To be honest I’ve been costuming for a few years now and I still have trouble discussing my costuming hobby with non-costumers and non-nerds. I have no issues talking about how I like to sew, but getting into what I sew and how I love to put on costumes and run around at conventions is a more private matter for me. I’m already secretive about what costumes I plan to do so I suppose this is just an extension of it.

Anyways, I’m coming out of the costuming closet so to speak. Not that I ever kept it a real secret or so hush-hush, but I tend to be shy about the subject so I want to be more open.

So yes, I’m a nerd, and yes, I sew, and I like to put on costumes and run around conventions. It’s a great hobby. I love the feeling of accomplishment when I learn a new sewing technique or when I finish a part of a costume. I love being in costume groups with my friends or running into people who obviously share the same love for whatever books/movies/videogames. Rawr!

And um, that’s it.

Nerd high five!

You're much more respectable than me in this regard.

I love your costumes :)

In April I bought a flight suit at an airshow and told everyone it to wear when I got my own airplane. And while this is *sort of* true, I really got it for my Kaylee costume :p

You should totally talk about it. I think we've reached a point in our lives where we're surrounded by people that we can be ourselves around. And if they judge us for our hobbies that bring us happy, then maybe they aren't worth being around.

You're so right. If there are people who don't like it or think I'm weird, they can go eat poop. XD
