It's still early January, so this post is barely late at all!

Here's what I made in 2011!

Back at the start of the year, I made a list. How'd I do?

1. Something historical. 18c, Regency, 1860s-- I'm not sure which yet, but I've got fabric for all.
Nope. That got pushed till this year since I'm going to Costume-Con (and very possibly Costume College! YAY!).

2. I badly want to do a Community group at D*C. I think we could rock their Halloween costumes.
WE DID IT! Although we decided to do their paintball costumes instead. And Dan Harmon RTed our costumes on Twitter!

3. Whatever we end up doing for SDCC Masq.
No Masquerade this year, for the first time in 8 years! SHOCK! HORROR!

4. Fire Nation Suki, and finish Rogue's Piandao.

5. Brittany S. Pierce as Britney Spears from her "Toxic" video.
Nope. Amber couldn't come to D*C so the Brittany/Britney group didn't happen. J9 still wore hers for a very brief but memorable period. :D

6. Sekrit costume for barbossas_wench's group.
No Jenn, so no group. :(

7. Actual Renaissance Hawkgirl! Not that aviendiora's dress wasn't amazing!
I didn't make a whole new dress as I'd planned (although Jen made me a corset and farthingale because SHE IS AWESOME). But Jen embroidered a new forepart for the old dress and made me a gold silk partlet and sleeves (again, AWESOME), and I painted some cheap angel wings with gray dye. So some definite improvements made this year!


8. Whatever costumes Rogue wants/needs.
Nope-- he made his own! I served in an advisory capacity, but he made his Genderbent Huntress all by himself, start to finish!

9. ETA: How did I forget this??? RAPUNZEL.
Not this year. Although everyone else and their mother did. This is still planned for someday!

10. Whatever comes up!
Quite a lot of things came up, as it turned out!

10a. Captain America USO Girl
One of those OMG MUST MAKE costumes. I leapt on board about a nanosecond after seeing the first promo shot that [livejournal.com profile] kay_dee70 posted.

kaydee2 . kaydee1

10b. Ravenclaw student
Teeechnially not finished, as the robe I'm wearing isn't mine, it's [livejournal.com profile] aviendiora's. I'm counting it anyway!


10c. Penny, The Big Bang Theory
I had this costume in 2010, but now I have a better wig and the screen-accurate skirt!

10d. Tiny Wonder Woman
A Halloween costume for [livejournal.com profile] eliz's little girl!

10e. Tiny Link
A Halloween costume for Jon and Janet's little boy! (I gotta get some better pictures of this. There's so much more detail than is visible here!) Props to [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue for the assist on the shield!


10f. Tardis/Dalek Hawaiian shirt for Ron
J9 had leftover Spoonflower fabric from making a skirt and asked if I would make Ron a matching shirt. It only took me three months! :P


10g. Running Leias- Slave & Senatorial
I'm putting these together because they weren't terribly much work, although they weren't completely off the rack either!

So what's the plan for this year?

1. Rebel Pilots for Rogue & me
2. At least one and hopefully more historical dresses & underpinnings! I have fabric for 18c, Regency, and mid-1800s. I feel like I should make a 19-teens dress, too, even though I don't love the style, because a) everyone is doing it, and b) HELLO DOWNTOWN ABBEY OBSESSION.
3. Superhero/princess mashup (maybe?)
4. Whatever we do for SDCC Masquerade
5. Ravenclaw robe
6. Amber's USO Girl
7. Possibly Pink Power Ranger for a D*C group?

Still not sure exactly what we're going to do for it...it's one of those sort of nebulous ideas. Hopefully it'll come together!

Such pretty costumes! I would love to see you at Costume College! All your costumes would be appreciated there not just new historical ones.

Thanks! Yeah, but C-C and CoCo give me an actual reason to make historical stuff. Otherwise I have no place to wear it but Dragon*Con...and there's the luggage space issue for that.

Wow, you did a lot this year!

It didn't seem like it at the time, but looking back, a fair bit of stuff happened! Probably it always seems like less because the actual sewing is compressed into a few frantic weeks. :P

Awesome work! Can't wait to see what you do for this year!

Thank you! Right back at you!

OMG!!! DOWNTON ABBEY!!! Ummm...what I mean is I may have watched season one a few times... =)

All your costumes look so fantastic! Still really love the USO girl. And speaking of corset and farthingale, I probably should finish that soon. ;)

OMG HAVE YOU SEEN SERIES TWO YET!? Because um. I might have files.

I'm telling you, you want to be a USO girl...you want to be a USO girl...

We should sewing-party for Costume-Con stuffs!

I was waiting until Feb. 7th. Yes, I have it on preorder and it will be arriving on the day it's released. =) But not having to wait nearly a month would be wonderful!

Sewing party! I don't think this week will work (friend from high-school is in town) but maybe next week?
