Costume Progress Photos
Making dreams a reality is so sweet!! Well, costume dreams that is. Heh, heh.. This is one I’ve always wanted to do since I fell in love with cosplay.
I’ve finished my round with the muslin for my most recent costume! Now finally moving on to the real fabric! That always feels nice. :) Because every time you make a costume and do a toile first, you’re actually making two costumes every time. Pain in the ass… I know, but worth it!
I don’t want to jinx myself, but working with this pattern was pretty smooth going. Meaning I was able to go from step to step without any trouble for the most part. I still don’t understand why when i pulled the string on the top of the skirt to make the gathers, the gathers where very tight on the back side of the skirt but not in the front. I would have rather had it even all the way around instead of just on the back side. But that is how the gathers fit into the pattern. Ehh. Maybe the mystery will be solved when I do it again. :)
This will be debuted at Connooga this year! I’m excited to head back to the Choo Choo hotel and enjoy the atmosphere of the con. It’s a small con with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Plus I’m excited to see some of my good friends!
Now that you can see some more finished photos, you should be able to tell what it is, no? I’ve given some hints on Facebook and asked a few times for people to guess what costume I’m making, but I received only one response. Maybe I need to offer a cookie prize or something. ;)
