deense: (comics: batgirl: steph)
So, I'm going to three big conventions this year, and need to focus my costume making for them. I have two things being made for me, one of which I need to make a bunch of props for, and one I do not. I believe I have time to make three things, POSSIBLY four without pushing myself. I have a few commission like things to finish (plushies and one tunic with embroidery) that I have to finish first before working on any of this. So... Time to figure out what I want to do and what's important.

I also may need help making some decisions.My many ideas are here

So the two things I have being made are Medusa and Huntress. Medusa will be pretty much good to go, I have the boots, I need to do some wig surgery, but the outfit as I get it is wearable. Huntress needs more work. I need to source/make a crossbow, a belt with pouches, thigh holster and mask, and find and likely COVER boots (plus kneepads). That being said, there is a limited amount of work to be done on these two, and Medusa most definitely will make it out at these two events. To be honest, Huntress will likely be put away and come out at Melbourne Armageddon in October.

I am DEFINITELY doing a steampunk Alice. Inspirations as follows:

Then there's the to make/inspirations:

Yes, it's a post about my ever evolving costuming and cosplay plans. So much to make, so little time.

First, an updated schedule of events:

July 24 Steampunk Picnic and ZigZag railway trip - revamp Steampunk outfit PHEW! One less sewing outfit. This is sister-wives day!

September 23-26 Gen-Con Oz (Brisbane - Cosplay - Mulan Disney Princess Superhero & Huntress)

October 1-4 Spring War
October 15-17 Melgeddon (Melbourne - Cosplay - Huntress & Charlotte from Princess and Frog & Powergirl from Adam Hughe's power of DC pic)

December 11 Gate to the Sanctuary

January 14-15 Twelfth Night (Canberra) - 14th C Italian Dress (that one or the Dragonfly Dress

February 18-21 Gallifrey (LA - Cosplay - Nyssa Black Orchid dress & Tegan Stewardess outfit) - Will likely end up staying about a week and having visits with peeps and a mini Deense-con, not exactly sure of dates. Must also have some basic sewing done so I can spend time with [ profile] silensy and work on her Steph Brown Batgirl)
February 26-27 Sydgeddon (Cosplay - Scandal Savage, Cheshire)

April - Brisnova (Brisbane - Cosplay - Mockingbird, Steampunk Ivy, Cheshire
April - Melnova (Redux of BLack Orchid Nyssa)


September 2011 (YES I LOOK AHEAD) Dragon*Con (Queen of Fables, Cheshire or Scandal Savage, and ???)
Will be doing a Deense-Con here too, and going to Disney World after.

Before I do any of that, I really need to finish John's tunics including embroidery, and make a dress for a girlfriend in the US! YAY.

Now onto the visual portion of our post! )

Think I have my work cut out for me?

I know there likely aren't that many people on my FList who care about my costuming plans for the years, but here they are. 3 fandom/cosplay, and 3 medieval

Finally, there's my other steampunk idea. Which combines two dresses into an evening gown and adds a bunch of embellishment

Add to these SEVEN things, one, mebbe two outfits for another person I know *cough*[ profile] silensy*cough* and the repairs I need to make to my current garb and the fact that I'd love to make the Pieta dress as well (YEAR AFTER I TELL MYSELF), and it's a busy year!

I better start working on my schedule! :D

I know all I've been talking about lately is the con and costuming. But it's a big thing! I picture costuming (and that includes SCA) taking a larger role in my life again. YAY! I had forgotten how much I loved it, and I adore getting the passion for it back.

But, before I do go back to other things, someone video'd me asking Christopher Heyerdahl a question. No, really, they did. WIN.

Also, two last photos. Oh, and I should mention that the whole set is here, many taken on my iphone.

can you believe we're the same two people? )

And now, far too late and before I discuss Wicked, I go to bed.

I went to Armageddon in Melbourne this weekend with my Mark 1 Romana II outfit.

There were some issues. I need to sew straps onto the shoes so I have mary janes. I want to redo the crests so they're smaller, and I will redo the pinafore underneath so it's an actual gymslip.

Can I say that I put this on and immediately felt like Madeline. :D

I wish you could see the candy pins on the right lapel in the photos, but I was turned the wrong way.
