The fabric for my Abaddon dress just got here!  It’s the perfect pale blue satin that looks silver from some angles, just like the screen-used dress.  I cannot wait to make this costume! /happy dance

48 days until DragonCon!

Posted this on Twitter last night, but I finished the mockup bodice for my unannounced DragonCon costume.  Which I should probably announce at some point, but I haven’t been able to come up with a clever way of doing so, so maybe I’ll just keep posting boring and yet mysterious pictures until it becomes abundantly obvious.  ;D

Filed under DragonCon Dragon*Con DragonCon 2013 cosplay costuming sewing honestly mostly I don't want to tag this until it looks more like the costume in question because the cosplay tag for this character is pretty quiet actually but if any of you want to start sending guesses to my Ask box I will happily give out hints ;) my costumes

Lost all of Friday and most of Saturday to spoonie-related bullshit (doctors are apparently incapable of dealing with pressing heart issues without turning it into 10+ hours in the Emergency Room, but yay for new drugs! ;P ), but today I’m back in the cosplay saddle again.  Got my pattern drafted and cut out, need to transfer it to muslin for the mockup next.  And then the difficult part: choosing which of these fabric samples I want to order.  Hmm hmm.
60 days until DragonCon, eek!

Good news/bad news: DragonCon 2013 cosplay edition

Good news: I finally found a new costume to add to my lineup for this year, from one of my main fandoms, that I’m crazy excited to make *and* wear. :D

Bad news: THERE ARE ONLY 66 DAYS LEFT UNTIL DRAGONCON!  What are the chances I’ll be able to put this whole thing together in time?  D:

YOU CAN DO IT!! :D

and remember to use the thought of looking murder/fabulous while tossing me across a convention hall as motivation! :D

You kick some ass in your new costume, girl! You can totally do it. Also, what costume is it? (I’m lame. I’m showing up as that weirdo Jen you know from Tumblr.)

^ this is the best costume ^

^ You two are the best, srsly.  LMAO.

Jen, now I’m imagining you rocking a tshirt that reads, in bold block letters, “THAT WEIRDO YOU KNOW FROM TUMBLR”.  I’m sure it’d go over well at DragonCon and could be a good ice breaker, hehehe.

And Jez, I was weirdly thinking more hotel room for those shenanigans, but I can’t quite figure out why my costume thoughts for us are always so oddly location-based in my head, lmao.  But yes I shall be murderfabulous.  It can be a word now.

You know, assuming I can get all the sewing done in time.  And aaaaaallllllll the hemming. ;P  Back to work.

Filed under marion-ravenwood jezunya DragonCon seriously I'm going to be hemming for DAYS cosplay costuming Dragon*Con I'm keeping it secret until I have something to actually show but Jen I will PM you momentarily

:D  Hehe, yeah, I tend to use Tumblr and Twitter as my cosplay support groups.  There’s always someone around working on something awesome, often for the same event that I’m preparing for too.  I really wasn’t planning on sewing anything completely new this year, but then (like always) this idea snuck up on me and smacked me over the head.  Good luck with your Bat suit!

The annual DragonCon flight debate

Do we get the early flight that gets in on Thursday with enough time to check in, pick up our badges, and go to dinner, or do we get the wtfearly flight and have a couple more hours to decompress before the madness starts?  If I wait another week to book the tickets, will they have gone up in price, or will someone have invented a teleporter?  Decisions decisions.

Filed under DragonCon Dragon*Con conventions why can't I just teleport there?

DragonCon!!

It was up in the air for a bit there because of my health, but hubby and I are officially definitely going to DragonCon again this year! My sister Jezunya just bought her first membership too, woot.

So now I just have to nail down my cosplay list. I’m definitely bringing River Song back, hopefully with a few new props, and steampunk Tinkerbell and my Daenerys costumes are there as a fallback, but I’d really love to do one or two new costumes this year. Maybe even something original, hmm hmm.

Anyone know of any Once Upon A Time groups forming up? One of Emma’s Tallahassee outfits is high on my list, maybe for the general meetup on Sunday if nothing else, but I’d love to be in a group, too. (Hint hint, in case anyone is looking for an Emma.)

I think Jez and I might do a low-key femme Winchesters during the day (though for once I got stuck being the younger sibling!), and I definitely need to wear Eli Wallace’s “You Are Here” shirt during the day at some point too (unless I do a full Ginn outfit, I suppose). Hubby has already said he’s bringing his Arthur Dent this year (again hopefully with a new accessory or two), so something Hitchhiker’s Guide could be cool too. And that original-something I mentioned is seriously tempting, though I’m not sure how well original stuff goes over at D*C generally. And hmm, anything happening in the Hannibal fandom at DragonCon?

So what do you guys think? Who should I be for DragonCon?

Definites:
-River Song
-femme Sam Winchester (with Jez as Dean)
-hubby’s Arthur Dent

Fallbacks:
-Steampunk Tinkerbell
-Pentos Daenerys
-Dothraki Daenerys

Possibles:
-Emma Swan, one of her Tallahassee outfits (any OUAT groups looking for an Emma?)
-Ginn (SGU)
-another River Song dress
-something from Hitchhiker’s Guide
-something from Hannibal?
-something original — high concept, very visual, hopefully people will “get” it

What do you guys think? Anyone looking to form a group? :D Any other costumes I should consider?
