Tis the Season for plotting

Apocalypse Wendy

I hope everyone had/is having a great [holiday of choice]!

Now that the stress of shopping for gifts and wrapping them and then playing with my adorable niece (I know life is so hard…) is over, I can get back to the important business of sewing! And drinking. Primarily sewing though.

New Year’s is just around the corner so what better time to give a general update on where I’m at, where I’m planning to be and what I’ll be wearing?

Costume Progress

This is the part where you will first notice how in depth I plan. It helps to keep track of where I am with which costume. It also gives me something to do in a spreadsheet that looks like work.

Demon Hunter 2.0 – Diablo 3Demon Hunter (c) Blizzard

Scrapped!

Demon Hunter

Why?

  • I seriously suck at armor. And I chose the class with the most armor aside from the barbarian? ugh why?
  • There’s been a lot of great Demon Hunter cosplays around.
  • I’d have to start over from scratch
  • Seriously, that armor.
  • Fuck armor.
  • Fuck it hard!

Planned for 2013

Khaleesi Daenerys – A Song of Ice and Fire

Khaleesi Daenerys

I can’t wait for this one. I already have a white/silver wig for her and I’ll be on the scavenge trail for some old thick tweedy fabric.

I’ll also probably have to make a trip out to the leather outlet to get a hide for her skirt.

Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!

Wizard – Diablo 3

Diablo 3 Wizard

This picture’s a little hard to see, but basically this will be the ‘blockbuster’ costume of 2013. I’m already kind of scared of it.

It’s still Diablo 3-pretty but at least most of it’s sewing and not that god forsaken armor.

…Fucking armor.

Conventions

In no particular order…

  • Ottawa ComicCon
  • G-Anime
  • Costume Con Toronto (not until 2014… cry)
  • GenCon
  • A number of further American cons to be determined based on travel and lodgings
