Costuming Plans

I annoy myself sometimes in my lack of motivation - either I need someone to prod me to work on a costume or it needs to be two weeks before an event before I start working on it. I miss having a costuming buddy. Sigh.

As it is, it's the new year and I have plans.

First off, there's a bunch of miniscule redos I want to do before I get to new costumes:
  • Redo Cho Chang's Skirt and Robe

  • Take in my Battle Royale Jacket

  • Redo Inara's Black Dress

  • Fine tune my new medieval dress

  • I'd really like to figure out how to make psi-blade for my Psylocke
Here are my costumes planned for 2010:
  • Xianghua from Soul Calibur II - Red Outfit

  • Mulan

  • Tinkerballa from The Guild
Those are the three that I HAVE to get done before the end of the year. I think I can do it. XD Not that I have to, but I really want to get these done. Xianghua has been in my head for years and years and years now. Marty broke out the Soul Calibur games and it was awesome.

I also have it in my head to do a couple Star Wars costumes... I want to do a Padme Amidala outfit... and even though it completely intimidates me, I want to do a Zam. Dude, her outfit is so cute and awesome but I did the research and it looks so complicated. o_O

And while I love participating in group costumes - I need to take a step back from those. I find that when I do a costume that I'm not in love with - the work is subpar. Course, when I rush a costume, the work is subpar so I need to work on that as well.
