Well, with at least ONE costuming goal accomplished for this year I am content. ^_^
Jaina came out much better than I'd hoped! She needs a little tweaking and perhaps it is time for a new lightsaber (Seriously I've been using the same one since 2007, haha!) but other than that she is a goal I have, after nearly SEVEN years, finally accomplished!
Looking ahead to 2014, my man and I have locked down our costuming line up! We've got something pretty freaking EPIC planned, and this time...we're serious. Already sent off the information we need to our commissioner. This is the first time in my entire costuming career that I have ever commissioned a costume, and TBH I'm a little nervous. But this guy we're commissioning is really good, and I'm super excited. ^_^
So far it's looking like we're staying local in Atlanta again next year. I was trying to convince my guy to check out Anime Boston with me, because I really have been missing my old stomping ground. But time and money are two commodities that are always going to be against us.
I'm thankful for all of you guys' support throughout my costuming endeavors! Loving the feedback on my Jaina costume too! I'm so freaking proud of that flightsuit! I made every single piece by hand, completely drafted without a pattern, and it took be about three weeks to sew together. Fun fact? The pockets were my favorite part!
MTFBWY and hope you guys have a Merry Christmas!
