Year in Reviews continue! I will finish them before 2014, I swears! This time: Costume Edition!

Here's what I said I'd make in 2012:

1. Rebel Pilots for Rogue & me Only Rogue's got made this year.
2. At least one and hopefully more historical dresses & underpinnings! I have fabric for 18c, Regency, and mid-1800s. Nope. Every year I say I will...
3. Superhero/princess mashup (maybe?) Group didn't happen.
4. Whatever we do for SDCC Masquerade Yep! Project Runway: All Star Wars!
5. Ravenclaw robe Nope.
6. Amber's USO Girl Amber has elected to defer this costume for the time being.
7. Possibly Pink Power Ranger for a D*C group? Group didn't happen.

So then, what *did* I make? Well...

1. "Indy Anna" Jones

Indy Anna SDCC edited copy SMF_0128

My brother has always been the junior Jones in our family (except for when our dad is Indy and Sean is Shia LeBoeuf)-- but this year he couldn't come to Comic-Con. So I filled in! This costume was a snap, because Dad and Sean both own multiple copies of all the Indy accessories, so they just lent me the smallest hat, belt, bag, etc. I had originally planned on making some Katharine Hepburn-esque pants, but ultimately decided on a skirt. So I made a half-circle skirt out of some tan wool, and bought a shirt and boots. I didn't get to do my hair in a fun 30s style because I had to change into this one in the parking garage after wearing Maleficent that morning. :P At Dragon*Con we finally got our whole Indy group together for the very first time, huzzah!

Click me for the rest of the list! )

And now, planned costumes for 2013:

1. Rebel Pilot for me!
2. Sekrit SDCC Masquerade costumes (there will be many costumes, mostly alike, let's put it that way)
3. Scarlett's "shantytown" dress for a GWTW group at D*C. Yes, the trim is insane. Yes, I'm going to start early. Really.
4. Mayyyyybe Rapunzel? I keep almost doing it.
5. Whatever else comes up!

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

Here's what I made in 2011!

List with pictures under the cut! )

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?

Before I dive into my Obsessively Detailed Recaps, I thought I'd do a costume round-up post from this year's D*C.

The final tally was nine costumes, with three con debuts (Annie, USO Girl, Ravenclaw student). In order of wearing:

1. Wedding Dress
2. Annie, from Community (episodes "A Fistfull of Paintballs" and "For a Few Paintballs More")
3. Hawkgirl, as part of the Renaissance Justice League
4. Captain America USO Girl
5. Elizabeth Swann, POTC plum dress
6. "Gaga" Quinn, from Glee (episode "Theatricality")
7. Ravenclaw student, Harry Potter
8. Penny, The Big Bang Theory
9. Suki (Fire Nation disguise), Avatar: the Last Airbender

Many many pictures all under the cut! )

The problem with rarely drinking caffeine anymore is that when I do drink it, it keeps me awake. I am so smart, s-m-r-t.

I want to make FireNation!Disguise!Suki for D*C now. Even though I'm a decade too old, and I have almost no time between then and now (and I still have to finish Yvaine!). I *WANNA.*

Rogue's coat for SDCC Masq is almost done. All it needs is trim. I'd forgotten a) how much I love tailoring, and b) how much I hate to rush tailoring. It turned out pretty nice, though. Pictures coming this week, possibly before Masq but more likely after.

Okay, let's try this sleeping thing again.

Okay, so I spent most of the evening on the computer, but I managed to do a bunch of costume research for the LGBs' Avatar costumes (is Toph seriously wearing a jumpsuit? whatever, I'm making a shirt and pants) and I found and ordered what will hopefully be the fabric for my SDCC masq costume. Now I actually have to start mocking stuff up. Aaaaany minute now.

Oh, and I caught up on SYTYCD. Twiiiiiitch! Honestly, I think he benefited *so* much from not making it last season-- now everyone already knows him, and they were all rooting for him to make it onto the show. I hope Natalie tries out again next year, because I bet the same thing will happen to her.
