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! )

I just checked back through my LJ, and apparently I didn't do one of these last year! Boo on me!

So here's what I made in 2010!

List with pictures underneath the cut! )

Plans for 2011:
1. Something historical. 18c, Regency, 1860s-- I'm not sure which yet, but I've got fabric for all.
2. I badly want to do a Community group at D*C. I think we could rock their Halloween costumes. ([livejournal.com profile] lordofhaladin would make the most amazing PeggyFleming!Chang ever, amirite?)
3. Whatever we end up doing for SDCC Masq.
4. Fire Nation Suki, and finish Rogue's Piandao. Legend of Korra is coming this fall, so this SDCC should be pretty big, ATLA-wise.
5. Sekrit group costume Brittany S. Pierce as Britney Spears from her "Toxic" video. Even more nude-colored mesh and rhinestones!
6. Sekrit costume for [livejournal.com profile] barbossas_wench's group.
7. Actual Renaissance Hawkgirl! Not that [livejournal.com profile] aviendiora's dress wasn't amazing!
8. Whatever costumes Rogue wants/needs.
9. ETA: How did I forget this??? RAPUNZEL.
10. Whatever comes up!

The laundry is in the dryer (wash ALL the things) so it's time for me to start on this year's Obsessively Detailed Dragon*Con Report! (Yeah, I know I haven't done CV yet. Or SDCC. Or SYTYCD. Or summer camps. Or Children of Eden. I will though, I promise!)

Right so! Our tale this year begins on Wednesday, since we had a redeye to Dulles, and thence to Atlanta, so that we could arrive early on Thursday. Full report and pictures under the cut! My poor, poor dress dummy... )

Okay, so Thursday was not particularly interesting. I promise the next four days are WAY cooler!

Way, way more postage about Dragon*Con coming soon. But first!

I slaved away for many, many hours on my Quinn dress for our Gaga Glee group. In the end I think I made a decent recreation, although nowhere near the vision that was in my head (isn't that always the way?). What I didn't realize until the end of con was that I had also inadvertently created a costume for an entirely different character:

ACCIDENTAL HYPERBOLE AND A HALF COSPLAY FOR THE WIN!!!
