Just caught up on Agents of SHIELD. Between that and Thor 2, I'm seriously contemplating Lady Sif. There's leather work, more worbla armor, and definitely a wig. I'd have to find something to stand in for the chain maille, too.


I feel rather like Hook -- "Don't try to stop me this time, Smee. Don't try to stop me this time, Smee. Don't you dare try to stop me this time, Smee, try to stop me. Smee, you'd better get up off your ass. Get over here, Smee...!"

Too many damned costumes I want to do, and not enough time to do them in!
andveryginger: (Emma) the friend who was going to dress as The Shadow has decided not to. I'm frustrated as this is the second time this has happened -- once with a friend who was dressing as Blade, now with someone else a few years later. On the other hand, I've still not finished the muslin for the Margo dress, and I'm finding motivation increasingly difficult to muster. I'd thought to do Margo and one other Old Hollywood costume: Barbara Stanwyck as Dixie Daisy in Lady of Burlesque.

Snipped for pic. )

Increasingly, I find myself considering dropping the Margo costume all together for this year, and concentrating on the other costume. It's going to take a little more finagling, however, as I have to combine a couple of patterns to make the dress and learn to sew lace. If I can get it done, I think I'd like to enter it into the Friday Night Costume contest at the con. Like my Abigail Whistler costume, it wouldn't be widely recognized, but I think it'd still be a lot of fun.

I'm also trying to decide if I'd be able to manage this one. It's certainly a bit more revealing than anything else I've done so far...more so because I haven't finished my other Abigail Whistler costume. I think though, with the underlining for the front or a fleshtone camisole I'll be fine.

So, what do you think? Do I drop Margo and try for Daisy? Or do I finish them both in the next 5 weeks? =)

ETA: ...and did I mention that all this travelling over the past two weeks really hasn't helped any? Talk about schedule creep! ::sigh:: Just hope I can get back to something this weekend.
