Two Best Friends

You all know Fatshirt Kirk from such adventures as...

Comic-Con 2011

the HP7 Premiere

Well now...
He's got a friend!

Meet Admiral Ackbar. Kirk's newest companion!

Follow their adventures on their Tumblr!

Dragon*Con shenanigans will soon ensue, along with Ackbar's lady, The Patchwork Pirate!

Last night I got a lot done on Leia's dress! I still have to put in the bodice lining and attaching the bodice to the skirt, and then I'll be done! Well, except a ton of hemming....

I've also chosen what spray paint I'm going to use for the belt. So that's good!! haha.

My friend Allan helped me make four new chevrons for my Stargate costume. I've got to texture and seal them, and then put them on the outfit!

Whew. Still so much left to do. But tonight I hope to finish Leia's hairpiece and put the closures on Cersei's bodice. And start on the boning. omg.

Plates are done!

The metal plates for Leia's belt are finished!!

Now to make 5 more...

That's right. NINE DAYS.
I am so not ready.

I might have been ready, but my parents suddenly decided to come into town this weekend. So my sewing time is basically cut in half.

I love them and want to see them, but gah!!!

So, I'm going to post my costume progress to help me keep track of what I still need to do. *hopefully* this will help, and not actually make me take more time....

Hopefully you're interested, too! :P

Most of the remaining work is on the Ceremonial Leia and Cersei costumes.

Cersei's underdress, corset, and overdress are constructed, but not hemmed. I also need to add boning and closures to the bodice. Pics soon, I hope. :)

The pieces for Leia's dress are cut and serged. I just need to do the actual construction, and hem everything. Hemming is such a bitch.

Basically, Leia's dress is three dresses in one. Which makes it so you can't see through the whole thing, but is also SUPER annoying.

Today I'm working on Leia's belt. I've tested four different silver spray paints on the leather, and I think I've chosen one. I have to wait for it all to finish drying, but I think I know which I'm going to use. So that's yay! But I still need to cut out all the metal plates, draft and cut the actual belt, and construct everything. Need to get my butt in gear!!!! Rawr.

Pics soon. I'll have to post them from my phone, so they'll be in smaller posts. But they'll be here soon.

Wish me luck!!!

Comic-Con Review!

Just a few thoughts from Comic-Con. For a more detailed analysis...


Comic-Con Wrap-Up

Hey guys! So I don't have a Comic-Con video up yet.....and I can't do anything but apologize for that. I will make one. Soon. I have, however, written an article about Comic-Con for Space Gypsies! Go check it out, and let me know what you think!

Also, last weekend I attended Whedonfest, put on by Whedonites United. I had a great time and won 1st place in my category in the costume contest! Check out my Lady Mal AKA "Captain Short Pants" costume over on my twitter - tab at the top of the page! I had a great time at Whedonfest, and encourage you to attend next year! We played Whedon trivia games, watched Serenity and Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, and lots of other awesome stuff! It was part of Can't Stop The Serenity charity events benefiting Equality Now, Kids Need to Read, and our local charity, New Leash on Life. We had a great time and helped make the world better, too! So all around a good weekend.  <3 and miss you guys!!
