      • At first I was kinda ‘meh’ on this one but when I saw the difficulty level it makes more sense. This costume isn’t for me, its for the awesome cosplayers who are still not comfortable with more advanced sewing methods.
      • so that’s pretty awesome
  • DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN COMMISSION MY FRIEND SHUSHUWAFFLEZ FOR PATTERNS?
    • You totes can.
    • Seriously I watched her video on speed-drafting a bodice like five times in a row.

Events and Plans

I kind of missed the boat on this one but I’ll recap super quick.

Yeticon

WAS. AMAZING. Seriously, I treated it mostly like a vacation that happened to have a con attached and holy hell did I need a vacation after the last week. Month. Year. Decade. There was a tea party with fine china and a pony who had a unicorn on his forehead.

I’ll be snagging photos from smarter people that made sure their phones were charged all weekend.

E3

It’s E3 weekend which means a whole bunch of new games will be announced and I’ll be drooling over all the pretty costumes. I’ll recap the most cosplay friendly and least cosplay friendly games this week.

Next Con is…

Montreal Comic Con

which mostly I’m going to for Montreal and fabric shopping, but also to snoop on all the game companies that show up.
