While everyone and their mother is off having fantastic adventures at San Diego Comic Con, I am … not. So, to distance myself (and my inner jealousy monster) from the stories of magical fairyland (SDCC) that are currently flooding my Twitter feed – I ran out to take some photos of this Catwoman costume from January.
I don’t like the fabric used for this- it was a sort of metallic black spandex (it was supposed to be a shiny stretch pvc/vinyl but… wasn’t). I had brief delusions of making it out of latex (Guillem March’s and Adam Hughes’s Catwoman both seem to be fond of latex… ) I love the look of latex, but who in their right mind would fight/climb in it? I wasn’t willing to tackle the task that would’ve been learning to work in latex at the time that I made this, so settled for this (much cheaper) alternative. Aside from the fabric choice, the design is based on the new 52 (March’s) Catwoman.

Leia costume from back in November (I think?) and Pixie from February-! Still trying to catch up on photo stuff and work on projects for Dragon*Con. I haven’t been back there since 2000 and am extremely excited for it!

I managed to bungle my costume journal here- so any tutorials and convention links are rather… broken. I’m pretty sure I have backups saved somewhere and will be attempting to repair the damage over the next couple of days. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Meanwhile, I had a fabulous time at a shoot with lots of friends down in New York City over the weekend and returned home to find a DD over on DeviantArt – thank you so much! :O

Hello my poor neglected costume journal.
I have still done no costuming lately (Halloween really doesn’t count). However, since I am super excited about the new HP movie this month (and a certain HP themed release party) I’m just going to post some random HP crap. Sounds good? No? That’s fine, deal with it.

I’m giving the site an overhaul/redesign so that I can add a bunch of new stuff (about time!) but it’s probably going to take me a while – not like that’s anything new. I just want to say that I haven’t vanished off the face of the earth internet.

I haven’t sewn anything in a while, but it has been freezing lately and a new duvet seemed like it would be a fun project… despite the fact that every design from Bob Moon looks really 80′s tastic.

Cosplay wise I’ve still been kinda MIA. Busy with other things. :/
Still trying to finish my trade with Sean and I finally finished Bob’s winter school uniform- because that thing has been sitting unfinished in my closet for over a year. Pathetically enough I’ve made that skirt four times now and the top three times. How is it that the easiest things seem to give me the most trouble? And how is any of this a sane hobby? Really, sometimes I wonder.

The battle with my new wig has been pathetically unsuccessful. I just don’t like the way it looks. At this point I’m considering forgetting the new wig altogether and just putting bob moon wig efforts towards revamping the old wig.
Other than the ongoing battle with bob’s wig and and the never ending attempt to find time and motivation to get photos- I have a trade to finish with my friend Sean and work to do on a costume for Otakon. So, hopefully it rains this weekend- I’d like to get as much done as I can way ahead of time.
