece.... ) by the New Year if I am focused... the holiday hub-bub and a barrage of non-specific malaises have hit me (grr!) Then I can focus on the details... the details... the details... I can handle it though, if I keep my mind on it.

(sorry - jitters - after making simpler cosplays for so long, I'm really wanting this to be my debut onto the cosplay radar, so I'm kind of nervous about doing a really good job!! )

Update: The last of the fabric except for a few small things and some lining material have been purchased thanks to the HUGE sale (Yay!!). At this point I have almost all the supplies I need except for some little things to make everything. I didn't get to start sewing over the holiday becuase of all the family coming and going, but I did get to sew a little on another project I am trying to finish first and practiced a few techniques I hope will benefit this cosplay. I pwn the invisible hem stitch now (my machine won't do it so I have to do by hand - my current project is a skirt with white parts, and I was using black thread - NONE of it shows! Yay!)! It will really help avoid strange lines on the cosplay and keep things looking smooth and fluid.

I have all of this weekend blocked off to sew and recover from the holiday! Santa even brought a new neck massager to work out the kinks after hunching over the sewing machine!

I forgot to mention! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope it brings everyone nothing but the best!!

Good question. How many people are still on the PoH boat? And what are they going as? I'm dying to know.

I live local to the con, so I'm flexible on meeting up.

That so figures, because I'll be in costume contest with Medusa, maybe Sunday?

Sunday sounds good. I will probably be in the contest as Bird.
