Here are the scant few new costumes (and an oldie but goodie) I made this year. 2012 has been a helluva year. Due to personal troubles, costuming unfortunately had to take the back burner more often than I would have liked. I’m looking forward to making up for what I missed out on in 2013!
Plans are already being made regarding costumes and conventions for 2013, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a very promising year. Prospective costumes include: Mad Moxxie (BL2), Diva Plavalaguna, Promethea (the first comics I ever got my hands on!), and Witchblade, Ame-Comi Power Girl, and Risti (Queen’s Blade) are still on the docket. I’ll make a post of conventions once I have things a little more set in stone, and once a few cons confirm that I’ll be their guest!
A question I’m asked a lot is ‘What’s your favorite costume to wear?’ and I always flounder. It changes with my mood. Every costume I’ve created, I do it because I love the character and admire their qualities - their style, their attitude, their confidence, their strength. They’re like a piece to my puzzle, and when it snaps into place, I feel emboldened. I feel like I’ve leveled up.
Today is a Jessica Rabbit day. I need a little of this feeling right now.
