Oh man I totally thought I was done with the 2013 recaps (aka the year before last) and then I remembered I hadn't done a Costume Year in Review!!! So here it is, the last of the 2013 recap posts (before I start the 2014 posts).

In 2012, here's what I said I'd make in 2013:

1. Rebel Pilot for me! Still nope. Maybe in 2015?
2. Sekrit SDCC Masquerade costumes (there will be many costumes, mostly alike, let's put it that way) YES! Our "Tatooine" Masquerade went swimmingly.
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. Group didn't happen.
4. Mayyyyybe Rapunzel? I keep almost doing it. Nope! Not yet!
5. Whatever else comes up! As always, so many things came up!

So here's the stuff I made/put together/bought/otherwise acquired in 2013!

1. Captain America running costume

IMG_4206 . 725226-1024-0028s

I made this for the 2013 WDW Marathon, since Ron had originally planned to be Tony Stark for that race. It's become one of my favorite running outfits!

Lots more under the cut! )

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?

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!

OMFG FINALLY. It's March, and I'm just now posting my 2008 completed projects. Yeesh!

I had a pretty good year-- 11 costumes or other pieces of clothing, all told! For me, that's a lot. XD And now, time to get cracking for this year-- just as soon as I get back from New Zealand!

Final tally and pictures! )

Happy New Year, everyone. I celebrated by spending Saturday sick in bed, nauseated and shivery, and then today trying to convince my stomach that food was not evil and, in fact, necessary for life. It wasn't all bad, though, because [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue was a total sweetie, waited on me hand and foot, and cheerfully mainlined S1 of Gilmore Girls with me ([livejournal.com profile] portnoyslp and [livejournal.com profile] mary_linton own the first three seasons, yay!). We just finished episode 19, Emily in Wonderland. Conclusions so far: we love Michel, Luke, and Lane, and OMG TALKING SO FAST. And if someone could point me toward some snarky Paris icons, that'd be awesome.

Also I now have Sky High on my computer so I can watch Warren Peace whenever I want!
