Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I’m pretty excited for Thanksgiving this year, despite out-of-state travel plans happening last minute. I actually don’t have a lot to share this month since my con season is over for 2014, but here are the projects on my craft table right now:
Stanley Tweedle: 90% complete
You might remember me mentioning this costume back in October. I’ve spent the last few weeks researching and working on this costume. Overall, it hasn’t been a difficult project, but I have picked up a few new skills. The flap pocket is fairly time consuming, but it is so, so pretty. I really want to incorporate this into my tailored jacket. As of this posting, all I need to do in order to finish this commission is finish the pillbox hat (I’m embroidering this sucker during our drive to visit family) and finish a small bit of detail work. Can’t wait to see the final costume on its new owner!
Captain Cold and Squirrel Girl bodysuits: Research/Gathering Materials
One of my good cos-friends recently asked me to make some spandex bodysuits for her. I love working with spandex, so I was more than happy to oblige. As of right now, I’m gathering the materials for these projects and planning out patterns.
Captain Marvel: Research/Gathering Materials
Are you guys and gals as psyched about Marvel Phase 3 as I am? I did some hardcore shrieking when I saw that Carol’s getting her own movie. I’m really feeling the Carol love right now, so I’m bumping up my plans to make Captain Marvel. I’ve got all my fabric and other supplies on order and will hopefully debut this costume either at Ikkicon in January (birthday con!) or Fan Days in February.
Tailored Jacket: Gathering Materials and Muslin Making
I haven’t been able to make much progress on my tailored jacket this month with Princess Jupiter and Stanley Tweedle. However, I did finally decide to make my jacket using Butterick 5685 (pattern on the left). I thought about going with a basic peacoat pattern, but I already have one of those (even though it’s in purple and has way more belts than necessary). Hopefully I’ll have progress to share soon!
What are you working on right now?
