Dragon*Con - 29 Days and Counting. . .

>> Thursday, August 5, 2010

Dragon*Con is at the end of this month and we're just now getting down to making our costumes. Lots of costumes - I'm not even going to tell you how many. . .
. . . but maybe this pile o' fabric waiting to be pre-washed will give you a hint.
For a change this year - I decided to start off with one of my costumes. All these squares are various shades and textures of black, waiting to be pieced together into a fabulous patchwork cape.
Labor intensive? Oh yes - but that's how we roll here at Gratz Industries.
Jo's getting in on the sewing action too this year. She wants to enter the costume contest as a maker - so she's doing all the sewing herself. I'm just helping with pattern drafting and technical advice. She's decided to go as Mitsumi, a Pokemon trainer from the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl graphic novel series - her current favorite book series. Here's Mitsumi. . .
Jo's working on the skirt up there at her machine. She decided to make it just a smidge longer than the skirt in the picture because she "wanted to be able to sit down without showing her underpants." Good thinking. . .
