I am ever so slooooowly making my way through my list of costumes that I posted before.
Wore Lady Lovely Locks to AAC back in October, and to Arisia in January, and it sits at roughly 95% finished (sew on the rainbow ribbons and finish styling her bangs).
Wore Telma to Anime Boston this year (more on that forthcoming). Telma needs the black patterns on front and back to be appliqued on, and then there are some replacements/upgrades I would like to make before wearing it again, but overall I was happy with her. I’d also put her completion at around 90-95%.
For future works:
-Troll Rosella over the summer
-Rosie in time for this Halloween (either of the above, possibly worn to AAC)
-Make Ursula for Arisia 2014, with possible hopes of entering it in the masquerade(?!).
-Queen Brahne (new project!) for AB in March 2014, since there’s that FFIX group.
“Let me take this [optionally, vintage] item that is gigantic on my body, chop off the sleeves/bottom/back/top/decoration [select all that apply], and take in the side seams! Look how much sexier [rarely, cuter] it is now!”
Repeat ad nauseum.
Not getting nearly as much sewing done as I really want to be, and there’s some commission work that really, really needs to get done in the next week.
I accidentally dyed something too dark, and am currently wondering whether I should bother trying to take the color back, or leave as-is and find a new coordinating fabric.
Contemplating the pros and cons of skirts at camp, and I really should make an apron. Hmmm… might be less averse to potential garment harm if I mod the skirts from current skirts in my frankenstein pile.
Am also breaking in a pair of 14-eyelet doc martens, which my feet do not thank me for.
So, I’m pretty much horrible at keeping up with any sort of journal or similar. The best I did was keeping a record of my trip to Japan back in high school, and even that kinda got neglected after we left the host families in Hiroshima. All in all, this should be a new experience for me.
I want to have a record of what’s going on, though truth be told, a lot of this is probably going to be related to my costuming efforts. Hopefully, this will help keep me on track with projects, as I’m rather fond of the documentation that a dress diary involves, even if I haven’t done a straight dress diary yet. I’ll also likely slip into comments regarding a theater group I’m involved with on campus. And cats, because cats are crucial to the proper running of the interwebs.
