This is very tentative, but I’m really hoping that it will become the list of costumes I’m going to be taking to DragonCon this year. First Doctor Bathing Beauty Bitch Planet inmate The Doctor (Kimono) Star Trek Fangirl 21st Century Doctor Who Fangirl The First Doctor Bathing Beauty is the only one actually done at this… Read More DragonCon 2017 Plans
The First Doctor Bathing Beauty’s suit is finally sewn together. I just have to add a couple of things so it closes and the bloomers will stay up. Also, Harry’s new coat continues to inch toward completion. Hopefully I will have pics up soon!
Last night I got my work area cleaned off and started sewing the bathing suit. I sewed up everything that I could and really didn’t want to have to cut more fabric so things would fit, so I started on Harry’s coat. That must be the point where I fell into the time vortex, because… Read More I am a sewing fool!
Success! I finally have a pile of pieces cut from black flannel and cream poly fabric. I have buttons and elastic. I have thread. I just have to figure out how to put them all together to make an Edwardian bathing suit before next Wednesday. Ugh.
Let the chaos begin! I have my app installed, my packing list ready, and three out of five costumes to complete. Here’s the plan: Friday Morning: First Doctor bathing suit for Bathing Beauties photoshoot Friday Afternoon: Harry Dresden for Legendary Sleuths photoshoot Friday Evening: SG-13 Woodland Uniform for the Intergalactic Military Ball Saturday Morning: Post-regeneration… Read More 17 days to go…

Partially because of everything that is involved in getting the First Doctor Bathing Beauty right. I don’t think I’ve fully explained this outfit yet. It might help explain why I keep not getting… Read More It’s clean!
There are 60 days left before Dragon*Con. Which means I have 55 days to get three costumes done and ready to go. That is part of why I am taking Tuesday off. My goal is to get my room clean and organized. That way I will have the space to use the sewing machine again.… Read More Running out of time
Tonight I’m actually watching Heroes of Cosplay when it’s on and I’m finding myself feeling ambivalent. It’s a little discouraging listening to Riki and Katie talk about needing the “wow factor” so they can win the prize and totally stun the judges. It makes me not want to compete because I don’t have the money,… Read More Heroes
I will be posting fully later, but I wanted to post a couple of updates. I’ve washed five wigs quite successfully. I’m hoping to get them trimmed and styled tomorrow. Friday both my goggles and umbrella came for my First Doctor bathing beauty. Who knows, if I have time, I might even get started on… Read More Quick update
