AnimeNEXT, Updates in the Costume Gallery, and Summer Plans

Its a slow process adding all my past costumes to the gallery… I have so many… So far I have added pages for my 6 most recent costumes with construction notes and photos.

AnimeNEXT is a mere 3 weeks away and there is so much to do. At this rate, I will probably only finish two of the three costumes I had planned because I have more commission work that needs to be done.  I will be debuting my Nurse Joy costume and a new Umi Ryuuzaki costume from Magic Knight Rayearth with DandelionsWish as Hikaru, and our friend Beth as Fuu.  I am actually doing most of the sewing and jewelry/armor and resin work for the Rayearth costumes, so I have quite a bit of work ahead of me.   DandelionsWish is doing the wigs and flower crowns for the costumes, she does insanely beautiful work with styling and dying wigs, so I am crazy excited!

The other costume I had been planning to make was Zelda from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Unfortunately, it will probably not get done until later this summer for the Upstate NY Cosplay Picnic in Saratoga! I was going to wear it for that event anyway because the photo locations are so lovely!

I have had to change my Dragon*Con plans as well. I do not know 100% what I am making yet, but most likely one of the many costumes I already have supplies for, Eowyn’s White Dress, Inara’s Shindig Dress, 2 different Padme costumes… the list goes on…
