    Well, I have my first project and I figure with my newness I'll set a tentative date of December. I'll be setting about making a Miraluka Jedi costume.

    Although with more modern Jedi garb.

    1. Battle Handmaiden

    [image=http://www4.images.coolspotters.com/photos/211068/padme-handmaiden-battle-costume-gallery.jpg]

    Due date: February

    2. Zayne Carrick

    [image=http://i934.photobucket.com/albums/ad182/BabyWookiee/zaynecarrickprincipal.png]

    Due date: March

    3. Frodo, Eowyn, and possibly Galadriel

    ...yeah, I know. Group costume for New York Comic Con, and Frodo is a best friend's 8 year old brother. I can't say no to that. Eowyn is the best friend, and I might do Galadriel for myself. Jury's still out on that, but I have to do LotR of some sort.

    [image=http://padawanjenn.tripod.com/LotR/galadriel7_lrg.jpg]

    Due date: October

    If I Have Time list:
    TOR Jedi armor - the trick with this is that even if someone does mass produce it, I can guarantee it will be massive on me. Also, I don't want to have man armor, I want to have lady armor, since that is totally canon. So I will be building it from scratch, which will be an adventure I've not ever had before.

    This may be my last chance to have a marathon sewing year, so I plan to take advantage of it as best as I can.

    1. Battle Maiden
    [image=http://www4.images.coolspotters.com/photos/211068/padme-handmaiden-battle-costume-gallery.jpg]
    Due: February
    With my lovely roomie DWH.

    2. Queen Talia of KotOR II
    [image=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/songofamazon/Costume/Talia.jpg]
    Due: March

    3. Sailor Astarte from the Sailor Moon musicals
    [image=http://wikimoon.org/images/myu/sailorastarte.png]
    Due: July

    4. Shizuku Tsukishima from the Ghibli movie "Whisper of the Heart"
    [image=http://images.wikia.com/studio-ghibli/images/a/ac/Shizuku.png]
    Due: July

    5. Riyo Chuchi
    [image=http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/4351/riyochuchi.jpg]
    Due: Whenever

    I would love to have Chuchi done by the time I move in July, but I've got plenty of other costumes on my list, I'm not sure if I will be able to. When I get back in grad school, I'll probably work slowly on a couple of projects like:

    6. Queen Apailana
    [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/f/fd/Apailana-large.jpg]

    I already have about half the materials, but it's an insanity project. I don't see myself finishing this for another couple of years.

    Well.... I work a lot of overtime? A Saturday or two should cover the expenses of the costume, even with the actual fabric. So, send me information! You know where to find me. :p

    You know you want to join the battle maiden group. :p

    That said, today we found out that we're soon moving to ten hour days ([face_hypnotized]), so that'll be good for my costuming budget. I need a silver lining somewhere in all this, and I think that's it.

    Finish my purple travel gown
    [image=http://www3.images.coolspotters.com/wallpapers/62798/queen-amidala-return-to-naboo-dress-v2-mobile-wallpaper.jpg]

    due in February

    The rest of 2012 I'm just planning on replacing parts and updating older costumes. Then after CVI it's time to start think about the next big project, I'm leaning towards either Endor Leia or picnic Padmé.

    This year I will finish the Imperial Navy Trooper. I have the jumpsuit, boots, belt, gloves and greeblies. Just ordered the gloves. I'm just waiting on some local folks to finish this:

    [image=http://www.501st.com/mw501/images/4/4a/IN_helmet.jpg]

    After that... I might be done with costuming for a while... unless I finally do a TK or TD.

    I only have the bodice and cloak to do plus wig to find! I may try and mold my own feet someday

    3. Custom Designed Katniss Mockingjay Dress (Hunger Games book) or Alice Ribbon Dress (Tim Burton Alice)- One of these might get tacked on if I finish Jadis in time to squeeze in another costume

    Complete: Battle Handmaiden!

    [image=http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7208/6867991969_c8968996c8.jpg]

    Next up: Zayne! He's totally not getting done by WonderCon, though. I'm working waaay too much for that. Still, I've got boots, gloves, a wig, and a mockup of the tunic and cowl. I may redo the cowl with a hood to see if that looks decent- it sometimes shows up and sometimes doesn't, so we'll see how it hangs and I'll decide if I want to keep it.

    I've also decided that my next project will be a double of Endor Leia and an Endor Rebel Soldier. I had planned to wait until after CVI, but it has turned into a group project for the Nordic RL to have an Endor team for 2013, and some members are already out sourcing materials. I'm going to go double since I've always liked Leia's Endor outfit, but there's another girl interested in it as well, and she has a much better body for it, so I thought that I could make a generic trooper to use for when she's around. Also our RL base is getting quite saturated with Leias and Padmés, so having a costume that's not a face character will make it easier to appear together.

    Where did you find that great helmet? Meesa wants!

    Hmmm...

    1. Hopefully the huzzy and I will have a house to costume! : ) The Maul Wall is expanding! Homebuyuing nixes my planned "Amidala's Greatest Hits" gown I had designed for the nexy Celebration. : (

    2. FINISHED!!! Remix of huzzy's Rebel Hoth vest. Will need to remix his jumpsuit, but he is rapidly losing weight. : )

    3. I need to work on my tailoring skills so I might make an Imperial suit, like the ones in the character guide for Admiral Daala. Why do all the Star Wars ladies have red hair?

    [image=http://starwars.wikia.com/index.php?title=Natasi_Daala&image=Daala1-jpg]

    4. I really like the (ugh) Jedi chick's outfit who's in the new video game's trailer. I don't know her name, but she has pigtails and it looks like I can dump some old Pirates of the Carribean fabric into it. If anyone has pics/screen caps, please share. : ) Please? : )

    5. I have started a Darth Zannah costume. She allegedly invented the double-bladed lightsaber. : ) Yay... couldn't possibly know where I might find one of those... and she is BLOND!

    5. (Un)Fortunately TONS of Roman re-enactment stuff for a BIG production at the Getty Villa.

    All work and no play... But you gotta have shelter for those dust storms on Tattoine, er Bakersfield. : )

    *hugs the forum*, you are back old friend (more than 10 years as a member!)

    So, cycling back to what prompted me to start joining various forums I finally got a Bounty Hunter costume finished XD Except it wasn't Zam ;) It's Shae Vizla. I got her half done this time last year so I upgraded everything and replaced about half this year :)

    Got a Movie version of Shaak Ti finished, I lost my tooth headdress before the event though so I haven't got photos of her complete yet. Hopefully soon :)

    And Darth Talon. So so fun. Most fun I have had in costume thanks to being able to be be snarly face ;) I don't really do beautiful ;) I can do derpy and chibi and Total Grump ;) I have no idea how linkies are done here any more but I do have a tumblr full of photos, and if you go through my likes you'll find some costumes and art by others :)

    Non SW costumes this year include Liara from Mass Effect 2/3 and I am currently working on Regina from Once Upon a Time. Evil queens are my costuming weakness. Just never had a real chance to make one before :)

    I've started on both an Endor Rebel Trooper, and Endor Leia. The ERT will mostly be about assembling premade stuff, but Leia will involve more actual sewing. If I get hold of either an Endor donut, or Leia's blaster in less than a month I might try to finish one of the costumes before December, otherwise my goal is to have them done by the last of April, when there's a con in Finland that I want to go to, and the people there are going for an Endor theme.
