Oh, Twitter.



(For the record, I'm really glad that Yvette, an actual RL friend of Zac's, said that, so that I wouldn't be tempted to, and therefore seem more insane stalkery. Also, it gave me an opportunity to throw one of my fave quotes into the ring so elegantly.)

That is all. Tee-hee!!! ;-)

Firefly stuff
Hey,

You don't know me, but I found your post on the Firefly costumes forum and kind of followed you over to your LJ. I'm planning on going to I-con (It's a sci fi convention @ Stoneybrooke University in NY) next year and I really wanted to do an Inara and River cosplay. I've never actually cosplayed before aside from chobits and I don't know how to sew to save my life. I was hoping however , that I might be able to see some of your Inara costume pics , for inspiration, maybe get some advice, but I couldn't find them on you LJ.

Well, here's to hopin!

Re: Firefly stuff
This is sache8-- I started a new LJ a couple of months ago.

Hmmmn. It looks like when my paid account ran out that all the pictures in my gallery have been removed from all of my old posts. That's major suckage...

But here's a post in my blogger costuming that has a couple of photos of the costume. I only have the one Inara costume:

http://threadmaiden.blogspot.com/2011/04/h-is-for-history.html

For the shirt I used Simplicity #3827 with a couple of tweaks (removing the center seam in the front, making the sleeves a little wider). For my personal taste, I also liked that it was more modest than what Inara actually wears, so if you want a more screen-accurate neckline, keep that in mind too.

For the skirt I used New Look #6854 and made it longer and tweaked a bit for the train. And added all the ruffles of course.

I didn't know how to sew when I started this, either. I had a friend teach me how to start with something basic (pajama pants) and then, honestly, I just kept practicing and practicing. I probably made five "test" shirts before I finally cut into my satin, but of course that was with all the alterations I was trying too.

Hope this helps!!
