Something for Fushi, I will make it myself :) I'm using my old ginger curly wig though, because in some artwork I have seen her ginger, and I prefer that colour on me!

I've also been tasked with making our group's Call Bands, so I hope that works well.

Fushicon 2011 (Posted 27th November 2011)

So, this was my Friday and Saturday costume of Fushicon, and I have to say it was recieved really really well. It's comfy to wear and pretty warm too, actually, so that's very much a plus!
Not only did I like wearing it, but I'm pleased with all of my photos too!
I'd like to wear it again but I've a lot of improvements to make first. I need more accurate boots, and I need to make the dress a little shorter too, but no matter what, I'm still happy with my first run!

More Jacket Progress... (Posted 22nd September 2011)

Last night consisted of much pinning and stitching, so see attached for a wee progress piccy :)

Jacket Pattern (Posted 16th September 2011)

Well, I'm already well on my way. I got on my hands and knees tonight and cut out my jacket pattern on paper. Tomorrow night if I'm not too tired, I'll cut out all the pieces on fabric and add seam allowance, and then get sewing! I'm also pretty pleased I found some white lining in one of my fabric boxes, so I can use that to line the jacket rather than waiting for the chance to go out and buy some on Monday! If I weren't so tired I'd sooo start on it now!

Shopping! (Posted 15th September 2011)

So, I went shopping for fabric today for some other costumes but I wanted to get something at the very least for Karina. So I bought beads and suede! The beads are for her necklace, and the suede is for her waistcoat/jacket she has. I can't wait to get pattern cutting and sewing againnnn!
