Hello, Internet
I realize that most of the users here are from the UK, but I decided to join because cosplayIsland looked like it had more activity in certain areas than most of the US forums I could find.

I'm hoping to work on River Tam (I would love to do her long pink tiered dress but I'm never going to be able to find accurate enough fabric, especially because there are so many different ones and it was purchased secondhand by the costume designer--probably the costume I go with will be determined on the cost and availability of materials) and Astonishing Kitty Pryde. And I'm going to do them in the order that materials become affordable/available, so probably that means Kitty first because black and yellow spandex is much easier to come by than almost anything River wears.

These would be the first costumes I've really made myself. I've put together costumes and contributed a bit in the way of accessories, but never really done the whole thing by myself. That means doing researching my butt off and practicing as much as possible before I go for the real thing, so I've been trying to find somewhere to look for advice and that's how I ended up here.

Thank you for reading if you've made it this far. If you skipped most of it I don't blame you.

The Shindig dress? Great choice. Put it on your "planned" list anyway. You might feel differently (or have more money/skill/time) later in your cosplaying career.

Welcome to the boards. We're friendly, but traffic is slow here. Don't be disheartened if a post isn't replied to after a few days

EDIT: I am a derp. I've no idea why I read "River Tam" as "Kaylee" XD
